Creating Standard Load Profiles in Residential and Commercial Sectors in Germany for 2016, 2025 and 2040

Standard load profiles (SLPs) are used to calculate the natural gas demand of non-daily metered customers based on temperature forecasts. The most recent version of natural gas SLPs in Germany was published by the Federal Association of Energy and Water in June 2015. With the concept SigLinDE, a linearization of the old SLPs was carried … Read more

On the global convergence of an SLP-filter algorithm

A mechanism for proving global convergence infilter-type methods for nonlinear programming is described. Such methods are characterized by their use of the dominance concept of multi objective optimization, instead of a penalty parameter whose adjustment can be problematic. The main point of interest is to demonstrate how convergence for NLP can be induced without forcing … Read more
