Abstract:

This paper addresses the microgrid energy management problem within a coherent framework of control tools based on Mixed-Integer Linear Programming (MILP) and constrained Model Predictive Control (MPC). These help characterize the microgrid components’ dynamics and the overall system control architecture. A fault tolerant strategy is considered in order to ensure the proper amount of energy in the storage devices such that (together with the utility grid) the essential consumer demand is reliably covered. Simulation results on a particular microgrid architecture validate the proposed approach.
