Paper Abstract Integration of electricity and heat distribution networks offers extra flexibility to system operation and improves energy efficiency. The energy hub (EH) plays an important role in energy production, conversion and storage in such coupled infrastructures. This paper provides a new outlook and thorough mathematical tool for studying the integrated energy system from a deregulated market perspective. A mathematic program with equilibrium constraints (MPEC) model is proposed to study the strategic behaviors of a profit-driven EH in the electricity and heating markets under the background of energy system integration. In the upper level, the EH submits bids of prices and quantities to a distribution power market and a heating market. In the lower level, these two markets are cleared and energy contracts between the EH and two energy markets are determined. Network constraints of physical systems are explicitly represented by an optimal power flow problem and an optimal thermal flow problem. The proposed MPEC formulation is approximated by a mixed-integer linear program via performing integer disjunctions on the complementarity and slackness conditions and binary expansion technique on the bilinear product terms. Case studies demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed model and method.
