Abstract:A time-period dividing method is proposed for the time-of-use(TOU) charging price of plug-in electric vehicles based on a comparative analysis on time periods of TOU price in power grids and peak-valley time periods of local distribution networks. Based on the TOU charging price a mathematical optimization model is developed with two control objectives : maximizing the economic benefits of charging station and minimizing the variance of equivalent load curve. Comparing uncoordinated and coordinated charging mo… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
