Two-stage stochastic programming model for routing multiple drones with fuel constraints

Uses of drones and unmanned vehicles (UAVs) in ground or aerial are increasing in both civil and military applications. This paper develops a two-stage stochastic optimization model with a recourse for a multiple drone-routing problem with fuel constraints under uncertainty for the travel between any pair of targets/refueling-sites/depot. We are given a set of n … Read more

A Stochastic Programming Approach for Electric Vehicle Charging Network Design

Advantages of electric vehicles (EV) include reduction of greenhouse gas and other emissions, energy security, and fuel economy. The societal benefits of large-scale adoption of EVs cannot be realized without adequate deployment of publicly accessible charging stations. We propose a two-stage stochastic programming model to determine the optimal network of charging stations for a community … Read more
