Strategic Manipulation of Decentralised Optimisation AlgorithmsGiven the rapid rise of electric vehicles (EVs) worldwide, and the ambitious targets set for the near future, the management of large EV fleets must be seen as a priority.

Finally, we test the proposed decentralised coordination and manipulation detection algorithms in realistic scenarios using real market and driver data from Spain. Our empirical results show that the decentralised algorithm's convergence to the optimal solution can be effectively disrupted by manipulative attacks achieving convergence to a different non-optimal solution which benefits the attacker.

In more detail, we consider both intra- and inter-hour models, and also incorporate exogenous explanatory variables such as wind generation and total demand forecasts. We present empirical results using real data from the Spanish day-ahead market and show that our models outperform previous models in the literature, achieving up to 58.028% performance increase from the naive benchmark, compared to the previous 7.805% reported in the literature. Moreover, we find that inter-hour models achieve up to 6.028% performance increase when compared to intra-hour models.

Abstract

This dataset supports Chapters 7 and 9 in the PhD thesis titled "Coordination Mechanisms for Electric Vehicle Aggregators". The data supporting the other chapters has been previously published with the following independent DOIs:- Dataset for "Coordination and payment mechanisms for electric vehicle aggregators" article DOI: 10.5258/SOTON/D0339 - Dataset for "Coordination of Electric Vehicle Aggregators: A Coalitional Approach" DOI: 10.5258/SOTON/D0413 - Dataset for "Fair Online Allocation of Perishable Goods and its Application to Electric Vehicle Charging" DOI: 10.5258/SOTON/D0926In more detail, this dataset contains: - Chapter 7.
