Abstract

Now the design of energy system requires needowners to play an active role by using advanced technical solutions to improve their responsiveness, process adaptability and empower end-users. Although need-owners via Demand Response (DR) has gain sufficient strategic improvement in energy management recently, there are still some fundamental impediments to achieve a trade-off between demand flexibility scheduling and dispatch. To find a solution to the challenge, the paper introduces the steps of an agile development process for energy systems, refers to a co-creation of solutions based on co-existing technologies and iterative development, where needowners requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between cross-functional intelligent agents. The proof-of-the-concept is investigated by agent-oriented simulation for a generic low-voltage network of the Netherlands, which encounters transformer congestion. Simulation results reveal a significant reduction in congestion over a year while confirming expected levels of performance.
