Abstract

Isolated regions and remote islands are facing problems such as imported fossil-fuel dependency, increasing electricity prices, and low electricity quality. Isolated microgrids technologies which integrate large scale of renewable energy resources, energy storages, flexible loads, traditional fossil-fuel generators and advanced electric electrical devices have been seen as the answer the above problems. In addition, a closed-loop based energy management operation framework is needed to accommodate the fluctuated renewable energy generation with a comprehensive energy management optimization strategy considering integer variables/discrete constraints and complex operation constraints in generators and energy storage models. To this end, this paper proposed a model predictive control (MPC) based energy management and operation framework for isolated microgrids where the optimal energy management for the microgrid is formulated as a mixed integer quadratic programming problem (MIQP). Numerical results demonstrate the effectiveness of our approach.
