CALL FOR PAPERS
Special Issue on Demand Side Management and Electric Vehicle Technologies
The increasing penetration of renewable energies brings more fluctuations to power systems, which needs more resources to maintain the balance between supply and demand. With the development of the information and communication technology, demand side resources have been able to assist the system balance by load control technologies, which is called demand side management (DSM). DSM is regard as a way of reducing or shifting electricity demand to fit the increase or decrease of power supply. Flexible loads, such as energy storage equipment, air conditioners, heat pumps and water heaters, are increasing in demand side, which can be adjusted temporarily to change the power consumption and it have little influence on the customers’ comfort. DSM has various beneficial effects, including mitigating electrical system emergencies, reducing the number of blackouts and increasing system reliability. Therefore, DSM can be applied to power systems to provide significant economy, reliability and environment benefits.
The electric vehicle (EV) technologies are considered to address the issue of the reduction of carbon and greenhouse gas emissions. The concept of EVs focuses on the utilization of alternative energy resources (i.e., batteries and ultra-capacitors). Therefore, EVs and Plug-in hybrid EVs (PHEVs) are expected to become much more common in upcoming decades. However, EV systems currently face challenges in energy storage systems (ESSs) with regard to their safety, size, cost, and overall management issues. Although the widespread popularity of EVs can be seen as a way to realize sustainable energy supplies, it is found that their large power demand with the increasing number of PHEVs/EVs will have an impact on power system stability and operation.
This special issue aims to publish original research papers and reviews on the technologies, algorithms, strategies, platforms and case studies related to demand side management and electric vehicles.
Topics of interest (include but are not limited to):
1. Demand side management methods
2. Modelling approaches for smart appliances, smart home and smart buildings
3. Coordinated management of energy resources
4. Operation and planning of integrated energy system
5. Modeling and control methods of power systems considering PHEVs/EVs.
6. State estimations, characterization analysis of PHEVs/EVs.
7. Planning of charging stations for PHEVs/EVs.
8. Fault diagnosis and prognosis, failure modes of PHEVs/EVs.
This special issue solicits any original work that is not under consideration for publication in other journals and magazines. Authors should refer to https://www.pcmp.springeropen.com or https://www.pcmp.info for information about content and formatting of submissions.
