Thesis title: Design and Control of a Nanogrid for Intelligent Energy Storage and Management

Supervisors: Dylan LU , Weidong XIAO

Thesis abstract:

Nanogrids are small localized integrated energy system consisting of distributed energy resources (such as photovoltaic, fuel cells and wind turbines), power electronic converters, storage devices and loads, operated either connected to the grid or islanded mode. A technical challenge of nanogrid is the operation and control of distributed energy resources within a nanogrid. With correctly designed power electronics converters and controllers nanogrid should be able to fulfill customers’ as well as utilities' needs. The purpose of this project is to design a nanogrid to integrate the distributed energy resources for intelligent control and management of energy distribution within the nanogrid. In addition, control strategies for a nanogrid to operate either in grid-connected mode or in islanded mode will be explored. The developed power conditioners and their controllers will be tested in the laboratory by means of a hardware-prototype.
