The aim of this research project is to leverage an emerging framework for handling problems of decision making under uncertainty, called distributionally robust optimization (DRO), to address the problem of coordinated shared autonomous electric vehicles (SAEV) and power grid charging scheduling.
The objective of the internship is to work on this problem starting from an existing literature review on the topic of coordinated SAEV and power grid charging schedule, developing the relevant model within the DRO framework and use it to arrive at useful insights to stakeholders and policymakers regarding the optimal coordination between the SAEV and power grid in terms of charging schedule. In particular, the candidate is expected to:
1. Complete the relevant state-of-the-art on the coordinated SAEV and power grid optimal charging scheduling, if needed.
2. Conceptualize the proper uncertainty / ambiguity sets to handle the relevant uncertain parameters within the DRO framework.
3. Integrate the uncertainty / ambiguity sets into the optimization problem and derive a solvable and scalable tractable form.
4. If the problem is computationally challenging to scale for large sized instances, work on developing a proper heuristic approach to solve the problem and validate the quality of its solution.
