    Speaker: Dr. Nanpeng Yu, UC Riverside

    Talk Title: Enabling Smart Energy Communities with Proactive Demand Participation and Distribution System Operator Market

    Series: CommNetS

    Abstract: This talk focuses on proactive demand participation and distribution system market design. An innovative customer interaction scheme called proactive demand participation is developed. Under the proactive demand participation framework, an intelligent energy scheduling agent take initiative to convert control models for flexible loads and customer preferences into price sensitive demand bids. This new scheme allows customers to actively express and communicate their electricity consumption preferences to the distribution system/market operators and participate in the wholesale market dispatch and price formation process. A distribution system market design, a three-phase iterative direct current optimal power flow algorithm with fictitious nodal demand and three-phase LMP decomposition method will be presented.
