Multi-agent-based simulation II : third international workshop, MABS 2002, Bologna, Italy, July 2002 : revised papers by Jaime S Sichman( )

24 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents extended and revised versions of the papers presented at the Third International Workshop on Multi-Agent Based Simulation (MABS 2002), a workshop federated with the First International Joint Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems (AAMAS 2002), which was held in Bologna, Italy, in July, 2002. This workshop was the third in the MABS series. The earlier two were - ganized as workshops of the two most recent ICMAS conferences (ICMAS 1998, Paris, France and ICMAS 2000, Boston, USA). Revised versions of the papers presented at these workshops were published as volumes 1534 and 1979 in the Lecture Notes in Arti?cial Intelligence series. One aim of the workshop was to develop stronger links between those wo- ing in the social sciences and those involved with multi-agent systems. We are pleased to note that many important conferences in various disciplines such as geography, economics, ecology, sociology, and physics have hosted workshops on MABS-related topics and that many respected journals publish papers that - clude elements of MABS. But although MABS is gradually acquiring legitimacy in many disciplinary ?elds, much remains to be done to clarify the potential use of MABS in these disciplines. Researchers from these disciplines have di?erent points of view on issues such as time-frame, space, geographical scales, or- nizational levels, etc. Moreover, the interest in MABS goes beyond the scienti?c community, as MABS models have been developed and used interactively with other communities as well
Multi-agent-based simulation : second international workshop, MABS 2000, Boston, MA, USA, July : revised and additional papers by Scott J Moss( Book )

16 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is devoted to investigating and developing the synergy between software engineering for multi-agent systems and agent-based social simulation; it originates from the Second International Workshop on Multi-Agend-Based Simulation, MABS 2000, held in Boston, MA, USA in July 2000, in conjunction with ICAMS 2000. Besides the thoroughly revised full papers accepted for presentation at the workshop, two invited papers and an introductory survey by one of the volume editors have been added in order to round off the scope and achieve complete coverage of all relevant topics. The book competently surveys the state of the art in the area by offering topical sections on model design issues, applications, simulating social relations and processes, and formal approaches

A Hybrid Micro-Simulator for Determining the Effects of Governmental Control Policies on Transport Chains by Joint AAMAS Workshop on Multi-Agent and Multi-Agent-Based Simulation( )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A simulation-based tool is described which will be used to investigate how the actors in a transport chain are expected to act when different types of governmental control policies are applied, such as, fuel taxes, road tolls, vehicle taxes and requirements on vehicles. The simulator is composed of two layers, one layer simulating the physical activities taking place in the transport chain, e.g., production, storage, and transports of goods, and another layer simulating the different actors' decision-making processes. The decision layer is implemented by a multi-agent system where each agent corresponds to a particular actor and models the way it acts in different situations. The simulator will be used for analyzing the costs and environmental effects, and will in this way provide guidance in decision making regarding control policies. In addition, it will be possible for companies to use the simulator in order to determine cost-effective strategies given different (future) scenarios

Combined heat & power generation using smart heat grid by International Conference on Applied Energy (ICAE)( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Combined heat and power (CHP) generation is often used when building new district heating production. CHP makes it possible to simultaneously produce electricity and heat, thus maximizing the energy efficiency of the primary fuel. The heat is used in the connected district heating system while the electricity is sold on the local power market. In a CHP plant it is not possible to separate the physical process of producing heat and electricity, which may cause suboptimal behaviour when high spot prices for power do not coincide with high heat load demand. This paper presents the design and implementation of a system which makes it possible to control the heat load demand in a district heating network in order to optimize the CHP production. By using artificial intelligence technology in order to automate the run‐time coordination of the thermal inertia in a large amount of buildings, it is possible to achieve the same operational benefits as using a large storage tank, albeit at a substantially less investment and operational cost. The system continuously considers the climate in each participating building in order to dynamically ensure that only the best suited buildings at any given time are actively participating in load control. Based on the dynamic indoor climate in each individual building the system automatically controls and coordinates the charging and discharging of the buildings thermal buffer without affecting the quality of service. This paper describes the overall function of the system and presents an algorithm for coordinating the thermal buffer of a large amount of buildings in relation to heat load demand and spot price projections. Operational data from a small district heating system in Sweden is used in order to evaluate the financial and environmental impact of using this technology. The results show substantial benefits of performing such load control during times of high spot price volatility

