Mathematical optimization for Industry 4.0

 This academic course started the third edition of the Master in Industry 4.0 of the UPC School. The main objective of the master's degree in Industry 4.0 is to train professionals to understand the complexities and challenges of Industry 4.0 in a transversal way. I participate in this master giving a course on mathematical optimization for industry 4.0. In the first part of the course, we review the role of mathemnatical optimization, operations research and analytics in Ind. 4.0, analyse some case studies on mathematical optimization models in supply chain and energy industry. In the second part, the theoretical and computational basis of mathematical optimization are presented and applied by the students to solve a complete optimization project in supply and distribution chain using mathematical optimization modeling software.

AbstractThe following Master Thesis involves the construction of a mathematical model aimed at evaluating the economic feasibility of microgrids, which are powered by renewable energy sources. These sources are characterized by their spatial and temporal variability, thus the need to use a statistical approach to forecast these variables becomes apparent. Furthermore, other uncertain variables such as the electrical demand and the market pool price contribute to the formulation of the program. State-of-the-art time-series based models are fitted in order to forecast the behaviour of the uncertain variables. Synthetic data arisen from simulations is drawn from these models in order to generate scenarios of probability. The scenarios are then reduced by means of the backward reduction algorithm in order to increase computational performance, and subsequently introduced in a two-stage stochastic program coded in AIMMS interface. Results show significant details about energy management and prove the suitability of using a stochastic approach rather than a deterministic one to perform the optimisation.

AbstractThe main focus of this master thesis project is to evaluate the economic, technical and regulatory feasibility of distributed battery energy storage systems (BESS) and the potential opportunity of electricity companies to increase their pro ts through advanced operation in energy services, such as electric energy time-shift, ancillary or electric vehicle incentives in Spanish electricity market. To assess the feasibility, an optimization tool has been developed. This tool simulates energy trading between diff erent market participants with particular features extracted from data analysis and literature. Load consumption pro les had been developed from smart meter real data by applying several data mining techniques. This part had been guided by external collaborating entity Minsait. Electricity market analysis includes the overview of its functionality principles and regulatory side regarding storage adaptation and speci fic service applicability. Market historical prices were used for further electricity trading simulation. A brief technical insight explains current storage situation and tells about high-potential technologies in emerging markets. Benchmark analysis covers several products of battery manufacturers with relevant technical and price information. Spanish electricity market showed low adaptability to distributed BESS solutions: energy arbitrage incomes have resulted being insuficient. Ancillary services, despite promising economic gures, are to a large extent prohibited to be provided by distributed storage. Electric vehicle incentives, though, resulted being of a high interest due to absence of direct investment.

AbstractThe goal of this course is to introduce the student to the problems of system modeling in the presence of uncertainty, and familiarization with techniques and algorithms for dealing with them. The course deals with the case of stochastic programming, i.e. the optimization of problems with random variables . Stochastic modelling and programming bases are provided and it is hoped that upon completion of the course the student will be able to identify, model, formulate and solve decision-making problems with both deterministic and as random variables. Abilities to Be Acquired:
  • Identifying when a problem is suitable to be modeled and solved as a stochastic optimization problem.
  • Formulation of stochastic optimization problems, determining decisions in the first, second and next stages.
  • Knowledge of the basic properties of stochastic optimization problems.
  • Knowledge of specialized solution methods for stochastic problems.
  • Knowledge and use of software for the solution of stochastic problems.
