[HEMS 3] Assessment of the Benefits of Optimaly Scheduled Charging Electric Vehicules in a Residential Area
Simulations are used to measure the potential benefits that can be made from a demand-side management program in a residential area. Those are often made on a simple computer using MATLAB or another appropriate program. But once the simulations are done, the control unit must be implemented on a suited hardware. It is essential to develop the simulations knowing what will be the hardware used for the control unit and to develop both of them in parallel.
The aim of this master thesis is to design a micro controller suited for the scheduling of electric loads in a household and also a study of the possibility to design a centralized micro controller for the whole residential area.
*HEMS stands for Home Energy Management System. Topics related to HEMS will be presented on April 30th during lunch time (12:15-13:15) at the building L1 (in front of the RED lab).
