Abstract:Due to the ongoing energy transition and its associated trends, operation of the electricity grid is becoming more and more challenging. This is especially true for distribution grids where intermittent generation and increased demand coincide. In this thesis, energy management approaches for effective operation of the smart distribution grid are developed and compared. The energy management problem is first introduced in a general way, considering its main characteristics and developing a mathematical basis. The two main classes of energy management approaches are then represented by introducing a novel centralised model and a novel decentralised model. The fundamental mathematical features of the centralised and decentralised models are compared, focusing on the flow of information and availability of control. Furthermore, a case study is developed and tested to address the real-life performance of the two energy management approaches. In this case study, a dispatch problem in a day-ahead market is simulated using real-life data and realistic device specifications. The goal of the energy management approaches is to find a dispatch that follows a target demand profile in a grid feasible way while simultaneously being economic and sustainable.
