Abstract
In this paper, we present a hierarchical, iterative distributed optimization algorithm, and show that the algorithm converges to the solution of a particular global optimization problem. The motivation for the distributed optimization problem is the predictive control of a smart grid, in which the states of charge of a network of residentialscale batteries are optimally coordinated so as to minimize variability in the aggregated power supplied to/from the grid by the residential network. The distributed algorithm developed in this paper calls for communication between a central entity and an optimizing agent associated with each battery, but does not require communication between agents. The distributed algorithm is shown to achieve the performance of a largescale centralized optimization algorithm, but with greatly reduced communication overhead and computational burden. A numerical case study using data from an Australian electricity distribution network is presented to demonstrate the performance of the distributed optimization algorithm.
