The volatile production of renewable energy sources is often considered a key issue in future sustainable energy systems. Drawing on microgrid research, we argue that the potential synergy between microgrid energy management and provision of flexibility services to the wider grid could be further explored. In addition, the trade-off between cost...

Airborne Wind Energy is a promising technology that is becoming the point of interest for many applications. One market in which the AWE systems can open a path as a renewable distributed generator is in offgrid communities or camps. Nowadays, this market is dominated by fossil fuel energy like diesel generators. Even though the diesel is cheap,...

Continuous growth in electricity demand, increasing awareness for global warming and other en- vironmental issues have triggered attention to a new type of electricity generation-the so-called distributed generation consisting of various renewable energy sources. Despite the technological, economic and environmental benefits that the new...

End – consumers have become more active in the effort to achieve secure operation of the electricity grid. Demand response offers a set of solutions allowing consumers to achieve normalised load profiles and increase the balance between energy generation and consumption. Storage technologies and renewable energy sources integrated in microgrid...

The current architecture of the power grid is outdated and will not provide the means to deal with the decentralization of energy sources. The smart grid is a newly envisioned architecture for the power grid that should solve the weaknesses in the current grid. One application that is part of the smart grid vision is the microgrid: a coalition...

More than 200 million Indians are without electricity, and the majority lies in the rural areas, where the central grid fails to reach due to unreliable distribution and inconsistent terrain. The solutions that reach include majorly, decentralized energy resources via solar micro-grids, or solar home systems. New projects of energy sharing are...

The world at large is passing through a phase of energy transformation – from a traditional centralized unidirectional to a decentralized and distributed bidirectional power system, with consumers becoming prosumers. Facilitated by the technological advancements in power electronics and growing concerns over climatic changes, this transformation...

The thesis proposes a controller that enables microgrids to have a modular structure, to be flexible in terms of linked energy consumers and resources, and to offer the possibility of prioritized demand side management, while avoiding the need of employing a dedicated communication network. For this, the control strategy applies droop control,...

The traditional power system has been undergoing fundamental changes during the latest years. The developments in the field of renewable energy sources, as well as in the power electronics industry, acted as drivers aiding the establishment of micro-grids. Nowadays, power production is becoming more and more decentralized, therefore loads and...

The inertial response plays a vital role in electrical networks to reduce the rate of change of frequency (RoCoF) following a contingency event. If the inertia has a low or zero value due to a lack of synchronous generators, then the electrical network might experience large undesirable frequency deviations. To overcome this problem, in previous...

In this thesis work we solve the problem of optimal placement and sizing of distributed generation by using an original Fuzzy Adaptive Particle Swarm Optimization algorithm and a Mixed Integer Linear Programming formulation of the problem. The goal of integrating Fuzzy Logic in Particle Swarm Optimization is to be able to overcome some of the...

Today 19% of the global population has no access to electricity. Most of these people live in rural areas. These 1,4 billion people would benefit from electricity access for five reasons: their health, education, local economy, sense of safety and communication will benefit. This thesis focuses on off-grid microgrids, with no extension to a main...

In order to cope with various supplies and loads in an autonomous microgrid, a system of sensors and a control unit was developed. The goals of this system are to cope efficiently in the event of an energy supply shortage, and to prevent such events as much as possible. To achieve these goals, the aim was to manage energy in the system as...

Advancements in power electronics has sparked the adaptability of dc systems in varied application fields. The phenomenon of electric arcing in such dc systems, arising due to the absence of zero crossing of current during normal operation, has impeded the widespread proliferation of dc-based technologies in the market. Considering the...

The Dutch electricity system is changing and subject to multiple developments. Important developments are the increasing share of distributed energy resources (DER?s) such as solar panels and the increasing use of electronics like computers and televisions. While DER?s produce DC (Direct Current) power, electronics consume DC power. Nevertheless...
