A Cascading Chi-shapes based Decoder for Constraint-handling in Distributed Energy Management

Joerg Bremer, Sebastian Lehnhoff

Abstract

A steadily rising share of small, distributed, and volatile energy units like wind energy converters solar panels, co-generation plants, or similar assigns new tasks and challenges to the smart grid regarding operation and control. The growing complexity of the grid also imposes a growing complexity of constraints that restrict the validity of solutions for operation schedules, resource capacity utilization or grid compliance. Using surrogate models as an abstraction layer has recently become a promising approach for constructing algorithms independently from any knowledge about the actual device or operation restricting constraints. So called decoders as a special constraint handling technique allow for systematically generating feasible solutions directly from a learned surrogate model. Some decoder approaches based on support vector machines have already been implemented, but suffer from performance issues and a sensible parametrization. We propose a new type of decoder based on a cascade of χ-shapes to overcome these problems. The applicability is demonstrated with a simulation study using different types of flexible energy units.
