A methodological Decision-Making support for the planning, design and operation of smart grid projects

  • Received: 26 March 2020 Accepted: 19 June 2020 Published: 13 July 2020
  • Planning and operation of Smart energetic have become more complex to analyse due to structural changes in the energy sector. The inclusion of distributed generation sources, generation with renewable sources, storage systems, and the dislocation of information between the different organization levels and actors lead to the inherent difficulty of defining appropriate models that help decision making. Nowadays, decisions in planning and operation are made level by level rather than integrated manner. To address this problem, this work proposes a multi-level methodological framework based on Key Performance Indicators and System of Systems concepts. Involving methods, both quantitative and qualitative, this work serves as guidance to managers, planners, or political decision-makers from any electrical enterprise to help them find suitable solutions for planning and operation of smart grid projects.
