Abstract—The presence of distributed generators with DC output power and the advancement in power electronics devices have motivated system planners and grid operators to move towards integration of DC microgrids into conventional AC grid. In this paper, we address the optimal power flow (OPF) problem in AC-DC networks. The goal of the AC-DC OPF problem is(More)
In this paper, we focus on the problem of joint load scheduling and generation management to better match supply and demand. We formulate an optimization problem to jointly minimize the generation cost and discomfort cost of the users subject to the voltage and power balance equations for the equivalent circuit of the power system. The optimal power flow(More)
Objective: One of the problems in sports community is the use of energetic drugs by athletes. The purpose of present study was examining the prevalence of energetic drugs use and the role of perfectionism, sensation seeking and physical self-concept in discriminating bodybuilders with positive and negative attitude toward doping. Methodology: This study was(More)
Due to the proliferation of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), the peak load in the power grid is expected to increase in future. The peak load can be reduced by implementing appropriate load scheduling schemes using advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) and smart chargers. In this paper, we formulate the charging problem of PHEVs as a potential(More)
In smart grid, demand response is a viable approach to motivate users towards shifting the demand during the peak load periods. Each user can also benefit by reducing its total cost. In most of the existing studies, the demand response program is modeled as a one-shot game among myopic users, who aim to minimize their cost in one period of time. In this(More)
The uncertainties of the renewable generation units and the proliferation of price-responsive loads make it a challenge for independent system operators (ISOs) to manage the energy trading market in the future power systems. A centralized energy market is not practical for the ISOs due to the high computational burden and violating the privacy of different(More)
