This Sino-Danish project deals with research, development and demonstration of a full-scale microgrid. The work will be carried out by two highly rated Universities, Aalborg University (Denmark) and Tsinghua University (China), in cooperation with Kamstrup, leader of smartmeters and smargrid ready components in Denmark and the company Shanghai Solar Energy Science & Technology Co. Ltd, which is topping a photovoltaics and power electronics market in China.
The objective of this project is to develop a demonstrative, research-oriented platform, which aims to ease the integration of Distributed Generation (DG) units, hierarchical and multilevel control strategies, and multiple Microgrid configurations with the help of standard-based communication technology, resulting in a set of complete microgrid solutions.
The proposed solutions will facilitate planning and operational analyses. Robust stability and power quality by the proper control of the power electronics interfaces and the integration of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) and smart-grid ready communication technologies will be considered as well. The project will serve to service and support innovation processes in companies and research programs within the identified technology areas and clusters based on two levels:
- System level: Developing, testing and assessment of the microgrids performance, including real-time optimization, control design and monitoring technologies.
- Component level: Developing, testing and validating the performance of individual technology components in an integrated energy system perspective.
The plan of this project is structured into 5 frameworks:
1. Microgrid design
2. Advanced hierarchical control and power quality in grid-connected/islanded microgrids
3. Communication and SCADA
4. Energy management system
5. Microgrid test and validation
