  • We consider the optimal stochastic control problem for home energy systems with solar and energy storage devices when the demand is realized from the grid. The demand is subject to Brownian motions with both drift and variance parameters modulated by a continuous-time Markov chain that represents the regime of electricity price. We model the systems as pure stochastic differential equation models, and then we follow the completing square technique to solve the stochastic home energy management problem. The effectiveness of the efficiency of the proposed approach is validated through a simulation example. For practical situations with constraints consistent to thosemore » studied here, our results imply the proposed framework could reduce the electricity cost from short-term purchase in peak hour market.« less
  • This poster provides a high-level overview of high penetrations of home energy managements systems under time-based electricity prices.
  • In the selection of the best alternative solution to reduce energy consumption in building one is confronted with at least two basic questions: how to choose the most cost-effective project and how to make a consistent choice even when the future of energy escalation rates is unknown. This paper shows that the computation of the marginal cost-effectiveness of any project against each other is a suitable solution to the first question. Concerning the second point, application of decision making analysis provides an attractive solution assuming that if it is impossible to know the exact values of future energy escalation ratesmore » it is at least possible to define an internal in which those values should be located. In this paper an original approach to assist the decision process is presented. Basic theory of decision making analysis is briefly summarized and then applied to the selection of the best project from a set of eight feasible solutions.« less
  • Distributed energy resources, such as renewable energy resources (wind, solar), energy storage and demand response, can be used to complement conventional generators. The uncertainty and variability due to high penetration of wind makes reliable system operations and controls challenging, especially in isolated systems. In this paper, an optimal control strategy is proposed to coordinate energy storage and diesel generators to maximize wind penetration while maintaining system economics and normal operation performance. The goals of the optimization problem are to minimize fuel costs and maximize the utilization of wind while considering equipment life of generators and energy storage. Model predictive controlmore » (MPC) is used to solve a look-ahead dispatch optimization problem and the performance is compared to an open loop look-ahead dispatch problem. Simulation studies are performed to demonstrate the efficacy of the closed loop MPC in compensating for uncertainties and variability caused in the system.« less
