System Analysis on Electricity Infrastructure Evolution Using Hybrid Simulation Tool

Student thesis: Master's Thesis


Hybrid modeling method proposed in this work depicts the concept of electricity infrastructure evolution. In the model developed, I address the electricity infrastructure as a part of society having socio-economic dynamics. Each agent represents a village and chooses the optimal type of electricity infrastructure based on the independent decision rules. Once the decisions are made for all villages, the variables of the local environment changes dynamically which reversely affects the next decision of agents. The combination of different methodologies can effectively describe the final electricity infrastructure that "emerges" from the integration of individual behaviors of all agents.
