In the future, the energy supply will primarily consist of energy from renewables, which makes energy producers and grid operators fear that grid security and reliability could be threatened. On top of a more fluctuating supply, energy demand is also expected to increase in the coming years, especially if heating will be electrical when gas is...

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges of this time. One of the necessary changes to combat this challenge is a shift from conventional power resources, such as coal and natural gas, to large scale deployment of renewable resources, such as wind and solar power. However, renewable energy resources are volatile because they depend on the...

In a bid to battle global warming the Dutch government has set ambitious targets to cut CO2 emissions in the Dutch Climate Agreement [1]. Aside from this state-driven initiative in line with the Paris agreement, several Dutch cities have presented their own climate initiatives. The city of Amsterdam has pledged to reduce its CO2 emissions by 55%...

The optimal power flow (OPF) problem is a classic and widely-studied topic in the field of power systems.Its purpose is to minimize the running costs of a power system by determining the optimal operating points,while respecting a set of physical constraints. While most power systems are currently controlled by a centralcoordinator, there is...

The goal of this graduation project was to design a state-of-the-art central farm controller. The designed central farm controller distinguishes itself from prevailing controllers by including a subsystem (the optimisation unit) that contributes to an improvement in power transmission effciency, decrease in maintenance costs and an increase in...

Smart charging offers the potential for electric vehicles to use renewable energy more efficiently, lowering costs and improving the stability of the electricity grid. Many computer models have been developed to simulate the behavior of smart charging. Yet these models often assume that future information is known perfectly, including when...

As the share of solar and wind in the energy mix increases, the inherent intermittency of these energy sources pose a great challenge for the Dutch power grid. The occurrence of problems with congestion and balancing power supply and demand are becoming more common. Companies in the Netherlands show potential to implement means for smart use of...

Traditional electric power systems with large centralized base load power plants have a limited ability to react rapidly to the high supply variability associated with the increasing deployment of variable and intermittent renewable energy sources (RESs). Furthermore, with current power distribution networks primarily designed for unidirectional...

There is a convergence occurring between the energy demands of modern society and the sustainability requirements of the environment in which we live in. The combination of these factors is driving the development and implementation of an updated power system with integration of Renewable Energy Sources (RES). This calls for an update of the...

Natural gas has been a significant source of energy for the Netherlands for a long time, but due to developments such as climate change awareness and increased seismic activity in the Groningen area, the Dutch Government has decided to shift away from natural gas and look for alternatives. Hydrogen gas is such a contender, as it can partly use...

Nowadays renewable energy sources (RES) are growing at a rapid pace, particularly the wind energy. The high amount of wind power penetration into the power grids poses a major challenge to Transmission System Operators (TSO) in terms of the operational management, as wind power is highly uncertain. The highly uncertain nature of the wind power...

Assuming that cars in the near future will be fully electrical and capable of driving autonomously with or without any human on board. This resulted in two main topics in the research, architectural changes and ability to add to sustainability of buildings with these future cars. The conclusion was basically that we can reduce uses space of a...

Smart grid systems (SGSs) are often considered as enablers to the transition to a sustainable economy and power system, because they integrate ICT with renewable energy into the electricity grid. Seemingly, there are societal concerns regarding the impact of SGSs, which underlie ethical values. Due to a lack of understanding and thus...

Smart Grid scheduling problems are characterized by quickly changing situations and multiple external factors that cannot be controlled. Most smart grid research applies stochastic models over the total power consumption of a household or system to find a schedule that achieves an optimization, a balancing, or constraint satisfaction. While...
