Solar Charger Sizing

As a part of the optimization of photovoltaic energy extraction, an optimization of each individual component is required. This paper focuses on the optimization of solar attery charger block and presents a new method to track the maximum power point and the load regulation. For this purpose, we proposed a specific architecture and design of a high-reliable, robust, stable, miniaturized system. We sized a photovoltaic charger to regulate the battery charger that employs an intelligent algorithm including the criteria of reliability.

Dynamic modeling of grid-connected photovoltaic system using artificial neural network and genetic algorithm

Photovoltaic (PV) systems have one of the highest potentials and operating ways for generating electrical power by converting solar irradiation directly into the electrical energy. The aim of this study is to simulate and control of a grid-connected PV source using artificial neural network (ANN) and genetic algorithm (GA) controller. Also, for tracking the maximum power point (MPP), ANN and GA are used. Data are optimized by GA and then these optimized data are applied in the neural network training. The simulation results are presented by using Matlab/Simulink and show that the ANN—GA controller can meet the need of the load easilyand have less fluctuations around the maximum power point (MPP), also it can increase convergence speed to achieve the MPP. Moreover, to control both line voltage and current, a grid side P-Q controller has been applied.

Comparative Performance of Supercapacitor and Fuel cell based UPQC

In this paper analysis comparative result of a supercapacitor based unified power quality conditioner comparing with a fuel cell based unified power quality conditioner. This work describes the unified power quality conditioner principles and power restoration for balanced or unbalanced voltage sag or swells in a distribution system. This method proposes a typical configuration of unified power quality conditioner that consists of a DC/DC converter supplied by a supercapacitor at the DC link. This analysis used for comparing how the THD will be improved and after injecting current and voltage to UPQC source current and source voltage are sinusoidal. This paper explains the comparative results of UPQC showing performance Wise THD of upercapacitor and fuel cell, the harmonic distortion is reduced in fuel cell as compared
to supercapacitor. The comparative studies analyse in both the cases fuel cell is better than supercapacitor in power quality parameters as THD and power factor etc. The result analysis shows the THD of supercapacitor and fuel cell, the harmonic distortion is quite reduced in fuel cell as compared to supercapacitor. The operation of the proposed system is modeled and simulated in MATLAB environment using Simulink and Simpower System toolboxes.

Robust Generation Control Strategy Based on Grey Wolf Optimizer

This paper presents an application of Grey Wolf Optimizer (GWO) technique to estimate the parameters of the Proportional Integral Controller (PI) for Automatic Generation Control of two area power system. In this work two thermal units with non reheat turbines are considered. The detailed eigenvalue analysis is carried out for exhibiting the philosophy of damping requirement in the complex networks. The parameters namely proportional integral gain, speed regulation, frequency sensitivity coefficient are considered as the modifiable parameters. These parameters are estimated through optimization process with the aim to minimize the Area Control Error
(ACE). The comparison between two objective functions namely Integral Square Error (ISE) and Integral Time Absolute Error (ITAE) is presented. Sensitivity analysis advocates the effectiveness of the proposed approach. To draw a fair comparison between the proposed method and the conventional methods (GSA, PSO and GA) convergence characteristics of the optimization techniques are compared and presented. It is observed that the proposed design satisfactorily handle different contingencies and operating conditions.

Comparison of Hybrid DifferentialEvolution Algorithm with GeneticAlgorithm Based Power System SecurityAnalysis Using FACTS

This paper presents a novel stochastic hybrid differential evolutionary algorithm technique to find the optimal location of Flexible Alternating Current Transmission System (FACTS) devices with minimum cost of installation and to improve power system security and is compared with Genetic Algorithm (GA). Differential Evolution (DE) algorithm technique is a simple evolutionary search algorithm and shows better performance but greedy in space searching. Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) converges quickly and but stuck in local optima.A novel heuristic method based on Genetic algorithm also used to find optimal location of FACTS devices to enhance the power system security and no absolute assurance of global optimum. In this paper hybrid differential evolutionary algorithm (DEPSO) is introduced to eliminate the problems of DE and PSO and solve the power system security problem with
greater accuracy and compared with Genetic Algorithm. The proposed algorithm minimizes the security index, loss and the installation cost of FACTS devices in the transmission network. Security index indicates the overload level of the transmission lines. Three types of FACTS devices, Static Var Compensator (SVC), Thyristor Controlled Series Compensator (TCSC) and Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) are considered and the proposed algorithm is verified by standard IEEE 14 bus network.

An improved simple Fuel Cell model for Energy Management in residential buildings

This paper deals with a fuel cell (FC) model to be integrated into the energy management algorithm for a stand-alone residential photovoltaic (PV) power system. The FC system is added to guarantee continuous power supply taking account of the photovoltaic intermittent nature. FC models are generally relatively complex especially when they should be introduced in a complete hybrid system model. This paper investigates a simple FC model derived from the FC electrical circuit model. Analytic expression of each element of this simple circuit is established. Experimental tests are conducted to identify the model parameters. FC model is simulated using PSIM software and validated with corresponding experimental polarization curves. To verify FC model effectiveness for energy management algorithm, simulations are carried out with specific load shape and a hybrid system (FC and PV systems with storage batteries). Several scenarios are performed under various meteorological conditions and in case of non-availability generation.

Voltage Unbalance in Low Voltage Networks with Single-phase and Three-phase Micro-Generation and Loads

The incorporation of clean energy sources in the power system is a topic of discussion almost everywhere. After the “Wind (farms) of change”, small, dispersed, urban photovoltaic (PV) generators are being installed in the roofs of the buildings,
connected to the local Low Voltage (LV) grid. A boost in this type of renewable micro generation is expected in the near future. Due to the domestic loads, LV grids are inherently unbalanced, its analysis requiring the use of three-phase load flow
methods. This same methodology is used in this paper to assess the problem of the concurrent unbalanced generation and load and to cope with the presence of both single and three-phase equipment in the same grid. A review of existent models for
three-phase equipment is performed. The issue of modelling three-phase loads (isolated star and delta connected) and singlephase PV generators and associated power electronics is given special attention. Finally, a case-study is presented, enabling to draw some conclusions regarding the impacts on the Medium Voltage (MV) grid and the behaviour of the system facing different climacteric conditions.
