HTEMS Short Course Summary

    To address the stability issues due to the integration of the intermittent and variable renewable energy sources (RESs) into the utility grid, a novel hierarchical transactive energy management system (HTEMS) is proposed. The HTEMS considers the distributed energy resources (DERs) which include RESs, energy storage systems (ESSs) and standby generators at commercial and industrial sites. Microgrids can be used as a platform to incorporate RESs, ESSs and generators and validate the proposed HTEMS for monitoring and control of DERs. The proposed HTEMS can enhance their availability, reliability and efficiency.

    Since May, 2015, the HTEMS research team has been working on the Energy Market Authority (EMA) funded project entitled "Novel Hierarchical Transactive Energy Management System Incorporating Predictive Assessment Techniques for Enhanced Community Market Participation". In this project, a novel microgrid configuration including the model predictive control (MPC) based load frequency control (LFC) strategy with ESSs, a universal hardware-in-loop (HIL) platform, a flexible power quality conditioner (FPQC) for the power quality improvement, and a multiport three-level cascaded converter (MTLCC) for the hybrid energy storage system (HESS) is proposed for the validation of HTEMS, as shown in the figure below.


    Based on the novel microgrid and the proposed HTEMS, a short course will be conducted. In this short course, four presentations related to the overview of the project, MPC-based LFC, HIL, FPQC and MTLCC interfaced HESS will be introduced. The basic concept, development and principle of these technologies will be introduced in detail, and the corresponding demonstration will be conducted on site. The participants are able to understand the principle of operation, current R&D trend and the challenges of the technologies towards the improvement of reliability and power quality of the microgrid. In addition, we will share with the participants the design rules and implementation methodology of the microgrid and HTEMS.
