A Hierarchical Alternating Direction Method of Multipliers for Fully Distributed Unit Commitment

Abstract—This paper discusses a hierarchical alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM) approach for the unit commitment (UC) problem in a fully distributed manner. Decentralized unit commitment operation schemes have several advantages when compared with the traditional centralized management system for smart grid. Specifically, decentralized management is more flexible, less computationally intensive, and easier to implement … Read more
