Plug-in Electric Vehicle Load Modeling for Smart Charging Strategies in Microgrids

2021-01-01
The widespread adoption of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) is a path to be taken towards a green energy future, yet the uncoordinated penetration of PEVs prompts overloadings and low voltage violations that the existing power grid is not capable of managing. This issue can be addressed by utilizing PEV load models in component selection and smart charging strategies. PEV load modeling researches focus on the aggregator's and system operator's perspectives, and consideration of individual PEV loads in charging strategies tend to use generalized assumptions. However, consumers' perspectives should also be considered in real-time charging strategies. This paper presents a method to develop the individual load models of PEV users with Kernel Density Estimation (KDE) for smart charging strategies. A simulations section that compares uncoordinated, coordinated, and First Come First Serve (FCFS) charging approaches is presented. The results show that individual load models complement smart charging algorithms' decision process.

Design of a Centralized Microgrid Controller in Compliance with IEEE 2030.7 Standard
Pouraltafi-Kheljan, Soheil; Göl, Murat; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2021-9-10)
With the incorporation of renewable distributed energy resources and electric vehicles and battery storage systems into the conventional grid structure, the need for a microgrid and its control is emerging. IEEE 2030.7 Standard defines the Microgrid control system as a key element of microgrid regulating every aspect of it at the point-of-interconnection (POI) with the distribution system and autonomously manages operations such as transitions of operating modes. This system consists of control functions, w...
Rebound effects for households’ energy efficient vehicles
Yüksel, Dilan.; Sarı, Ramazan; Department of Earth System Science (2019)
Energy efficiency is one of the most critical dimensions in energy consumption and the technologies improving energy efficiency thus decreasing energy demand as well as greenhouse gases have been becoming widespread in recent years. On the other hand, the fact that the savings owing to the improvements in energy efficiency would not happen as expected indicates a phenomenon which has been being addressed for a long a time in the literature and practice: Rebound Effect. This concept emphasizes that the cost ...
Reacting flow analysis of a cavity-based scramjet combustor using a Jacobian-free Newton-Krylov method
Rouzbar, R.; Eyi, Sinan (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2018-12-01)
The scramjet is a rather a new technology and there are many issues related to their operation, especially when it comes to the combustion processes. Combustion in high-speed flows causes various problems such as flame instability and poor fuel-air mixing efficiency. One of the methods used to overcome these problems is to recess a cavity in the combustor wall where a secondary flow is generated. In this study, a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code is developed to analyse the reacting flow passing throu...
