Thus, when an agent ak receives a Σi∗ from a neighbor ai , the agent replaces its currently stored Σk∗ by Σi∗ , if the latter yields a better solution quality than the former. 30 C. Hinrichs et al. The whole process can be summarized in the following three steps: 1. (update) An agent ai receives information from one of its neighbors and imports it into its own knowledge base. That is, its beliefs Σi about the current configuration of the system is updated, as well as the best known configuration Σi∗ .

For example, a combined heat and power plant (CHP) primarily has to satisfy the (varying) thermal energy needs of a building. g. the provisioning of active power by this unit is difficult to request directly. Because of this rather dynamical behavior of such DER, an adaptive, decentralized control scheme is crucial for a reliable operation of the system (see [17,22] for more details regarding ongoing work in this domain).

This imposes a strict total order on ai ’s selections, hence λi reflects the “age” of a selection. e. states) of the other agents in the system into account. Definition 3. A configuration Σ = {σi , σk , . . } is a set of states. A state belonging to an agent ai can appear in a configuration no more than once: σi ∈ Σ ∧ σk ∈ Σ ⇒ i = k Note that this definition allows a configuration to be incomplete with regard to the population of agents in the system. A configuration that contains states for all existing agents is called global.
