Using Fluid Queues to Model Energy Storage and Distribution

By Gareth L. Jones and Peter G. Harrison


Energy storage and distribution is an increasingly important problem as renewable (and generally unreliable) energy sources supply more of our power needs. In this extended abstract we consider a simple network of energy suppliers, consumers and buffers modelled as fluid queues. Analytical evaluation of networks of fluid queues is hard as even tandem networks do no have a product form solution. We improve an approximation algorithm previously introduced to work in this new setting and evaluate our results using the Java JINQS simulator.
