Title Development of a Stochastic Method for Detecting Deviant Communication Patterns in Agent-based Energy Systems

In the ongoing digitalization and increasing complexity of energy systems, efficient communication between the involved agents plays a pivotal role. The ability to identify and analyze various communication patterns can be extremely relevant in modeling. The challenge lies in identifying deviant patterns among a multitude of behaviors, especially when they differ from the training data.

Objective of the Thesis
The goal of this thesis is to develop a method capable of recognizing and classifying deviant forms of communication between agents in energy systems. The focus will be, for example, on distinguishing between periodic and event-based communication behaviors. The method should identify new or unexpected patterns in communication behavior that significantly deviate from the patterns represented in the training data.

Problem statement
  • Conducting a literature review on existing methods of pattern recognition in datasets.
  • Development of a stochastic method for detecting deviant communication patterns. This method should be able to differentiate between known (e.g., periodic) and unknown (e.g., event-based) communication patterns.
  • Analysis and evaluation of the method's effectiveness based on its ability to detect and classify deviant communication patterns.
