Smart cities are aimed at connecting urban infrastructures to enhance the efficiency of their operation and services while taking sustainability goals into consideration. As a result of the intermittency associated with renewable generation, smart city systems such as smart grids and microgrids may not be able to ensure the security of supply. This...
Article
Due to its highest gravimetric energy density, H2 has been regarded as the preferred clean-energy carrier, with potentially environmentally-friendly production through the solar-assisted WS. Since human activities generate enormous amounts of WW, H2 production from this new resource has gained attention as an emergent technology. This paper address...

The PVT technology combines solar PV and solar thermal in the same PVT panel. In this way, both electricity and heat are produced by the PVT panel. Compared to the PV technology and the solar heating technology the PVT technology is in the early market stage with only few small and weak industries active. Best practices for the PVT technology, whic...

Chapter
For quite some time, the work performed by engineers has often been viewed as purely technical and without social implications. This is not only common among people outside of engineering, but also among engineers themselves. The work of engineers in modern society has major implications and effects at the social, economic, and environmental levels...

Multiple microgrids can operate when interconnected and form a cluster of microgrids, in which each individual system benefits from this cooperation during grid-connected and islanded mode. Therefore, the contents of this paper address the concept of microgrid clusters by providing a review of and insight into the literature research made towards t...
Conference Paper
During islanded operation mode, microgrids should be able to cooperate with other neighbouring microgrids and an internal energy market may facilitate this cooperation. Therefore, this paper addresses the concept of microgrid clusters by providing a case study to evaluate the cooperation among five industrial microgrids operating in a cluster durin...

Chapter
A microgrid embraces a low-voltage (LV) distribution grid with distributed energy resources (DER) and controllable loads. In the last years, there has been a growing awareness in exploiting microgrids to facilitate DER integration in electric power systems as well as to improve reliability and power quality in distribution grids. A microgrid can op...

Technologies that improve the performance of different PV s...
Conference Paper
The content of this paper addresses the concept of net zero energy in buildings, focusing on the definition that accounts for energy losses by converting each energy type used by the building to source energy. It presents a sample of source energy conversion factors commonly used in the United States, Canada and in some European countries. In addit...
Chapter
In almost all countries, electricity reform has been a part of wider policies towards a liberal market economy. The former vertically integrated electricity utilities were restructured and unbundled by a reform process that introduced competition into generation, wholesale, and retail segments of the industry. The transmission and distribution busi...
Chapter
Over the last few years, the need for electricity has increased in households as new and different appliances are progressively introduced. This increased demand for electricity raises a concern to many developed and developing countries since it is a human’s responsibility to assure a sustainable future. Energy demand management can be an effectiv...

Full-text available
Several control schemes specifically designed to operate inverter-based industrial microgrids during voltage sags have been recently proposed. This paper first classifies these control schemes in three categories and then performs a comparative analysis of them. Representative control schemes of each category are selected, described and used to ide...

This paper analyses the electricity generation through a mini-hydro plant (MHP) and a photovoltaic (PV) system particularly sized for a location in Tomar (Portugal). A system based on this energy mix is adopted to produce hydrogen (H 2) and oxygen (O 2) by electrolysis of water, at high pressure, for energy storage purposes. Some features of the di...

Article
MicroGrids represent a new paradigm for the operation of distribution systems and there are several advantages as well as challenges regarding their development. One of the advantages is related with the participation of MicroGrid agents in electricity markets and in the provision of ancillary services. This paper describes two optimization models...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper describes a mathematical model and the developed solution algorithm to solve an integrated active / reactive dispatch while retaining competitive aspects. The main drive for this research was the recognition that the introduction of competitive mechanisms lead to a certain extent to a decoupling between active and reactive power scheduli...
Article
Full-text available
The restructuring of power systems has often originated the organization of power system operation planning in a set of chronological sequence of activities that are reasonably decoupled. This means that the Market Operator purely economic schedule together with bilateral contracts is conveyed to the System Operator to be validated from a technical...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper presents a mathematical formulation for the active/reactive dispatch in electricity markets, recognizing that the typical sequential activities organized in terms of pool markets and the dispatch of ancillary services may lead to economic inefficiencies or technical difficulties. The developed model admits that it is known the purely eco...
Conference Paper
Ancillary Services play an important role in power systems since they are crucial to ensure the security and quality of operation. However, this issue is sometimes forgotten and power systems tend to be analysed only from the point of view of electricity markets to schedule active power. In several countries, active and reactive dispatches were dec...
Conference Paper
In the scope of the reregulation process of the electric sector, both competitive pool markets and contract mechanisms at the generation and commercialization levels have been emerging. At the wholesale level, and apart from pool structures and bilateral contracts, there are hybrid models in which these two types of structures coexist. In any case,...
