Abstract

Smart energy grid (SEG) infrastructures will provide efficient bidirectional energy supply with reduced greenhouse gas emissions. SEG includes distributed energy generation (DEG) capabilities, such as thermal, electricity, and gas, with smart components, which will allow scalable architecture as integrated with interconnected micro energy grids (MEGs). In order to facilitate the design and implementation of such dynamic superstructures with local and global performance optimization, it is important to provide an intelligent modeling and simulation environment with distributed decision-making capabilities to manage data gathering ...
