A Robust Optimization Approach to Network Control Using Local Information Exchange

Designing policies for a network of agents is typically done by formulating an optimization problem where each agent has access to state measurements of all the other agents in the network. Such policy designs with centralized information exchange results in optimization problems that are typically hard to solve, require to establish substantial communication links, and … Read more

The Power of Diversity: Data-Driven Robust Predictive Control for Energy Efficient Buildings and Districts

The cooperative energy management of aggregated buildings has recently received a great deal of interest due to substantial potential energy savings. These gains are mainly obtained in two ways: (i) Exploiting the load shifting capabilities of the cooperative buildings; (ii) Utilizing the expensive but energy efficient equipment that is commonly shared by the building community … Read more
