Validation of a Distributed Energy Management Approach for Smart Grid Based on a Generic Colored Petri Nets Model

Abstract—This paper proposes a distributed energy management approach that aims to manage residential energy. The proposed approach considers the neighborhood energy surpluses in order to decrease energy costs. This management is improved based on a set of trust factors that a buyer defines on his neighbors to avoid non-optimal energy purchases. To evaluate the performance of this approach and to study its impact on the neighborhood, we elaborated a formal model representing the overall behavior of the system using colored Petri nets (CP-nets). The choice of CP-nets is justified by the fact that, in our approach, we have to deal with a variety of protocols and several operations that are executing simultaneously, and potentially interacting with each other. This formalism allowed us to formally verify the proposed approach as well as to generate a set of performance indicators. The obtained indicators prove the effectiveness of our solution compared to other approaches.

Index Terms—Modeling, smart grid, colored petri nets, formal validation, energy management.
