Due to neoteric evolution in the urban transportation systems, more electric vehicles (EVs) are penetrating the market. One of the major challenges is allocating EVs to the optimal charging station (CS). In this seminar, I will talk about several combined optimization models to assign EVs to the optimal charging station based on the SDN communication framework in the smart city. The objective of this design is to allocate the EVs to the optimal CS while maximizing the trading energy and minimizing the total response time. Therefore, the traveling distance, charging (V2G), and discharging (G2V) energy trading, total response time starting from the request time ending with leaving charging station time, and energy price are considered in this design. Finally, I will discuss the simulation results to show the effectiveness of the combined models.
