Aims of the study

  • Illustrate the operation of a real energy hub

  • Optimize the management strategy of the different prime movers to satisfy the energy demand

  • Two different layouts, with and without a conventional stratified thermal storage

Laboratory

SAVONA

ECoMP software

  • Modular structure (48 modules)

  • Each component described by

  • subroutines containing:

  • - off design performance curves

  • - functions for capital costs

  • - variable costs

  • - mass and energy flows

ECoMP optimization strategy

Fuel cost

The cost functions to minimize are:

Electricity cost

“Virtual” cost

Percentage loads of the prime movers (mGT, ICE) have been chosen as decision variables

mGT

ICE

Thermal storage model

PRIME MOVER

  • Virtual costs are associated to emptying and filling operations

  • Virtual terms promote filling operation and prime movers nominal conditions

  • Penalty costs associated to overload and total emptying conditions

Filling up cost

Emptying out cost

Conclusions

  • The Energy Hub was analysed via a thermo-economic approach

  • The impact of thermal storage was investigated, quantifying the impact on the system behaviour, both in energy and economic terms

  • Thermal storage allows to decrease the fuel consumption of 6% and to increase profits of 10%. However, such results are highly dependent on the energy demands.

  • In this work we use a simple marked-based approach, if we use a MPC to evaluate the rule of the thermal storage we could have an increase profits of 44%.

  • On going work

  • Implementation and testing of advanced predictive control algorithms

  • Comparison of different storage technologies (electrical, hot thermal, cold thermal)

WECoMP

Demo version available

WECoMP is a software developed by TPG at University of Genoa for time-dependent thermo-economic analysis of energy systems

  • 48 Modules available:

    • Cogenerative

    • Conventional

    • Renewable generators

    • Storage

  • Two optimization levels:

    • Management strategy optimization

    • Size optimization
