Model Predictive Control of Reconfigurable Microgrids with hybrid and mobile energy storage
This Project deals with energy control in microgrids (a set of loads, generators and storage systems that can be managed in a coordinated way in order to operate isolated or connected to the main grid). The project will address several issues related to the connection between electric vehicles and microgrids, as well as the problems associated to the change in topology due to the switching on/off of any generator, storage unit or load. The project will develop several control strategies in the framework of Model Predictive Control (MPC), designed to manage in an efficient way the operation of these systems, addressing their reconfigurability both in one microgrid or a network of them. Control strategies will also consider operating criteria which include the degradation of storage systems, with the objective of increasing their lifetime.
Model predictive control, microgrids, networked control systems, storage area networks.
