Abstract

The integration of energy storage technologies with renewable energy systems can significantly reduce the operating costs for microgrids (MG) in future electricity networks. This paper presents a novel energy management system (EMS) which can minimize the daily operating cost of a MG and maximize the self-consumption of the RES by determining the best setting for a central battery energy storage system (BESS) based on a defined cost function. This EMS has a two-layer structure. In the upper layer, a Convex Optimization Technique is used to solve the optimization problem and to determine the reference values for the power that should be drawn by the MG from the main grid using a 15 min sample time. The reference values are then fed to a lower control layer, which uses a 1 min sample time, to determine the settings for the BESS which then ensures that the MG accurately follows these references. This lower control layer uses a Rolling Horizon Predictive Controller and Model Predictive Controllers to achieve its target. Experimental studies using a laboratory-based MG are implemented to demonstrate the capability of the proposed EMS.
