Title: Distributed Energy Management for Networked Microgrids Using Online ADMM With Regret

Abstract

We propose a distributed algorithm for online energy management in networked microgrids with a high penetration of distributed energy resources (DERs). A high penetration of DERs introduces high uncertainty of power generation to the microgrids. In general, the state-of-the-art forecasting for non-dispatchable DERs such as solar energy is not sufficiently accurate, which results in inaccurate energy scheduling. To address the high uncertainty issue in the networked microgrids, we propose an online energy management based on the online alternating direction method of multipliers algorithm with the past power generation information from the DERs. The online algorithm provides less conservative schedule than the robust optimization-based approach. The effectiveness of the proposed algorithm is verified by various numerical examples.
