ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING ON-LINE SEMINAR (Seminar #10) “Thailand EV Charging Infrastructure: Research on PEA-VOLTA”

We would like to invite students, faculty members, and interested people to participate in ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING ON-LINE SEMINAR (Seminar #10) “Thailand EV Charging Infrastructure: Research on PEA-VOLTA” on Friday, 7 April 2023 at 02:00 PM (Thailand Time) Prof. Surin Khomfoi Affiliation: King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (KMITL)

Research works on PEA-VOLTA including study of suitable electrical vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure, Demand Response (DR) function Battery fitness index and Energy management for a charging station are going to present in this talk.] The proposed technique is to prevent the electrical system within the rated power by controlling electric vehicle chargers loads to the electrical system. A power management method for limiting the charging current and charging time by using state of charge (SOC) as a priority point index is developed. The power management method is also developed as a calculation algorithm for determining the charging current limit rating for electric vehicle chargers. Also, developed battery fitness index by using charging data together with AI algorithm is also introduced. The simulation model is also developed for validating a DR management function of the electric vehicle charger according to Provincial Electricity Authority of Thailand (PEA) load characteristic data. The research results show that the developed techniques are promising research for all EV users and supporting Thailand EV policy in flagship 3 of 13th national economic and social development plan.

Surin Khomfoi (Senior Member, IEEE) received his B.E. and M.E. in Electrical Engineering from the King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (KMITL), Bangkok, Thailand in 1996 and 2000, respectively, and his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, in 2007. From 1996 to 1997, he was with the Engineering Division of the Telephone Organization of Thailand (TOT). Since December 1997, he has been a Lecturer with the Department of Electrical Engineering, KMITL, where he is currently a professor. His research interests include multilevel power converters, renewable energy applications, EV infrastructure, fault diagnosis, and especially, artificial intelligent-based techniques applied to power electronics and drive applications. Dr. Khomfoi is a member of the Eta Kappa Nu honor society. He was a recipient of academic scholarship awards, including a full academic scholarship for his B.E. studies from the TOT, and a full academic scholarship for his M.E. and Ph.D. studies from the Energy Policy and Planning Office (EPPO), Thailand.
