This paper presents a novel distributed double-consensus algorithm to solve the optimal energy management problem for multiple energy hubs interconnected with each other. The objective is achieved by establishing two interactive and paralleled consensus procedures modified by their corresponding feedback terms. Meanwhile, a novel projection operation method is proposed to map the infeasible values into the feasible operating region. The proposed algorithm can effectively handle the coupled variables problem existing in the objective function and constraint limits. Moreover, the optimality and convergence analysis are performed strictly under strong connectivity conditions only. Simulations performed on standard test cases are provided to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed distributed algorithm.
scite is a Brooklyn-based organization that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
