VenueLeipzig, Germany Germany



Topics/Call fo Papers

Our energy supply infrastructure is in the middle of a transition from a conventional star-like energy supply topology with a manageable number of well-structured power plants towards a grid topology with a myriad of different generation units that are geographically widely distributed. Additionally, the increasing integration of volatile and intermittent renewable energy resources brings massive challenges to grid operations and its composition with respect to power system commitment, dispatching and reserve requirements.
The fact that renewable energy generation units will increase their share in the overall energy production, calls for technologies to be developed in the next decades to deal with the transition of the energy supply system and the distribution of renewable energy generation units. This includes technologies to integrate, handle and intelligently manage energy storage systems, grid load peak-shaving, smart supply system components, more efficient and intelligent coupling of heating with electrical power, heat storage, intelligent load shifting and balancing, to name only a few here.
All these have in common that the future power grid has to be intelligent, where generation and consumption units communicate or even negotiate their offer or their demand of energy through an ‘internet of energy’. Thus, to efficiently design and develop those distributed energy management systems is one of the key challenges to be solved to transform the energy supply system, addressing distributed coordination, as well as different forms of energy like electricity, heat, natural gas and other.
Information and communication technologies are the key enablers of such envisioned systems, where especially the agent-paradigm provides an excellent modelling approach for the distributed character of energy systems. Although significant efforts and investments have already been allocated into the development of smart grids, there are, however, still significant research challenges to be addressed before the promised efficiencies or visions can be realised. This includes distributed, collaborative, autonomous and intelligent software solutions for simulation, monitoring, control and optimization of smart energy networks and interactions between them.
The SEN-MAS'19 Workshop aims at providing a forum for presenting and discussing recent advances and experiences in building and using multi-agent systems for modelling, simulation and management of smart energy networks. In particular, it includes (but is not limited to) the following topics of interest:
Experiences of Smart Grid implementations by using MAS
Applications of Smart Grid technologies
Distributed energy management of distributed generation and storage based on MAS
Examples of design patterns for MAS in distributed energy management systems
Microgrids, Islands Power Systems
