Due to much larger numbers of small generators it will be more complex to control the balance between supply and demand in future power systems. To deal with this complexity, autonomous power networks could be effective. Autonomous power networks are aggregations of producers and consumers on both physical and economical level and have the capability to control complex systems with simple rules. To demonstrate economic dispatch within an autonomous power network, this paper describes the setup of a model for matching supply and demand within control zones. Next, a method for distributed economic dispatch is incorporated in the model to show how allocation of generators can be executed in a decentralised way.
