Optimisation and Game Theory for the Future Grid and Electricity Markets

Power and Energy Society

The talk will start with a broad overview of recent developments in Australia’s power grid and National Electricity Market (NEM). Focusing on the Australian context, the impact of renewable distributed generation, closure of coal plants, and demand response schemes on NEM will be discussed using game-theoretic (Cournot) models. In addition, some earlier results on the impact of Electric Vehicles on distribution grid as well as ongoing research on various types of demand management methods will be briefly presented.

This event is hosted by the University of Manchester’s PES Student Branch and co-sponsored by the IEEE UK & Ireland Section PES Chapter.
