  • Towards holistic charging management for urban electric taxi via a hybrid deployment of battery charging and swap stations

    X Zhang, L Peng, Y Cao, S Liu, H Zhou, L Huang

    © 2020 Elsevier Ltd While previous studies focused on managing charging demand for private electric vehicles (EVs), we investigate ways of supporting the upgrade of an entire public urban electric taxi (ET) system. Concerning the coexistence of plugin charging stations (CSs) and battery swap stations (BSSs) in practice, it thus requires further efforts to design a holistic charging management especially for ETs. By jointly considering the combination of plug-in charging and battery swapping, a hybrid charging management framework is proposed in this paper. The proposed scheme is capable of guiding ETs to appropriate stations with time-varying requirements depending on how emergent the demand will be. Through the selection of battery charging/swap, the optimization goal is to reduce the trip delay of ET. Results under a Helsinki city scenario with realistic ETs and charging stations show the effectiveness of our enabling technology, in terms of minimized drivers’ trip duration, as well as charging performance gains at the ET and station sides.

  • Application of gradient descent algorithms based on geodesic distances

    X Duan, H Sun, L Peng

    SCIENCE CHINA Information Sciences 63 (5), 152201 (Science China Information Sciences)  63 ( 5 )  2020.05

     View Summary

    © 2020, Science China Press and Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany, part of Springer Nature. In this paper, the Riemannian gradient algorithm and the natural gradient algorithm are applied to solve descent direction problems on the manifold of positive definite Hermitian matrices, where the geodesic distance is considered as the objective function. The first proposed problem is the control for positive definite Hermitian matrix systems whose outputs only depend on their inputs. The geodesic distance is adopted as the difference of the output matrix and the target matrix. The controller to adjust the input is obtained such that the output matrix is as close as possible to the target matrix. We show the trajectory of the control input on the manifold using the Riemannian gradient algorithm. The second application is to compute the Karcher mean of a finite set of given Toeplitz positive definite Hermitian matrices, which is defined as the minimizer of the sum of geodesic distances. To obtain more efficient iterative algorithm than traditional ones, a natural gradient algorithm is proposed to compute the Karcher mean. Illustrative simulations are provided to show the computational behavior of the proposed algorithms.

  • An assignment model with local constraints: Competitive equilibrium and ascending auction

    L Pan, L Peng, Y Zhou

    Economics Letters (Economics Letters)  188 2020.03

    Research paper (scientific journal), Joint Work, Accepted,  ISSN  01651765

     View Summary

    © 2019 Elsevier B.V. We consider an assignment model where each agent has unit-demand quasi-linear preferences and may face some local constraint, i.e., her possible assignment is restricted to a subset of items. Our model takes the assignment models without and with outside options, e.g., Andersson (2007) and Andersson et al. (2013), as special cases. We show that local constraints may lead to the non-existence of competitive equilibrium (CE), and provide a sufficient and necessary condition that ensures its existence. We establish the lattice of CE prices. Besides, an ascending auction is proposed, either finding a CE or validating its non-existence in finitely many steps. It generalizes Andersson et al. (2013)’s auction by adjusting increments stepwise.

  • Discrete Crum’s theorems and lattice KdV-type equations

    C Zhang, L Peng, D Zhang

    Theoretical and Mathematical Physics 202 (2), 165-182 (Theoretical and Mathematical Physics(Russian Federation))  202 ( 2 ) 165 - 182 2020.02

    Research paper (scientific journal), Joint Work, Accepted,  ISSN  00405779

     View Summary

    © 2020, Pleiades Publishing, Ltd. We develop Darboux transformations (DTs) and their associated Crum’s formulas for two Schrödinger-type difference equations that are themselves discretized versions of the spectral problems of the KdV and modified KdV equations. With DTs viewed as a discretization process, classes of semidiscrete and fully discrete KdV-type systems, including the lattice versions of the potential KdV, potential modified KdV, and Schwarzian KdV equations, arise as the consistency condition for the differential/difference spectral problems and their DTs. The integrability of the underlying lattice models, such as Lax pairs, multidimensional consistency, τ-functions, and soliton solutions, can be easily obtained by directly applying the discrete Crum’s formulas.
