Efficient integration of additional wind and solar power in
the power system in Cyprus requires rethinking of the design and operation of
the entire power system. The power system in Cyprus is an island system – no
power lines to the continent. The main power generation is based on thermal
power plants. But an increasing part of the generation comes from wind and
solar power generation. Already today, the wind power generation is curtailed
during periods with high wind and low consumption (during nights).
The University of Cyprus plans to install 10 MW PV and
1 MW / 1 MWh battery at their new university campus in Nicosia. The
battery (and the PV inverters) can be used to optimise the value of the solar
power generation, both for the university and for the power system.
The Master Thesis should analyse, compare and
evaluate different strategies and solutions to optimise the integration of more
wind and solar power in the power system – both regarding design and operation.
In collaboration with the University of Cyprus.
