Scalable Control of Interconnected Systems

Researchers: Taouba Jouini, Olle Kjellqvist, Felix Agner, Pauline Kergus, Richard Pates, Emil Vladu, Anders Rantzer


Modern society is critically dependent on large-scale networks for services such as energy supply, transportation and communications. The design and control of such networks is becoming increasingly complex, due to their growing size, heterogeneity and autonomy. A systematic theory and methodology for control of large-scale interconnected systems is therefore needed. In an ambitious effort towards this goal, this project will address the following key aspects:

  • Modeling by leveraging tools from learning and adaption
  • Control design by utilizing structural properties of the system
  • Verification of system performance using decomposable certificates

Energy networks (electricity and district heating) will be used as a guiding example for the development of theory and methodology. The applicative dimension of this project is led in close collaboration with industrial partners in the energy sector.
