This paper presents a two-level hierarchical energy management system (EMS) for microgrid operation that is based on a robust model predictive control (MPC) strategy. This EMS focuses on minimizing the cost of the energy drawn from the main grid and increasing self-consumption of local renewable energy resources, and brings benefits to the...

In this thesis, we design control algorithms for power scheduling of a fleet of fuel cell cars in a microgrid. Fuel cell cars are a relatively new type of vehicles. The driving force of these cars comes from an electrical motor and in order to generate the required electricity for the operation of the motor, the vehicle is equipped with a fuel...

This report answers the question: How can HEMS be used to influence energy-saving behaviour of homeowners? Lessons regarding the feedback from HEMS to influence energy-saving behaviour have been explored and specifications of HEMS to influence energy saving by households are given.<br/>Generally, the implementation of the Triple-A HEMS should...

This paper presents the design of an energy management system (EMS) capable of forecasting photovoltaic (PV) power production and optimizing power flows between PV system, grid, and battery electric vehicles (BEVs) at the workplace. The aim is to minimize charging cost while reducing energy demand from the grid by increasing PV self...

Fuel cell electric vehicles convert chemical energy of hydrogen into electricity to power their motor. Since cars are used for transport only during a small part of the time, energy stored in the on-board hydrogen tanks of fuel cell vehicles can be used to provide power when cars are parked. In this paper, we present a community microgrid...

A much occurring problem in the Energy Management Systems of existing buildings and HVAC services is that the measurements are unreliable. In this article a methodology is described which can be used to determine the presence of errors in energy monitoring, caused by faulty measurements. These errors can be detected and subsequently diagnosed....

Between 2008 and 2011, three different home energy management systems (HEMS)that give feedback on energy consumption were implemented in households in the Netherlands. Home energy management systems are defined as intermediary devices that can visualise, monitor and/or manage domestic gas and/or electricity consumption. Through a series of...

Even the enterprises with very advanced management systems often do not monitor efficiency of use of important energy and material flows within their processes and therefore, have difficulty to effectively manage their resource efficiency. This paper is built upon experiences from a pilot implementation of a new tool for promotion of energy...

Home Energy Management Systems (HEMS), e.g. energy monitors, are intermediary products that can visualize, manage, and/or monitor the energy use of other products or whole households. HEMS increasingly receive attention for their role in energy conservation in households. A literature review and a case study examine the mid-term effectiveness ...
