SUMMARY OF THE RESEARCH PROPOSAL
The aim is to develop decision-making tools for the management of the electric vehicle ecosystem. The first step is to develop efficient and robust machine learning models for predicting the energy consumption of electric vehicles in different scenarios and taking onto account a variety of endogenous and exogenous variables (traffic, weather, driving behavior, etc.). Then, using energy consumption models, methods to optimize the routing of vehicles to charging stations will be developed. Further, energy management and scheduling algorithms at grid-tied charging stations will be developed in different scenarios (with/without renewable energy sources, with/without storage capability). The research methodology is based on combinatorial optimization and machine learning. The approach will be tested using real electric vehicles and a real PV-backed charging station.
