  • MIP techniques for equilibrium models with integer constraints (B07) (2018 - 2022)

    (Third Party Funds Group – Sub project)

    Overall project: TRR 154: Mathematische Modellierung, Simulation und Optimierung am Beispiel von Gasnetzwerken
    Term: 01-07-2018 - 30-06-2022
    Funding source: DFG / Sonderforschungsbereich / Transregio (SFB / TRR)
    In this subproject we will develop techniques to solve equilibrium problems with integer constraints using MIP techniques. To this end, we will consider first mixed-integer linear, then mixed-integer nonlinear problems as subproblems. To solve the resulting problems we will study both complete descriptions as also generalized KKT theorems for mixed-integer nonlinear optimization problems.
  • Energiemarktdesign

    (Third Party Funds Group – Sub project)

    Overall project: Energie Campus Nürnberg (EnCN2)
    Term: 01-01-2017 - 31-12-2021
    Funding source: Bayerisches Staatsministerium für Bildung und Kultus, Wissenschaft und Kunst (ab 10/2013)

    In the project “Energy Markt Design” within EnCN2 a team of researchers from economics, mathematics, and law analyses the economic and regulatory environment for the transformation of the energy system. The main objectives are to enhance the methods in energy market modeling and to contribute with well-grounded analyses to the policy discourse in Germany and Europe. For the electricity market, the focus is on the steering effect of market designs on regulated transmission expansion and private investments, as well as on the identification of frameworks at the distribution level that provide regional stakeholders with business models for the provision of flexibility measures. In order to address these complex issues, mathematical techniques are developed within the project that allow for solving the respective models. Another key research topic results from the advancing sector coupling in energy markets. Within EMD, gas market models, that are developed within DFG Transregio 154 (Simulation and Optimization of Gas Networks) in cooperation with project partners, are applied to evaluate the European gas market design. The long-term objective of the research group is an integrated assessment of the electricity and gas market design and their combined effects on investment decisions.
