Decentralised real-time optimisation of power management in microgrids using multi-agent control.

Cruz Victorio, M. E. and Kazemtabrizi, B. and Shahbazi, M. (2019) 'Decentralised real-time optimisation of power management in microgrids using multi-agent control.', in 9th International Conference on Power and Energy Systems (ICPES), Perth, Australia, 2019. Piscataway, NJ: IEEE, pp. 1-6.


microgrid, implementing real-time generation cost minimisation. The MultiAgent control is tested against heuristic optimisation methods. It is shown that the control can reduce costs without the need of a central controller and in times of the order of milliseconds, making online optimisation possible. A test microgrid and the primary control were simulated in an OPAL-RT while the secondary control developed in Java manages the system over TCP/IP.
