Enerji ve Çevre Uygulama ve Araştırma Merkezi

Enerji ve Çevre Uygulama ve Araştırma Merkezi (EÇAM), enerji ihtiyacının temel sorunlardan biri olduğu ve kitlesel enerji tüketiminin önemli çevre sorunlarına sebep olduğu günümüzde bu konularda çözüm üretmek, üretilen çözümlere katkı sağlamak, bu çözümleri özendirmek ve teşvik etmek ve toplumu bilinçlendirmek amaçlarıyla kurulmuştur.

Bu amaçlar doğrultusunda EÇAM, Türkiye’deki ve dünyadaki enerji ve çevre konularının, ekonomik, ekolojik, sosyal, siyasi ve teknik açılardan araştırılması ve geliştirilen uygulamaların hayata geçirilmesi için gerekli akademik ortam ve kaynakları oluşturmuş, büyümekte ve gelişmekte olan bir yapı kurmuştur. Merkezimizde, bilimsel yöntemler kullanılarak, Türkiye’nin ve dünyanın enerji ve çevre sorunları üzerine uygulamalı araştırmalar yapılmakta, kamuoyunu aydınlatmak amacıyla paneller ve etkinlikler düzenlenmekte, yeni projeler geliştirilmektedir.

3. Towards Optimal Real-Time Demand Dispatch in Smart Grids - Seminar by: Dr. Sumit Paudyal

Abstract: With the implementation of Smart Grid technologies, such as sensors, smart meters, smart appliances, more than one-fourth of the US total electricity demand could be dispatchable [1, 2]. Coordinated demand dispatch of customers' loads provides benefits to the customers and the grid both.
 
A complete demand dispatch solution that benefits the customers and the grid involves a large scale optimization problem with underlying complex transmission and distribution grid models. A centralized approach to solve this problem is computationally involving in a practical sized grid with the consideration of comprehensive customer load models and the grid models that include discrete control variables. A practical way to solve this problem is to use hierarchical and distributed computing approaches, where information exchange occurs between the different levels in the hierarchy.
 
This talk presents hierarchical framework to i) optimally dispatch electric vehicle (EV)  loads in vehicle-to-grid interaction (V2G) and  ii) optimally dispatch commercial building loads  in building-to-grid (B2G) interaction. The case studies demonstrate the benefits of optimal demand dispatch of EV and building loads to the customers and distribution grid operation.