Smart Heat Grid on an Intraday Power Market by Third workshop on Agent Technology in Energy Systems (ATES)( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

District heating systems (DHS) is in many countries an important Agent-based industrial applications, Smart Heat Grid, Combined part of the heating infrastructure, especially in and around urban Heat and Power areas. Combined heat and power (CHP) production makes it possible to producer heat while simultaneously producing power. This combination help maximize the energy efficiency in production, often reaching an 80-90% utilization level of the primary fuel, compared to around 30-50% in a traditional power plant. The heat produced in the CHP plant is used to heat the adjacent DHS, while the power is transferred and sold on the power market. The work presented in this paper relates to the Nord Pool Spot power market, which is the leading power market in Europe and one of the largest in the world. On Nord Pool Spot power is bought and sold based on hourly spot prices, facilitated by the primary day-ahead market and the supplementary balancing intraday market. Since it isn’t possible to separate the physical process of producing heat and power in a CHP production facility, the energy company will want to synchronize high heat load production with high spot prices for power whenever possible. This can be done by using large storage tanks where heat is buffered during hours with high spot prices, while then distributedto the DHS as the heat load demand increases. However, such storage tanks are expensive to build and maintain, and they have limited operational dynamics. An alternative is to use the actual buildings connected to the DHS, in order to utilize their thermal inertia by the use of active load control. This paper presents a multi-agent system (MAS) designed to bridge the information gap between energy companies and building owners in order to enable the use of system-wide active load control in order to synchronization heat load and spot prices. The presented scheme provides a self-regulating market analogy in which agents act to allocate load control resources. Each participating building is assigned a consumer agent, while each production unit is represented by a production agent. These agents interact on the market analogy which is in turn supervised by a market agent. The work in this paper is focused on the intraday market although the underpinning synchronization scheme is suitable for the day-ahead market as well as the intraday market. The results show considerable gains for participating entities when applying the presented strategy to the often volatile intraday spot price market
Multi-Agent-Based Simulation for Analysis of Transport Policy and Infrastructure Measures by PRIMA 2011 workshop postproceeding( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this paper we elaborate on the usage of multi-agent-based simulation (MABS) for quantitative impact assessment of transport policy and infrastructure measures. We provide a general discussion on how to use MABS for freight transport analysis, focusing on issues related to input data management, validation and verification, calibration, output data analysis, and generalization of results. The discussion is built around an agent-based transport chain simulation tool called TAPAS (Transportation And Production Agent-based Simulator) and a simulation study concerning a transport chain around the Southern Baltic Sea
Distributed Monitoring and Control of Office Buildings by Embedded Agents by Paul Davidsson( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We describe a decentralized system consisting of a collection of software agents that monitor and control an office building. It uses the existing power lines for communication between the agents and the electrical devices of the building, such as sensors and actuators for lights and heating. The objectives are both energy saving and increasing customer satisfaction through value added services. Results of qualitative simulations and quantitative analysis based on thermodynamical modeling of an office building and its staff using four different approaches for controlling the building indicate that significant energy savings can result from using the agent-based approach. The evaluation also shows that customer satisfaction can be increased in most situations. The approach here presented makes it possible to control the trade-off between energy saving and customer satisfaction (and actually increase both, in comparison with current approaches)
Integrated Optimization and Multi-agent Technology for Combined Production and Transportation Planning by 38th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this research project, an integration of multi-agent technology and optimization techniques is suggested for the combined production and transport planning problem in a transport chain. The chain consists of a producer, a transport operator, and a number of customers. Optimization decomposition techniques use (dual) prices of resources to coordinate the generation of different plans in the so called sub-problems. We argue that these dual prices and generated plans can enhance the multi-agent based approach. By using the agent technology, we can better resemble the interactions between real planners reallocating resources. A transport chain within the food industry has been selected for validating the developed solution method
