Modeling and Simulation of a DG-Integrated Intelligent Microgrid (05/2008 – 06/2009)
This is a one-year effort for the simulation of an intelligent and autonomous power system. Physical devices, such as distributed energy resources (DER), distribution network and loads are to be modeled in Distributed Engineering Workstation (DEW) for steady-state analysis and in Matlab/Simulink for transient simulation. Communications among physical devices will be established using agent-based technologies. Information exchanges among DERs, loads and agents will be accomplished via addressable communication interfaces, such as TCP/UDP/IP. The IDAPS microgrid will be simulated and evaluated using data from Virginia Tech Electric Services.
