Intelligent Management Decisions Seminar




SoS Lecture - 11 December 2012

City Systems & Control Centre in Association with IEEE SMC Chapter-UK&RI

About the seminar:

Abstract- Fuzzy Logic-based decision-making framework is implemented for energy management in microgrid systems in order to meet targets such as providing local consumers with required energy demand and making good revenue for the microgrid owner under a time-varying electricity cost policy while helping reduce negative environmental effects due to air polluting sources of electrical energy such as coal fire plants which operate in the main grid in order to provide energy for the whole region of interest. Typically, a microgrid system has two modes of operation. It either works synchronously with the main grid or operates independently from the main grid in an isolated, i.e. islanded, mode. Distributed renewable energy resources including solar and wind in association with batteries and main grid supply power to the consumer in the microgrid network. One-day period is divided to a finite number of time-slots. The Fuzzy intelligent approach implemented in this article determines the rate at which power has to be delivered to/taken from the storage unit during the next time-slot depending on the electricity price per kWh of energy, local load demand, electricity generation rate through renewable resources, and air pollution factor all of which are sampled at predetermined rates. Cost function is defined as the sum of balance/revenue due to electricity trade between microgrid and the main grid, which includes the power provided to local load and distribution losses. Five different scenarios are considered for local load and microgrid assembly operation. Measures of balance/revenue will be extracted to represent benefits of using fuzzy logic for energy management in microgrids with air pollution reduction policy. Additionally a review of gaps in system of systems engineering advances as well as cooperative efforts between European Union and USA researchers and agencies will be reviewed, based on T-AREA-SoS (Trans-Atlantic Agenda on Research and Education in SoS) an EC-funded grant between Loughbrough and Bournemouth Universities in UK and Purdue University and University of Texas, San Antonio in the US.
