Distributed control approach in electrical networks: advantages and challenges

Some key features of future electrical networks include the high penetration of distributed generation units, either those that are based on renewable sources or those that are dispatchable, the increasing usage of storage energy systems, and the possibility of having bidirectional power flow, in which consumers can have active roles in the balancing the power…

Integrated simulation and design optimisation tools

Monte Carlo simulation and Multistage stochastic programming approaches for the day-ahead scheduling of local energy systems The implementation of microgrids is considered useful to enable the increasing integration of decentralized energy producers. However, the volatility of renewable energy generation and demand behaviour is one of the biggest challenges for the operation of local energy systems,…
