Distributed Optimal Vehicle Grid Integration Strategy with User Behavior Prediction

With the increasing of electric vehicle (EV) adoption in recent years, the impact of EV charging activities to the power grid becomes more and more significant. In this article, an optimal scheduling algorithm which combines smart EV charging and V2G gird service is developed to integrate EVs into power grid as distributed energy resources, with improved system cost performance. Specifically, an optimization problem is formulated and solved at each EV charging station according to control signal from aggregated control center and user charging behavior prediction by mean estimation and linear regression. The control center collects distributed optimization results and updates the control signal, periodically. The iteration continues until it converges to optimal scheduling. Experimental result shows this algorithm helps fill the valley and shave the peak in electric load profiles within a microgrid, while the energy demand of individual driver can be satisfied.

We study a stochastic primal-dual method for constrained optimization over Riemannian manifolds with bounded sectional curvature. We prove non-asymptotic convergence to the optimal objective value. More precisely, for the class of hyperbolic manifolds, we establish a convergence rate that is related to the sectional curvature lower bound. Read More


In this work, we study a minimal time problem for a Partial Differential Equation of transport type, that arises in crowd models. The control is a Lipschitz vector field localized on a fixed control set $\omega$. We provide a complete answer for the minimal time problem. Read More


We study a deep matrix factorization problem. It takes as input a matrix $X$ obtained by multiplying $K$ matrices (called factors). Each factor is obtained by applying a fixed linear operator to a short vector of parameters satisfying a model (for instance sparsity, grouped sparsity, non-negativity, constraints defining a convolution network\ldots).

A vital aspect in energy storage planning and operation is to accurately model its operational cost, which mainly comes from the battery cell degradation. Battery degradation can be viewed as a complex material fatigue process that based on stress cycles. Rainflow algorithm is a popular way for cycle identification in material fatigue process, and has been extensively used in battery degradation assessment. Read More


This paper builds on new results concerning the polytopic set of possible states of a linear discrete-time SISO system subject to bounded disturbances from measurements corrupted by bounded noise. We construct an algorithm which, for the special case of a plant with a lag, recursively updates these polytopic sets when new measurements arrive. In an example we use the algorithm to investigate how the complexity of the polytopes changes with time. Read More


Poor diet and nutrition in the United States has immense financial and health costs, and development of new tools for diet planning could help families better balance their financial and temporal constraints with the quality of their diet and meals. This paper formulates a novel model for dietary planning that incorporates two types of temporal constraints (i.e. Read More


Particle filters are a popular and flexible class of numerical algorithms to solve a large class of nonlinear filtering problems. However, standard particle filters with importance weights have been shown to require a sample size that increases exponentially with the dimension D of the state space in order to achieve a certain performance, which precludes their use in very high-dimensional filtering problems. Here, we focus on the dynamic aspect of this curse of dimensionality (COD) in continuous time filtering, which is caused by the degeneracy of importance weights over time. Read More


We introduce the Suggest-and-Improve framework for general nonconvex quadratically constrained quadratic programs (QCQPs). Using this framework, we generalize a number of known methods and provide heuristics to get approximate solutions to QCQPs for which no specialized methods are available. We also introduce an open-source Python package QCQP, which implements the heuristics discussed in the paper. Read More


Motivated by economic dispatch and linearly-constrained resource allocation problems, this paper proposes a novel Distributed Approx-Newton algorithm that approximates the standard Newton optimization method. A main property of this distributed algorithm is that it only requires agents to exchange constant-size communication messages. The convergence of this algorithm is discussed and rigorously analyzed.
