The necessity for the utilization of microgrids emerges from the integration of distributed energy resources, electric vehicles, and battery storage systems into the conventional grid structure. In order to achieve a proper operation of the microgrid, the presence of a microgrid control system is crucial. The IEEE 2030.7 standard defines the microgrid control system as a key element of the microgrid that regulates every aspect of it at the point-of-interconnection with the distribution system, and autonomously manages operations such as the transitions of operating modes. In this paper, a microgrid control system is developed to achieve real-time monitoring and control through a centralized approach. The controller consists of a centralized server and advanced field units that are also developed during this work. The control functions of the centralized server ensure the proper operation during grid-connected and island modes, using the real-time data received via the advanced field unit. The developed server and the field unit constitute a complete system solution. The server is composed of control function and communication, database, and user interface modules. The microgrid control functions comprise dispatch and transition core-level functions. A rule-based core-level dispatch function guarantees the security of supply to critical loads during the islanded mode. The core-level transition function accomplishes a successful transition between the operation modes. Moreover, a communication framework and a graphical user interface are implemented. The presented system is tested through thecases based on the IEEE 2030.8 standard.

With the incorporation of renewable distributed energy resources and electric vehicles and battery storage systems into the conventional grid structure, the need for a microgrid and its control is emerging. IEEE 2030.7 Standard defines the Microgrid control system as a key element of microgrid regulating every aspect of it at the point-of-interconnection (POI) with the distribution system and autonomously manages operations such as transitions of operating modes. This system consists of control functions, w...
Numerical investigation of a stand alone solar hydrogen energy system effects of PEFC degradation
Ender, Ozden; Tarı, İlker (null; 2015-08-12)
An existing stand-alone solar energy system producing hydrogen for energy storage is numerically investigated focusing on the degradation of Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cell (PEFC) and its effects on the overall performance of the system. The system consists of Photovoltaic (PV) panels, polymer electrolyte based electrolyzers, H2 and O2 storage tanks and a commercial PEFC stack. A PEFC is numerically investigated both as new and as degraded (for about two years). Using a variety of observed degradation pattern...

Deploying renewable energy systems (RES) to supply electricity faces many challenges related to cost and the variability of the renewable resources. One possible solution to these challenges is to hybridize RES with conventional power systems and include energy storage units. In this study, the feasibility analysis of a grid-connected photovoltaic (PV)wind-battery hybrid system is presented as a microgrid for a university campus-scale community on a Mediterranean island. Models for PV and wind turbine syste...
Leakage current and energy efficiency analyses of single phase grid connected multi-kva transformerless photovoltaic inverters
Özkan, Ziya; Hava, Ahmet Masum; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
In order to inject solar power to the utility grid, among various types of inverters, Grid Connected Transformerless Solar Inverters (GCTSI) are mostly preferred for residential or commercial applications. This preference is because of the high energy efficiency and low cost due to the absence of a line frequency or a high frequency transformer. Peak value of the efficiency characteristics of GCTSIs can reach 98%, which are selected topology, component optimization, switching strategy and operating conditio...
Adaptation of Renewable Based Power Plants to the Energy Market Using Battery Energy Storage Systems
Durna, E.; Parlak, D.; Logoglu, E. Uz; Gercek, C. O. (2014-10-22)
This paper presents a method for the adaptation of a wind power plant to the energy market using battery energy storage systems (BESS) to show the feasibility of using fast-response batteries, and to calculate its payback period. The proposed method is also used to investigate the optimum battery size according to the installed capacity of the wind farm based on the price and wind forecast, and arbitrage opportunity so as to maximize the profit of the investor. The profit obtained from the market by the bat...
