Controller developed by SIS on a redundant Siemens S7-1500 platform ensures the monitoring and control of the elements so as to make efficient use of the available generation and storage resources and to optimize the amount of energy taken from the national network according to cost.
The Smart Microgrid Controller project was implemented by SIS SA, as a beneficiary, and is funded by Innovation Norway through SME’s Growth Romania program.
Funded with support from the EEA and Norway Grants by Innovation Norway program, the project contributes to reducing the carbon footprint and smart use of renewable energy for an office building in Constanța.
dedicated microgrid control structure which allow to emphasize the advantages of using microgrids in increasing energy efficiency by upgrading smartness of buildings, and also a decision-based optimization algorithm for real-time power balancing, whose effectiveness is demonstrated by simulation.
The Smart Microgrid Controller project has successfully completed the fifth stage, now at a point where the pilot application is at TRL 5, as its main components have been installed and configured, and testing and evaluation of the application for acquisition , remote data storage and monitoring is nearing completion.
We support the integration of microgrids through an optimal control strategy
A controller developed by SIS on a redundant Siemens S7-1500 platform ensures the monitoring and control of the elements, so as to efficiently use the available generation and storage resources and to optimize, depending on the cost, the amount of energy taken from the national network. In the Monsson case study, advanced control algorithms were used for the SIS microgrid controller solution, which go beyond the usual functions in the global controller market.
– electricity produced from other renewable sources: 1.5 MWh / year
– estimated annual reduction of CO2 emissions: 475 kg CO2 / year
– installed capacity to produce energy from other renewable energy sources: 127 kWp
– additional income from the sale of surplus energy
During this stage main efforts were concentrated on two activities: remote platform development for modelling and simulation, and microgrid pilot use-case design and development. We continued our research regarding various possible software tools, could use to implement the remote platform by evaluating their technical specifications, participating at webinars and online meetings, installing demo software, where available, to see how available functions respond to stakeholders needs, checking outputs and interoperability features. We concluded that complex tools are usually hosted in cloud environments and can be used on a subscription basis. Under the conditions SIS team decide to choose a solution based on several software modules which can be integrated to respond to requirements. SIS teams working on the data acquisition and visualisation module, defining the screen templates, building the graphical elements, adding trends, logs and alarms.
