Establishing clean or renewable energy sources involves the problem of adequate management for the networked power sources, in particular since producers are at the same time also consumers, and vice versa. We describe the first phases of the joint R&D project DEZENT between the School of Computer Science and the College of Electrical Engineering at the(More)
In the DEZENT 1 project we had established a distributed base model for negotiating electric power from widely distributed (renewable) power sources on multiple levels in succession. Negotiation strategies would be intelligently adjusted by the agents, through (distributed) Reinforcement Learning procedures. The distribution of the negotiated power(More)
For regenerative electric power the traditional top- down and long-term power management is obsolete, due to the wide dispersion and high unpredictability of wind and solar based power facilities. In the R&D DEZENT1 project we developed a multi-level bottom- up solution where autonomous software agents negotiate available energy quantities and needs on(More)
This paper presents a technical vision for future individual traffic. It deals with two different objectives: passenger cars or motorcycles as battery-driven electric vehicles (EVs) and traffic congestion avoidance. On the technical background of our own work we will explain how power supply for recharging the batteries will have to be organized in a(More)
—A trend is emerging towards the activation of distribution networks, which have only been passive until now. The main purpose is to use the existing infrastructure more efficiently. Due to the vast number of low and medium voltage networks this can only be achieved with autonomous decentralized grid monitoring and usage management systems. The most(More)
