Microgrid optimization, modelling and control


Abstract: This project is about maximum utilizing the natural gas engine with attached storage system to maintain a near constant grid frequency under rapid fluctuation load condition. However, with the long time delay associated with natural gas engine. This task could be very challenging. We will deploy advanced robust control techniques to overcome this problem. This presentation talks about microgrid optimization for fuel minimization; Microgrid modelling, including: Natural gas engine, battery and DC-AC inverter. Control approaches that will be applied to the microgrid is also discussed.
