Hydrogen-Aeolic Energy with Optimised eLectrolysers Upstream of Substation

Control System for mini-grid use case

The Haeolus project is pleased to publish a new deliverable on the control system developed for mini grid use case authored by Muhammad B. Abdelghany, Muhammad F. Sheshzad, Davide Liuzza, Valerio Mariani, and Luigi Glielmo (UniSannio).

The report develops the control system for the mini-grid use case where the wind farm, the hydrogen-based energy storage system and the local load constitute a micro-grid. The control goal is to find the optimal power schedule profiles for the electrolyser and the fuel cell to minimize operational costs and to maximize power sold revenues. It is realized by a cascaded Model Predictive Control (MPC) strategy.
