EOI 2020 - Electric Vehicle Integration in a Smart Microgrid Environment



VenueOnline, Online Online



Topics/Call fo Papers

The growing demand for energy in today’s scenario especially in the Middle East and South East Asia has been met with massive exploitation of fossil fuels which has resulted in an increase in pollutants emission. Further, to mitigate the escalating issues from conventional vehicles, there is expanded accentuation on the adoption of Electric Vehicles (EVs). Thus, the increase in pollutants emission due to use of fossil fuels and the apparent surge in power demand from the emerging EV charging Infrastructure will potentially be minimalized by Smart Micro grids.
This book will examine the current energy scenario for micro grids over the Middle East & South Asia and will discuss the challenges and opportunities due to the increasing penetration of distributed power generation systems and electric vehicles (EVs) into the micro grids. Wind power and solar power can be generated by wind turbines and photo-voltaic, respectively, while these are intermittent in nature. EVs and hybrid EVs use a battery energy storage system and charging facilities while the latter also includes an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) to provide an extra energy source.
Recently, significant discussion has focused on various aspects of EV Integration in the context of smart Micro grid management, such as scheduling, planning, demand management, participation in power market operation and planning has been covered in the Western hemisphere. However, the conventional grid structure in several parts of the Middle East and South East Asia still suffer from a frequent power outage, congestion in power flow, and interrupted power supply. To realize the full potential of EV Integration with smart Micro grids in Middle East and South East Asia, researchers and practitioners need to address these challenges and develop suitable conceptual and technological solutions for tackling them in order to run the Micro grid in grid-connected mode. Moreover, these include the development of Vehicle-to-Smart Micro grid (V2M) and Grid to Vehicle (M2V), Vehicle to home Nano-grid (V2H), V2X and X2V Energy management strategies and autonomic management.
The primary purpose of this book is to capture the state-of-the-art in Smart Micro grid Management with EV Integration, their applications, architectures, technologies, considering the social & geographical impact of the Middle East and South East Asia in EV connected Micro grid planning. The book also aims to identify potential research directions and technologies that will facilitate insight generation in various domains from smart home, smart cities, industry, business, and consumer applications. We expect the book to serve as a reference for a larger audience such as power system architects, practitioners, developers, new researchers, and graduate level students, especially for developing countries of the Middle East and South East Asia.
