Abstract

A project has been initiated in South Africa to design, model, build, and evaluate an easy to install solar fueled combined heat and power (micro-CHP) system to supply off-grid rural villages and eco-estate communities. This study describes the design of a model that offers a combined [...]

Abstract

California has set the goal to source 100% of its electricity from renewable energy by 2045, up from 32% in 2017. Meanwhile, the growing mismatch between the renewable energy generation and peak demand is raising concerns on the electric grid's stability and efficiency. At the same [...]

Abstract

The operation of public and semi-public charging infrastructure is often not profitable yet. However, the integration of charging infrastructure in microgrids enables the introduction of innovative business models, e.g. by local renewable energy generation and storage units. Another [...]

Abstract

This paper deals with a procedure capable to build the scenario tree associated with a parking lot equipped with several bidirectional charging stations for plug-in electric vehicles (EVs). The scenario tree is conceived to be implemented in multistage stochastic optimization models [...]

Abstract

The development of microgrids has enabled prosumers to develop optimal power management and demand response (DR) strategies. Based on this idea, virtual prosumers and microgrids can be created in a traditional city structure, exploiting microgrids’ ability to operate connected [...]

Abstract

The work to detect the fault in a micro-network is presented, where an island-type micro-network implemented in simulink/Matlab is simulated. Which has a photovoltaic system, an energy storage system and a generation system that is in synchronism with the network. The ground faults [...]

Abstract

'''Microgrids play a crucial role in integrating various components such as combined heat and power (CHP) plants, distributed energy storage systems and renewable energy resources (RER). The integration of CHP plants in microgrids allows for the efficient utilization [...]
