The vehicle-to-grid (V2G) system enables energy flow from the electric vehicles (EVs) to the grid. The distributed power of the EVs can either be sold to the grid or be used to provide frequency regulation service when V2G is implemented. A V2G control algorithm is necessary to decide whether the EV should be charged, discharged, or provide frequency(More)
Energy management in microgrids is typically formulated as a non-linear optimization problem. Solving it in a centralized manner does not only require high computational capabilities at the microgrid central controller (MGCC) but may also infringe customer privacy. Existing distributed approaches, on the other hand, assume that all generations and loads are(More)
Demand response (DR) enables customers to adjust their electricity usage to balance supply and demand. Most previous works on DR consider the supply–demand matching in an abstract way without taking into account the underlying power distribution network and the associated power flow and system operational constraints. As a result, the schemes proposed by(More)
A microgrid can be characterized by its integration of distributed energy resources and controllable loads. Such integration brings unique challenges to the microgrid management and control which can be significantly different from conventional power systems. Therefore, a conventional energy management system (EMS) needs to be re-designed with consideration(More)
In this paper, we design real-time decentralized and distributed control schemes for Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems in energy efficient buildings. The control schemes balance user comfort and energy saving, and are implemented without measuring or predicting exogenous disturbances. Firstly, we introduce a thermal dynamic model of(More)
With rapid development of computer technology and wide use of mobile devices, the telecare medicine information system has become universal in the field of medical care. To protect patients’ privacy and medial data’s security, many authentication schemes for the telecare medicine information system have been proposed. Due to its better performance, chaotic(More)
PURPOSE To identify biochemical markers in men with idiopathic infertility and normal sperm counts. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN We obtained proteomic profiling proteins in human spermatozoa following successful or unsuccessful pregnancy via assisted reproductive technology (ART) using 6-plex tandem mass tag (TMT) isobaric mass spectrometry. Our study design(More)
As an improtant cryptographic scheme, signcryption scheme has been widely used in applications since it could provide both of signature and encryption. With the development of the certificateless public key cryptography (CLPKC), many certificatelss signcryption (CLSC) schemes using bilinear pairing hve been proposed. Comparated other operations, the(More)
