    Due to a century of gas-tank / gas-station legacy, most of the current focus on Electrical Vehicle (EV) charging has been with respect to public charging, range anxiety, charging speed, and grid impact. Unfortunately, this focus overlooks the existing grid structure that is readily available at little to no additional cost (the ubiquitous 120V outlet) and overlooks the convenience of charging-whil...

    The Smart Grid Initiative (SGI) encourages the integration of storage and peak-shaving technologies including plugin hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs). PHEV sales in the US are expected to significantly increase primarily due to their potential to lower fuel costs by reducing fossil fuel consumption and to lower emissions. The rising penetration rate of these vehicles may however cause problems to ... View full abstract»

    The degradation of sewage sludge in single stage and 2 phase anaerobic systems was investigated in bench-scale batch reactors. Average COD reduction efficiency in 2 phase system in this initial phase of the study was 4.5% (30 days HRT) and 3.3% (20 days HRT) higher compared to single stage system. Reducing the HRT from 30 days to 20 days had little influence in VS reduction in the two systems. The... View full abstract»

    Along with rapid economic growth, urban traffic has become a complicated worldwide issue, which synthesizes out-of-order jam, energy consumption and GHG emission. An autonomic traffic and energy model is proposed based on the micro behavior simulation, in which an information decision factor is introduced. Thus the travel patterns and choice of the road trip have been controlled and optimized dyna... View full abstract»

    Stress stemming from increasing energy demands in residential areas can cause electric overloads, which will either destroy grid components or shorten the equipment's life expectancy. To overcome this problem, residential load management has become essential. In this paper, we propose a comfort based smart load management algorithm to efficiently manage random and uncontrolled residential loads. U... View full abstract»

    Nowadays, to indicate the quality of Thailand's existing power system including the newly-installed distributed renewable energy sources, a number of pricy power quality analyzers are being used in most areas. This article proposes an alternative of such equipment called a smart recording power analyzer prototype (SRPA) using a combination of LabVIEW™ algorithms and a low-cost data acquisit...

    Smart meter is one of the most important devices used in the smart grid (SG). The smart meter is an advanced energy meter that obtains information from the end users' load devices and measures the energy consumption of the consumers and then provides added information to the utility company and/or system operator. Several sensors and control devices, supported by dedicated communication infrastruc... View full abstract»

    A critical piece of the Smart Grid (SG) infrastructure is the supporting Communication Networks that facilitate data gathering, monitoring and control of the electric grid. Over the years, electric utilities built robust communication networks for their transmission and distribution systems, but stopped short of the “last mile” connections to the end user. A primary goal of the SG is... View full abstract»

    Energy consumption by the US Army is becoming an increasingly important issue. The cost of providing fuel to Army outposts in deployed environments is particularly expensive due to numerous precautions required to defend fuel convoys from enemy attacks. This work is part of the Army's Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL) efforts to reduce the amount of energy consumed by temporary b... View full abstract»
