Charline Stevanoni received her Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering from the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Mons (Belgium) in 2015. Since September 2015, she is pursuing a Ph.D. degree in the Electrical Power Engineering Unit. Her main research interest concerns industrial microgrids with the integration of renewable energy sources and storage systems.
Industrial microgrids connected to the distribution network contain decentralized generation, storage and loads, and involve various stakeholders: the Distribution System Operator (DSO), the industrial companies (which may be prosumers or not) and the Industrial Estate Operator (IEO). These stakeholders often have different and conflicting objectives. This research deals with the planning of an industrial microgrid under different management strategies, taking into account the point of view of all the actors. The planning procedure is formulated as a multi-agent and multi-objective problem, and Game theory is used to solve the problem. Ultimately, the proposed methodology for the long-term will give guidelines to the DSO, the industrial companies and the IEO in order to tailor an industrial estate to a microgrid connected to the distribution network. This research is conducted in collaboration with IDEA and the Engineering and Consulting office Decube Consult.
