Project

Optimal hybrid park control strategy

Publisher

Supervisor

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

The inner control loop of each element of the park, e.g. wind turbines, solar converters and central battery management system (BMS) will maximize its individual power production. The main goal of the project is to investigate different high-level control strategies in order to successfully coordinate the performance of the individual elements and improve the park performance. Several goals might be considered, e.g. electrical loss minimization, curtailment minimization, reactive power control, etc. which could be combined and weighted to achieve an aggregated optimal response. This is a challenging opportunity for motivated students with keen interest in controls, wind and solar energy to work in a leading-edge industrial topic. The student is expected to perform the following tasks: 

  • Review and understand the existing technical regulations and relevant literature related to Hybrid parks.
  • Understand the main control principles of the each individual plant element, e.g. wind turbines, PV converters, BMS.
  • Investigate different control strategies at the park level considering different time frames, e.g. based on the current available forecast information.
  • Discuss the value of the proposed solution(s) in terms of robustness, reliability, grid compliance and expected economic benefits. Evaluate their expected performance.
