Heuristic Algorithm for Coordinating Smart Houses in MicroGrid
This work presents a framework for efficiently managing the energy needs of a set of houses connected in a micro-grid configuration. The micro-grid consists of houses and local renewable plants, each seen as independent agents with their specific goals. In particular houses have the option to buy energy from the national grid or from the local renewable plants. We discuss a practical heuristic that leads to energy allocation schedules that are cost-effective for the individual houses and profitable for the local plants. We present experiments describing the benefits of our proposal. The results illustrate that houses and micro plants can make considerable saving when they work in micro grid compared with working alone.[Full Paper]
