Cooperative Planning and Operation of Interconnected Microgrids

Innovative Breakthroughs: The team designed a fair cost-sharing scheme to split up total investment cost using the “Nash bargaining solution”, which incentivizes proactive participation of microgrids toward socially optimal planning of renewable generation. Such a cooperative planning method can save the total investment cost by 35.9%. 

Academic merits: Two papers published in the journal IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid [Paper 1] [Paper 2]
