Book Description :

The most important environmental challenge today's society is facing is to reduce the effects of CO2 emissions and global warming. Such an ambitious challenge can only be achieved through a holistic approach, capable of tackling the problem from a multidisciplinary point of view. One of the core technologies called to play a critical role in this approach is the use of energy storage systems. These systems enable, among other things, the balancing of the stochastic behavior of Renewable Sources and Distributed Generation in modern Energy Systems; the efficient supply of industrial and consumer loads; the development of efficient and clean transport; and the development of Nearly-Zero Energy Buildings (nZEB) and intelligent cities. Hybrid Energy Storage Systems (HESS) consist of two (or more) storage devices with complementary key characteristics, that are able to behave jointly with better performance than any of the technologies considered individually. Recent developments in storage device technologies, interface systems, control and monitoring techniques, or visualization and information technologies have driven the implementation of HESS in many industrial, commercial and domestic applications. This Special Issue focuses on the analysis, design and implementation of hybrid energy storage systems across a broad spectrum, encompassing different storage technologies (including electrochemical, capacitive, mechanical or mechanical storage devices), engineering branches (power electronics and control strategies; energy engineering; energy engineering; chemistry; modelling, simulation and emulation techniques; data analysis and algorithms; social and economic analysis; intelligent and Internet-of-Things (IoT) systems; and so on.), applications (energy systems, renewable energy generation, industrial applications, transportation, Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) and critical load supply, etc.) and evaluation and performance (size and weight benefits, efficiency and power loss, economic analysis, environmental costs, etc.).

Book Description :

The challenge of managing the present and projected electricity energy needs along with targets of mitigating CO2 emissions leads to the need for energy systems to reduce reliance on fossil fuels and rely on more energy from renewable sources. The integration of more renewable energy technologies to meet present and future electricity demand leads to more challenges in matching the trade-o between economic, resilient, reliable and environmentally friendly solutions. Energy storage technologies can provide temporal resilience to energy systems by solving these challenges. Energy storage systems can improve the reliability of energy systems by reducing the mismatch between supply and demand due to the intermittency of renewable energy sources. This thesis presents a comprehensive analysis of various energy storage systems, analyzing their speci c characteristics including capital cost, e ciency, lifetime and their usefulness in di erent applications. Di erent hybrid energy systems are designed to analyze the impacts of renewable and non-renewable energy sources and energy storage systems in residential on-grid and o -grid buildings and districts. An optimization analysis is performed to determine which technology combinations provide the most economic solution to meet electric energy demands. The optimization analysis is solved using the "energy hub" model formulation which optimizes energy system operation and capacity of di erent technologies. Di erent energy systems can be optimized by using energy hub model, including multiple input energy carriers that are converted to multiple energy outputs. The analysis in this thesis employs a building simulation tool to model residential building, and real data sets to explore the di erent electricity pro le e ects on the results. The environmental e ect of hybrid energy systems comparing with base cases of conventional energy systems or grid connection are also analyzed. Results show that the feasibility of energy storage systems is a factor of di erent variables including capital cost of energy converters and energy storage systems, cost of input streams (grid electricity in on-grid systems and diesel fuel in o -grid systems, energy demand pro les and availability of renewable energy sources. The on-grid single and district buildings do not select storage technologies at current costs due to cheap grid electricity. Reduction in the cost of renewable energy technologies and/or energy storage systems (e.g. Li-ion batteries) results in more energy storage installations. In o -grid systems (single buildings and districts), Li-ion battery and pumped hydro are the main storage systems that can balance the daily and seasonal energy demands.

Highlights: Using boreholes for minimization of farming electricity cost in a dynamic electricity pricing environment. The operation of PV, Pico hydro turbines and PHS is optimally scheduled. The feasibility of the proposed model is analysed in South African context. Abstract: A model of electricity cost minimization is proposed which can be implemented in small farming activities where boreholes are present for water supply. In this case, a hybrid system composed of solar photovoltaic and pico hydro supplied by a pumped storage system are used minimize the electricity cost in a dynamic electricity pricing environment. The varying price of electricity, the load demand, the reservoir state of water stored as well as the solar resource at any instant determine the optimal power flow from the different power sources to the load; these are the control variables to be optimised with the aim of reducing the power consumed from the grid. The optimization problem can be solved using linear programming. The simulation results can be used to investigate the impact and benefit of the proposed model on the electricity cost reduction of small loads in the South African farming sector.
