The plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), utilizing more battery power, is considered a next-generation hybrid electric vehicles with great promise of higher fuel economy. The charge-depletion mode is more appropriate for the power management of PHEV, i.e. the state of charge (SOC) is expected to drop to a low threshold when the vehicle reaches the(More)
The state-of-the-art advancement in wind turbine condition monitoring and fault diagnosis for the recent several years is reviewed. Since the existing surveys on wind turbine condition monitoring cover the literatures up to 2006, this review aims to report the most recent advances in the past three years, with primary focus on gearbox and bearing, rotor and(More)
Vehicle electrification is envisioned to be a significant component of the forthcoming smart grid. In this paper, a smart grid vision of the electric vehicles for the next 30 years and beyond is presented from six perspectives pertinent to intelligent transportation systems: 1) vehicles; 2) infrastructure; 3) travelers; 4) systems, operations, and(More)
Hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) have demonstrated their capability of improving the fuel economy and emission. The plug-in HEV (PHEV), utilizing more battery power, has become a more attractive upgrade of HEV. The charge-depletion mode is more appropriate for the power management of PHEV, i.e. the state of charge (SOC) is expected to drop to a low threshold(More)
Hybrid power system (HPS) is the power system consists of renewable energy sources and traditional energy sources used together to increase system efficiency and reduce operation cost. Energy management is one of the main issues in operating the HPS, which needs to be optimized with respect to the current and future change in generation, demand, and market(More)
The plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV), utilizing more battery power, has become a next-generation HEV with great promise of higher fuel economy. Global optimization charge-depletion power management would be desirable. This has so far been hampered due to the a priori nature of the trip information and the almost prohibitive computational cost of(More)
For simulation of centrifugal chiller system with differential algebraic equations (DAEs), consistent initial conditions are difficult to obtain due to the two-phase refrigerant cycle and the connections between several components. Existing rigorous initialization methods are generally not easy to apply and not suitable for the particular problem of(More)
The performance of a prototype standing wave thermoacoustic cooler is optimized using an extremum seeking control algorithm. A tunable Helmholtz resonator was developed for a thermoacoustic cooler to change the boundary condition of the standing wave tube. The volume of the resonator is adjusted by changing the location of a piston on a ball-screw assembly(More)
Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) are widely received as a promising means of green mobility by utilizing more battery power. Recently, we have proposed a scheme of two-scale spatial-domain dynamic programming (DP) as a nearly global optimization approach to trip based optimal power management for PHEV through the combination with traffic data and(More)
