Mobility-Aware Load Management Algorithms for Electric Vehicles

Presented by: 
Mahnoosh Alizadeh
Thursday 2nd May 2019 - 09:00 to 10:00
INI Seminar Room 1
In this talk, we will discuss pricing mechanisms and/or routing algorithms that can be used to manage the charging demand of a population of electric vehicles. After presenting an overview of some recent results, two main papers will be discussed. In the first part of the talk, I will present on the design of optimal pricing and routing policies to provide differentiated services in a network of fast charging stations, where customers have different values of time and energy demands. The second part of the talk is focused on residential EV demand management under real-time pricing programs. We will discuss the application of multi-armed bandit based algorithms for price design, where customers' price response is modeled as a stochastic system with unknown parameters. Given the presence of reliability constraints in power systems, we will discuss the application of well-known bandit heuristics in constrained environments and discuss the effects of reliability constraints on the regret guarantees of the algorithms.
