A New Risk-based Decentralized Model for Peer-to-Peer Energy Trading Among Smart Homes

Niloofar Mohammadi; Masoud Rashidinejad; Amir Abdollahi; Peyman Afzali

Volume 5, Issue 3 , October 2022, Pages 231-240

  Smart homes could have a significant impact on supplying the demand of both household consumers and smart grid. The household consumers can trade energy via peer-to-peer (P2P) energy trading to reduce their cost. In other words, each of them can participate in the smart grid as a prosumer that can both ...  Read More

A Robust Primary Frequency Response Constrained Unit Commitment considering Uncertain Frequency Support of Units

Mehrdad Manshor; Mahmood Joorabian; Afshin Lashkarara

Volume 5, Issue 3 , October 2022, Pages 241-249

  Power management in microgrids is a major challenge due to its low total inertia and capacity. The lower the microgrid generation capacity is, the higher the share of each generation unit in total power will be, and the higher the frequency deviation in less time will be when an outage occurs. So, preventive ...  Read More
