In this paper, a static non-cooperative game formulation of the problem of distributed charging in electrical vehicle (EV) networks is proposed. This formulation allows one to model the interaction between several EV which are connected to a common residential distribution transformer. Each EV aims at choosing the time at which it starts charging its(More)
The main contribution of this work is twofold. First, we apply, for the first time, a framework borrowed from economics to a problem in the smart grid namely, the design of signaling schemes between a consumer and an electricity aggregator when these have non-aligned objectives. The consumer's objective is to meet its need in terms of power and send a(More)
In smart grids, the expected increase of electrical vehicle (EV) penetration will impose sizeable charging load, which can critically overburden the distribution network (DN) if the delivered power is non-pragmatically aggregated and induce significant impacts on various important existing grid assets. Among them, the residential distribution transformer is(More)
This paper investigates a decentralized optimization methodology to coordinate Electric Vehicles (EV) charging in order to contribute to the voltage control on a residential electrical distribution feeder. This aims to maintain the voltage level in function of the EV’s power injection using the sensitivity matrix approach. The decentralized optimization is(More)
In this paper, we use a recent information theoretical result to develop a general framework for finding optimal power control policies in the case of interference channels. The aforementioned result characterizes the achievable payoffs for an N-Agent (transmitters in our application) coordination problem with a certain information structure. We then(More)
The main objective of this paper is to design electric vehicle (EV) charging policies which minimize the impact of charging on the electricity distribution network (DN). More precisely, the considered cost function results from a linear combination of two parts: a cost with memory and a memoryless cost. In this paper, the first component is identified to be(More)
An important scenario for smart grids which encompass distributed electrical networks is given by the simultaneous presence of aggregators and individual consumers. In this work, an aggregator is seen as an entity (a coalition) which is able to manage jointly the energy demand of a large group of consumers or users. More precisely, the demand consists in(More)
