Presentación de tesis doctoral al IIT Christian Calvillo 03/05/2017: Energy Management in Smart Cities
De Maria Isabel Sanchez Ortega A mayo 04, 2017
Models and simulators have been widely used in urban context for many decades. The drawback of most current models is that they are normally designed for specific objectives, so the elements considered are limited and they do not take into account the potential synergies between related systems. Therefore, this PhD thesis presents, i) a general conceptual framework for the modelling of energy related activities in the smart cities, based on determining the spheres of influence and intervention areas within the city, and on identifying agents and potential synergies among systems, and ii) the development of a holistic energy model of a smart city for the assessment of different courses of action, given its geo-location, regulatory and technical constraints, and current energy markets. This involves the creation of an optimization model that permits the optimal planning and operation of energy resources within the city.
