TT02 AI-driven Decarbonization for Power Systems (Part I)

Sunday, 25 June 2023
08:30 - 10:30



The ongoing decarbonization of power systems is altering the fundamental structure of system planning and operation by increasing the penetration of renewable energy resources (RESs), while forecasting an increase in the asset utilization of high electrification of transportation and efficient heating facilities. To meet the carbon budgets, the pace of decarbonization in deregulated markets needs to be significantly accelerated. These transitions, however, present crucial techno-economic challenges. More flexibilities are required to balance the less predictable and controllable RESs. A large number of small-scale distributed energy resources (DERs) are located and operated in a distributed manner, which may increase the challenges of managing them. Furthermore, privacy concerns need to be addressed due to the massive amount of data communicated by the decentralized power systems. In this context, this tutorial will first overview various kinds of approaches for power system decarbonization, then introduce advanced artificial intelligence (AI) tools, and finally focus on the applications of peer-to-peer (P2P) energy trading and electric vehicles (EVs).
