Seminar: Smart Grids (Prof. dr. ir.J. Scherpen, RUG)

In this talk we focus on the various energy grids, their coupling, and the control of the grids while having more and more embedding of renewables, and various storage devices. The two perspectives and the integration thereof that will be treated are the physical layer  and the optimization layer of a grid, where market structures are relevant. A combination of passivity based control techniques, as well as optimization in a combined distributed and hierarchical market structure will be considered. We will focus specifically on embedding renewables through converters, DC and AC microgrids, and embedding of storage devices such as power-to-gas facilities in the various grids.
