PhD opportunity: Create a platform to test smart grid operation mechanisms

Electric Car

This project aims to develop, test, and verify the impacts of local markets on the operation, profit and business model of the aggregator. To that end, the game theory will be used to form the interaction between prosumers, local market platform and the aggregator operation considering the potential of islanded operation as a business case for the aggregator. Applications open until filled.
