Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 2018 International Conference on Innovation, Communication, and Engineering (TIKI ICICE 2018, http://2018.icice.asia/) will be held in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, P. R. China on November 9–14, 2018, and will provide a unified communication platform for a wide range of topics. This Special Issue of Energies entitled “Selected Papers from TIKI ICICE 2018” provides related scientific research, technology development, and policy and management studies. It publishes reviews and regular research papers. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. The full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced.

This Special Issue selects excellent papers from TIKI ICICE 2018. We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles to this Special Issue. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Energy Fundamentals
  • Primary Energy Sources
  • Secondary Energy Sources and Energy Carriers
  • Energy Exploration
  • Intermediate and Final Energy Use
  • Energy Conversion Systems
  • Energy Policy
  • Exergy
  • Energetics
  • Energy Research and Development

In this paper, a statistical cloud model was proposed for optimal design of the proportional integral derivative (PID) controllers used in current control of vehicle-to-grid connected inverter systems with PID parameters. By collecting the effective control factors and noise factors from a cloud data base, the cloud model can minimize both the reactive power and the total harmonic distortion for the single-phase full-bridge vehicle-to-grid connected system. The multi-objective optimal solution is obtained by using statistical fuzzy-based response surface methodology with multiple performance characteristics index. The testing results showed the validity of the proposed cloud model. It is verified that the statistical cloud model can increase the performance of the single-phase full-bridge vehicle-to-grid connected system in practical vehicle-to-grid applications in the Internet of Things.

In Taiwan, over 45% of the energy in common buildings is used for the air-conditioning system. In particular, the chiller plant consumes about 70% of the energy in air-conditioning system. The electric energy consumption of air-condition system in a clean room of semiconductor factory is about 5–10 times of that in a common building. Consequently, the optimal chiller loading in energy saving of building is a vital issue. This paper develops a new algorithm to solve optimal chiller loading (OCL) problems. The proposed two-stage differential evolution algorithm integrated the advantages of exploration (global search) in the modified binary differential evolution (MBDE) algorithm and exploitation (local search) in the real-valued differential evolution (DE) algorithm for finding the optimal solution of OCL problems. In order to show the performance of the proposed algorithm, comparison with other optimization methods has been done and analyzed. The result shows that the proposed algorithm can obtain similar or better solution in comparison to previous studies. It is a promising approach for the OCL problem. Full article

In many industries and medical power system applications, dual power source design is often used to ensure that the equipment runs continuously, even when the main power supply is shut down. However, the voltage feedback between two independent power supplies and low loss output are critical issues for the system energy dissipation. Without using a dedicated chip, a new mutual blocking control technology is proposed in this paper to effectively solve the problem of voltage feedback existing in the conventional dual power system. In addition, without adding much hardware cost, the proposed dual power switch design can completely avoid voltage feedback and achieve a low voltage loss of about 30 mV when the load current is less than 0.5 A.
