A mathematical model of nanoparticulate mixed oxide pseudocapacitors; Part II: The effects of intrinsic factors, Article Journal of Solid State Electrochemistry ; Volume 15, Issue 1 , 2011 , Pages 115-123 ; 14328488 (ISSN) ; Gobal, F ; Sharif University of Technology
Our previously reported mathematical model for a mixed oxide nanoparticulate-based supercapacitor containing RuO2·xH2O and MO2·yH2O (M being another suitable transition metal) was analyzed. Both double-layer and faradaic processes responsible for charge/discharge were considered. The effects of the intrinsic factors, unit cell length, state of charge, and the exchange current densities of the electrochemical processes of the constituents on the performance of the model supercapacitor were clarified. Compensation effects where each constituent compensates the shortcomings of the other at specific conditions of discharge are analyzed in the light of the model
Decentralized method for load sharing and power management in a hybrid single/three-phase-islanded microgrid consisting of hybrid source PV/battery units, Article IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics ; Volume 32, Issue 8 , 2017 , Pages 6135-6144 ; 08858993 (ISSN) ; Oraee, H ; Guerrero, J. M ; Sharif University of Technology
This paper proposes a new decentralized power management and load sharing method for a photovoltaic (PV)-based, hybrid single/three-phase-islanded microgrid consisting of various PV units, battery units, and hybrid PV/battery units. The proposed method is not limited to the systems with separate PV and battery units, and power flow among different phases is performed automatically through three-phase units. The proposed method takes into account the available PV power and battery conditions of the units to share the load among them. To cover all possible conditions of the microgrid, the operation of each unit is divided into five states in single-phase units and seven states in three-phase...

This paper proposes a new decentralized power management and load sharing method for a photovoltaic based islanded microgrid consisting of various photovoltaic (PV) units, battery units and hybrid PV/battery units. Unlike the previous methods in the literature, there is no need to communication among the units and the proposed method is not limited to the systems with separate PV and battery units or systems with only one hybrid unit. The proposed method takes into account the available PV power and battery conditions of the units to share the load among them.

In the recent years, increasing concerns about the environmental issues necessitatecientists and industrial people to introduce clean and zero emissions vehicles to the global market. Relying on this acute demand,Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) are knownas one potential solution to lessen the negative effects of transportation industry on ecological systems.HEVs combine an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) with an Electric Motor/Generator (EMG) and an Energy Storage System (ESS) to produce a fuel efficient and low or zero pollutant powertrain. Increasing the number of components in the powertrain requires a sophisticated strategy to control all drive-line components suitably. Surely, the best...

To ensure stable and optimal operation of lithium-ion batteries (LIBs), it is necessary to use a management system for online monitoring and accurate estimation of battery State of Charge (SOC). Due to LIBs' complex dynamics and effective factors such as temperature and side reactions, battery SOC estimation has become one of the greatest challenges for experts in the field. In this research, an adaptive sliding mode observer has been designed and evaluated for a cylindrical lithium manganese oxide battery with a capacity of 1258 mAh. At first, rigorous simulation of lithium-ion battery has been performed by utilizing the P2D electrochemical as well as thermal and aging model to be the main...
Day-ahead resource scheduling in distribution networks with presence of electric vehicles and distributed generation units, Article Electric Power Components and Systems ; Volume 47, Issue 16-17 , 2019 , Pages 1450-1463 ; 15325008 (ISSN) ; Ghazi, R ; Moeini Aghtaie, M ; Sharif University of Technology

In this paper a new framework for scheduling of available resources in the distribution networks is developed. In this respect attempts are focused on interactions between charging/discharging profiles of electric vehicles (EVs) and output power of distributed generation units. To reach this goal, the proposed framework is designed as a two-stage optimization procedure. In the first stage, the charging/discharging schedules of EVs are extracted running a linear programing optimization problem taking into account the EV users' constraints and requirements. The usage profiles of the DG units, strategy of buying electricity from the market and also the final charging/discharging patterns of the...
Ph.D. Dissertation Sharif University of Technology ; Oraee, Hashem
Due to environmental concerns and continuous decrease in the price, photovoltaic (PV) generations have been increasing in the recent years. PV units can operate in grid-connected or islanded modes. In grid-connected mode, the PV unit delivers its generated power to the grid; on the other hand, in islanded mode, it supplies the local loads. In this research, a new decentralized power management and load sharing method for a photovoltaic based islanded microgrid consisting of various PV units, battery units and hybrid PV/battery units is proposed. Unlike the previous methods in the literature, there is no need to communication among the units and the proposed method is not limited to the...
Estimation of the kinetic parameters of processes at the negative plate of lead-acid batteries by impedance studies, Article Journal of Power Sources ; Volume 195, Issue 17 , September , 2010 , Pages 5789-5793 ; 03787753 (ISSN) ; Hejabi, M ; Gobal, F ; Sharif University of Technology
Impedance characteristics of the negative electrode of lead-acid battery were derived on the basis of fundamental interfacial processes occurring at the electrode. The solution of the governing equations was presented in terms of a simple equivalent circuit consisting of resistive and capacitive loops in which charge transfer and sulfate layer formation and also mass transfer (Warburg) elements are considered. The kinetic parameters were deduced by fitting the theoretically derived impedance to the experimental data. Impedance at various States of Charge (SoC) was also examined

A risk-constrained decision support tool for EV aggregators participating in energy and frequency regulation markets, Article Electric Power Systems Research ; Volume 185 , August , 2020 ; Aris Lekvan, A ; Ehsan, M ; Sharif University of Technology
Elsevier Ltd 2020
The growing trend of electric vehicles (EVs) in recent years has led to the emergence of EV aggregators in electricity markets. Generally, the main goal of an EV aggregator is to buy electricity from the wholesale market in a cost-effective manner while satisfying the charging requirements of EV owners. Accordingly, this paper presents a decision support tool for EV aggregators which enables them to determine the optimal bidding strategy to effectively participate in the day-ahead and real-time energy, and frequency regulation markets. Indeed, the aggregator mainly obtains profit by selling energy during the high-price hours (via vehicle-to-grid (V2G) capability) and providing primary...
