Design Optimization of Renewable Energy Systems Using Advanced Optimization Algorithms Book Excerpt:

This book describes applications of Jaya and Rao algorithms on real case studies concerning different renewable energy sources. In the last few decades, researchers have focused on renewable energy resources like solar energy, bio-energy, wave energy, ocean thermal energy, tidal energy, geothermal energy, and wind energy. This has resulted in the development of new techniques and tools that could harvest energy from renewable energy sources. Many researchers and scientists have focused on developing and optimizing the energy systems to extract and utilize renewable energy more efficiently. In this book, recently developed Jaya and Rao (Rao-1, Rao-2, and Rao-3) algorithms are introduced for single- and multi-objective optimization of selected renewable energy systems. The results of applications of the different versions of Jaya and Rao algorithms are compared with the other optimization techniques like GA, NSGA-II, PSO, MOPSO, ABC, etc., and the performance of the Jaya and Rao algorithms is highlighted compared to other optimization algorithms in the case of renewable energy systems. The book also includes the validation of different versions of the Jaya and Rao algorithms through the application to complex single- and multi-objective unconstrained benchmark functions. The algorithms and computer codes of different version of Jaya and Rao algorithms are included in the book that will be very much useful to readers in industry and academic research.

Energy systems are transiting from conventional energy systems to modernized and smart energy systems. This Special Issue covers new advances in the emerging technologies for modern energy systems from both technical and management perspectives. In modern energy systems, an integrated and systematic view of different energy systems, from local energy systems and islands to national and multi-national energy hubs, is important. From the customer perspective, a modern energy system is required to have more intelligent appliances and smart customer services. In addition, customers require the provision of more useful information and control options. Another challenge for the energy systems of the future is the increased penetration of renewable energy sources. Hence, new operation and planning tools are required for hosting renewable energy sources as much as possible.

Optimization Based Energy Management for Multi energy Maritime Grids Book Excerpt:

This open access book discusses the energy management for the multi-energy maritime grid, which is the local energy network installed in harbors, ports, ships, ferries, or vessels. The grid consists of generation, storage, and critical loads. It operates either in grid-connected or in islanding modes, under the constraints of both power system and transportation system. With full electrification, the future maritime grids, such as all-electric ships and seaport microgrids, will become “maritime multi-energy system” with the involvement of multiple energy, i.e., electrical power, fossil fuel, and heating/cooling power. With various practical cases, this book provides a cross-disciplinary view of the green and sustainable shipping via the energy management of maritime grids. In this book, the concepts and definitions of the multi-energy maritime grids are given after a comprehensive literature survey, and then the global and regional energy efficiency policies for the maritime transportation are illustrated. After that, it presents energy management methods under different scenarios for all-electric ships and electrified ports. At last, the future research roadmap are overviewed. The book is intended for graduate students, researchers, and professionals who are interested in the energy management of maritime transportation.
