Findings from National Research Council in the Area of Industry Applications Described (Improving Grid Integration of Hybrid PV-Storage Systems Through a Suitable Energy Management Strategy)

Electronics Newsweekly

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Electronics Newsweekly -- Current study results on Business - Industry Applications have been published. According to news reporting from Palermo, Italy, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "This paper proposes a method to reshape the daily grid-injected photovoltaic (PV) power profile while keeping the same energy amount. In particular, an energy management algorithm is used for reducing the peak-to-mean ratio (PMR) of the injected power profile."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from National Research Council, "This method allows for a better integration of hybrid PV-storage systems into the power grid since it helps avoiding or at least reducing the need for curtailment measures aimed at preventing grid instability. Furthermore, it is compatible with negotiation schemes that require transmitting the expected power profile to the grid manager one day ahead. Thus, a better market participation of PV producers can be achieved. Five different scenarios, with varying system parameters, have been simulated over a one-year period, showing a reduction of the PMR up to 64% and a reduction of the power ramp rate up to 48%."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "These results confirm the effectiveness of the proposed approach."
