Part of the Studies in Systems, Decision and Control book series (SSDC, volume 186)


There has been an emerging concern regarding the optimal operation of power and transportation networks. In this chapter, a big picture of emerging challenges in the interdependent power systems and electrified transportation networks is introduced. The introduced networks will collaborate together to achieve sustainability in terms of operating in a more intelligent and efficient manner, providing more realistic models of interdependent networks, and modernizing the conventional frameworks. Further, an example of electric vehicle routing problem is provided to identify various effective networks in the broader context of sustainable interdependent networks.

In the second volume of Sustainable Interdependent Networks book, we focus on the interdependencies of power and transportation networks, optimization methods to deal with the computational complexity of them, and their role in future smart cities. In a related context, we further investigate other influential networks, such as communication networks. The considerable scale of such networks, due to the large number of buses in smart power grids and the increasing number of electric vehicles in transportation networks, brings a wide variety of computational complexity and optimization challenges. Although the independent optimization of these networks leads to locally optimum operation points, there is an emerging need to move towards obtaining the globally optimum operation point while satisfying the constraints of each network.
