Microgrid Energy Management with Integration of Hybrid Storage Systems

Project: Research

Project Details


The surging growth of renewable energy resources (RER) has strengthened energy security and reduced greenhouse gas emissions in recent years. In line with the world trend, according to Saudi Vision 2030, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) planned to 50% of renewable energy into its national energy mix by integrating them into the national electricity grid, installing rooftop PV systems, and building standalone or grid-integrated micro-grid systems. As achieve the objectives of the Saudi Vision 2030, the Ministry of Energy announced the installation of small-scale solar PV systems to allow the citizens to produce electricity at their homes or establishments and connect to the national grid by launching a new program named Shamsi. The program facilitates an online platform for the feasibility study (focusing on energy yield estimation) of small-scale PV systems according to the selected technology for all 13 provinces of the country. Therefore, the RER-based microgrids are becoming popular due to their efficient energy management globally. The energy storage system can enhance its performance against the intermittent nature of renewable energy sources and load demand uncertainty. It is expected that the Kingdom will put enormous efforts into the development of microgrid systems to power the remote areas. In this research, an effective energy management and control technique will be developed for the microgrid equipped with renewable energy resources and an energy storage system. This research reviews recently developed approaches to enhance the performance of the microgrid with energy storage systems. Hence, it will develop an advanced strategy for better managing the microgrid where different probabilistic methods will be employed to model the uncertain behavior of renewable energy
