Title: Proliferation of Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles in Coordinated Operations of Hydrogen-Integrated Urban Transportation and Renewable Energy-based Power Distribution Networks

Abstract: Hydrogen has been advocated globally as a promising energy carrier to achieve low-carbon economy. The integration of urban transportation network (UTN) and renewable energy-based power distribution network (PDN) can produce and deliver a sufficient level of hydrogen to refueling station to promote and enhance the quest for the proliferation of electric vehicles. In this presentation, we discuss the essence of hydrogen energy supply for mobility and other industrial applications. We also introduce hydrogen refueling service fee (HRSF) as a scheduling strategy to guide hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (HFCEVs) in their selection of hydrogen refueling stations. The optimal HRSF-based coordinated operation model would minimize UTN travel and PDN operation costs. It would also reduce carbon emission, while considering nodal carbon restrictions and uncertainties of renewable and distributed generators, and origin-destination traffic demand and constraints. The proposed model is solved by the decentralized alternative direction method of multipliers (ADMM) algorithm and verified on the hydrogen-integrated UTN and PDN in Sioux Falls. Numerical results demonstrate that popularizing HFCEVs contributes to emission reduction and the HRSF-based coordinated operation strategy is effective in reducing the overall emissions, promoting renewable energy accommodation, and improving the holistic operation efficiency of the hydrogen-integrated UTN and PDN.

Bio: Dr. Mohammad Shahidehpour is a University Distinguished Professor, Bodine Chair Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Director of the Robert W. Galvin Center for Electricity Innovation at Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT). He has over 40 years of experience with power system operation, planning, and control and has completed several major projects for the electric energy sector. His project on Perfect Power Systems has converted the entire IIT Campus to an islandable microgrid. Dr. Shahidehpour was the recipient of several technical awards including of the IEEE Burke Hayes Award for his research on hydrokinetics, IEEE/PES Outstanding Power Engineering Educator Award, IEEE/PES Ramakumar Family Renewable Energy Excellence Award, IEEE/PES Douglas M. Staszesky Distribution Automation Award, and the Edison Electric Institute’s Power Engineering Educator Award. He has co-authored 6 books and over 800 technical papers on electric power system operation and planning, and served as the founding Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid.  Dr. Shahidehpour is the recipient of the 2009 honorary doctorate from the Polytechnic University of Bucharest.  He is a Fellow of IEEE, Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI), and an elected member of the US National Academy of Engineering (NAE). He is also listed as a highly cited researcher on the Web of Science (ranked in the top 1% by citations demonstrating significant influence among his peers).
