Summary: Energy utility systems are typically responsible for satisfying internal customers (e.g., the various process plants in the industrial complex). The increasing independence of business units in the complex matches an emerging trend in the utility systems to operate for own economic viability and for the encouragement to trade with both internal and external customers. The paper presents a dynamic management system supporting autonomy and the optimal operation of the utility system. The management system comprises three functional components, which support negotiation, short-term (tactical) and long-term (strategic) optimisation. The negotiation component involves an agent-based system exploiting the knowledge base established with real-time and historical data, whereas the optimisation provides a primal front (operational changes) and background front (structural changes) to account for the tactical and strategic decisions.
