Poster presentation at International Renewable Energy Storage Conference (IRES) 2015
There are several concepts dealing with the operation of microgrids either with focus on computational efficiency or level of detail concerning the component behaviour. The presented approach, as a basis for “Simulation Model for Optimized Operation & Topology of Hybrid Energy Systems” (SMOOTH), provides a trade-off between these aspects. Therefore, it allows for short-term optimisation of microgrids concerning different components and dimensions (e.g. electric energy, heat or hydrogen mass flow) without oversimplifying the components’ behaviour.
