Robust optimization of a micro-grid

Director: Sophie DEMASSEY
 

How can we determine the size of electricity facilities, including different sources and energy storage components, so as to keep investment and operation costs to a minimum over a 20-year lifespan, and given the uncertainties of how demand and the production of intermittent sources will evolve over that period? To answer this complex problem, Aurélien HAVEL, a graduate of the OSE 2015 program, set up a generic solution of robust optimization, based on the Langrangian relaxation of a linear program into whole numbers, integrated into a comprehensive web service including the specification of upstream instances and the visualization of solutions calculated downstream. This research led to a CIFRE doctoral thesis in partnership with SNCF.
