2017-12-30 Ukraine: Converters Operating Modes Control in Autonomous Power Supply Systems (COPCAPSS)


Converters Operating Modes Control in Autonomous Power Supply Systems (COPCAPSS)

Description of the project offered: 
The project seeks to solve the problem of power consumption increase in autonomous power supply system with renewable sources provided constant joint operation of solar panel, wind generator, diesel generator and storage battery is urgent in terms of power efficiency. The solution to this problem can be made through power utilization factor more accurate calculation. To ensure the best power use in Smart Grid and more accurate calculation of the power utilization factor it is necessary to consider the equivalent sources external characteristics nonlinearity. In order to improve the energy efficiency of power supply system the diesel generator must have the external characteristic of the current source controlled according to the ratios of solar panel and battery current and the required level of load voltage. The consortium aims to develop a tool that will modify converters control algorithms in order to provide better energy efficiency of autonomous power supply systems.

When autonomous power supply system is operating with dissimilar sources the fullest power use will be provided taking into account equivalent power sources external characteristics nonlinearities at certain ratios of internal resistances, which allows to specify the power utilization factor calculation, closer to real, it will also have a positive impact on correction converters control signals, which leads to the level of power taken from sources real increase. The converters control system in autonomous power supply system produces control signals considering the changes of wind flow parameters, the value of solar radiation and, therefore, the sources equivalent resistance in relevant equivalent schemes that determines the position of the operating point on the external characteristic and source operation mode.

During the wind generators operation the level of energy transferred to the load and the storage battery will be maximum with condition that compensator forms the active character of the load.

In wind generators dynamical operation mode when changing the blades pitch angle and gondolas yaw angle and considering linear dependence of wind generators internal resistance on time, formation of the compensators current according to the equation allows to increase the energy level that can be taken from the wind flow no less than 2,2 %.

The project will focus on developing control algorithm for converters in Smart Grid that would provide its energy efficient operation taking into account the equivalent sources external characteristics nonlinearity with the condition of forming the active character of the load and forming compensators current.
