This paper presents the capabilities offered by MultiAgent System technology in the operation of a Microgrid. A Microgrid is a new type of power system, which is formed by the interconnection of small, modular generation to low voltage distribution systems. MicroGrids can be connected to the main power network or be operated autonomously, similar to power(More)
Radical changes in the energy system, at the lower network level, will require integration of smart houses in the smart grid in order to realize the full potential. Introduction of renewables, an increase of distributed generation, and the trend towards an all-electric infrastructure lead to an increase in complexity, system management effort and cost that(More)
Innovative technologies and concepts will emerge as we move towards a more dynamic, service-based, marketdriven infrastructure, where energy efficiency and savings can be facilitated by interactive distribution networks. A new generation of fully interactive Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) infrastructure has to be developed to support the(More)
This paper will present some basic aspects regarding the concept of Multi-Agent System (MAS). MAS is a new concept used in power systems and can provide solution in various applications like market participation or power system restoration. Furthermore a practical implementations will be presented and more specific the installation of Multi Agent based(More)
This paper presents the application of bilevel programming for analyzing competitive situations of hierarchical decision making between an Energy Services Provider representing several microgrids (MGs)—each one comprising controllable loads and dispatchable distributed generation units—and a large central production unit. The rules of the interaction(More)
The high heterogeneity in smart house infrastructures as well as in the smart grid poses several challenges when it comes into developing approaches for energy efficiency. Consequently, several monitoring and control approaches are underway, and although they share the common goal of optimizing energy usage, they are fundamentally different at design and(More)
Game theory is a branch of applied mathematics that is, most notably, used in economics as well as in engineering and other disciplines. Game theory attempts to mathematically capture behaviour in strategic situations, in which an individual’s success in making choices depends on the choices of others. The microgrid encompasses a portion of an electric(More)
The European project INTEGRAL aims to build and demonstrate an industry-quality reference solution for DER aggregation-level control and coordination, based on commonly available ICT components, standards, and platforms. To achieve this, the Integrated ICT-platform based Distributed Control (IIDC) is introduced. The project includes also three field test(More)
In this paper the contribution of the mass application of intelligent meters to the optimization of the grid operation is examined. The power system of the island of Crete is chosen: it constitutes the largest autonomous sub-system of Greece with a considerable penetration of renewable energy sources (RES) mainly in the form of wind farms. Various load(More)
