From: Peak load minimization of an e-bus depot: impacts of user-set conditions in optimization algorithms

Symbol Range Unit Description
atDepoti,t 0/1 True if bus i is at depot at time t. Calculated using the arrival time and departure time of the bus from the depot. Based on the time granularity of the optimization, the arrival time is rounded up and the departure time is rounded down.
SOCArr,i [5,100] % The state of charge of the battery at arrival, known for each bus from its schedule.
SOCDep,i 100 % The desired SOC at departure.
ΔSOCi [0,100] % Percentage change in SOC of each bus i using the fixed charging rate in kW and given battery capacity (kWh) in a single time interval t.
