METIS: a Ilab collaboration between TAO-INRIA and ARTELYS.
METIS is a Inria/Artelys collaboration.
What is METIS ?
The Ilab METIS is an effort for mixing
(i) the MDP/POMDP work of TAO and
(ii) the energy systems simulation and optimization by Artelys
into stable, efficient, maintained softwares for energy investment and energy management.
A brief introduction is here.
Technically we love the study of
The future of METIS ?
- bias in M-estimation (e.g. in power systems: capacity estimation),
- the impact of simplifying assumptions (linearity, convexity, finite sample, anticipativity),
- the impact of agregating time steps (might be critical for introducing renewable energies in power grids and estimating the impact of microgrids!)
The Ilab is motivated for prospective studies at a detailed scale, so that storage, connection, demand-shifting can be taken into account on various technological scenarios. The goal of this work is to be efficient both
- at a continental scale.
- at the scale of a town.
The Ilab is interested in developing its activities in Taiwan and Asia through the Indema work.
- The Ilab might have activities in Chile through the Inria-Chile fundation.
- The ILAB focuses on the optimization core of the platforme, in particular for stochastic problems. More information in these slides
- Citines: a project for the management of local systems (cities, industries). Technically speaking, the MDP involved in Citines have less uncertainties and these uncertainties are easier to modelize stochastically. Citines is an ongoing FP7 project.
- Iomca: a work on MDP solving, with a focus on uncertainty, partial observability and non-anticipativity. Iomca is an ANR project and is now over.
- POST is a ADEME project. It is aimed at optimizing large scale grids, with a focus on long term investments. In POST, uncertainties are huge and difficult to moedelize with random processes. Also, the state space and action space are huge.
- The ILAB is a Inria/Artelys partnership.
- Projects are funded by Europe FP7, ANR, ADEME.
- The ILAB has contacts in Chile (visit in March; additional visioconferences).
- The ILAB has contacts in Taiwan; we organized meetings there, we received their delegation in September 2013, many students have spent months there.
- M. Schoenauer, M. Sebag, O. Teytaud: permanent staff.
- J. Decock, J.-J. Christophe: ILAB
- J. Liu, M.-L. Cauwet, S. Astete-Morales, D.L. Saint-Pierre: POST
- A. Couetoux: IOMCA/CITINES (leaving soon)
