Energy-based analysis and control of the grid: dealing with uncertainty and markets

Overview Provisioning energy from traditional sources has become increasingly difficult due to several reasons, including new geopolitical scenarios. Environmental concerns and climate changes have also stimulated the interest towards renewable sources of energy such as wind and solar energy. Although today’s technologies provide advanced devices for a more efficient exploitation of these resources, interfacing them to the grid still presents several challenges that demand for appropriate control strategies that guarantee stable operation. Any control strategy for future smart grids cannot disregard economical considerations that allow producers and consumers to fairly share utilities and costs associated with the generation and consumption of energy.

In this research, we develop a new approach for the modeling, analysis and control of smart grids based on energy functions.
