Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Journal is pleased to announce a call for papers for a special issue on "Advanced Optimization Strategy of Electric Vehicle and Smart Grid." This special issue aims to explore the emerging field of advanced optimization techniques and strategies in the context of electric vehicles (EVs) and smart grids. We invite researchers, academics, and industry experts to contribute their original research and insights to enhance our understanding and address the challenges in optimizing the integration and operation of EVs and smart grids.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Advanced optimization algorithms for EV charging and discharging scheduling.
  • Intelligent energy management systems for EVs and smart grids.
  • Optimal resource allocation and demand response in EV-grid integration.
  • Grid-friendly charging strategies for large-scale EV penetration.
  • Optimization of power flow and energy storage in EV charging infrastructure.
  • Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) optimization and control strategies.
  • Multi-objective optimization for EV fleet management and grid stability.
  • Optimization of renewable energy integration and EV charging infrastructure.
  • Energy trading and market mechanisms for EV and smart grid interaction.
  • Optimization models for EV routing, range estimation, and energy consumption.
  • Data analytics and machine learning approaches for EV and smart grid optimization.
  • Cybersecurity and privacy considerations in optimized EV-grid systems.

The electrification of the transport sector has emerged as a game changer in addressing the issues of climate change caused by global warming. However, the unregulated expansion and simplistic approach to electric vehicle (EV) charging pose substantial risks to grid stability and efficiency. Intelligent charging techniques using Information and Communication Technology, known as smart charging, enable the transformation of the EV fleets from passive consumers to active participants within the grid ecosystem. This concept facilitates the EV fleet’s contribution to various grid services, enhancing grid functionality and resilience. This paper investigates the optimal infrastructure design for a smart charging system within the Monash microgrid (Clayton campus). We introduce a centralized Grid-to-Vehicle (G2V) algorithm and formulate three optimization problems utilizing linear and least-squares programming methods. These problems address tariff structures between the main grid and microgrid, aiming to maximize aggregator profits or minimize load fluctuations while meeting EV users’ charging needs. Additionally, our framework incorporates network-aware coordination via the Newton–Raphson method, leveraging EVs’ charging flexibility to mitigate congestion and node voltage issues. We evaluate the G2V algorithm’s performance under increasing EV user demand through simulation and analyze the net present value (NPV) over 15 years. The results highlight the effectiveness of our proposed framework in optimizing grid operation management. Moreover, our case study offers valuable insights into an efficient investment strategy for deploying the G2V system on campus. Full article
