Abstract

In this paper, we put forward a novel DER aggregation framework, encompassing a multiagent architecture and various types of mechanisms for the effective management and efficient integration of DERs in the Grid. One critical component of our architecture is the Local Flexibility Estimators (LFEs) agents, which are key for offloading the Aggregator from serious or resource-intensive responsibilities-such as addressing privacy concerns and predicting the accuracy of DER statements regarding their offered demand response services. The proposed aggregation framework allows the formation of efficient LFE cooperatives. Our experiments verify its effectiveness for incorporating heterogeneous DERs into the Grid in an efficient manner-showing that the use of appropriate mechanisms results in higher payments for participating LFEs.
