An effective power management strategy for a wind–diesel–hydrogen-based remote area power supply system to meet fluctuating demands under generation uncertainty

Journal Article


Abstract


  • This paper addresses power management strategies,

    including technical issues and control methodologies, for a winddominated

    hybrid remote area power supply (RAPS) system.

    The system consists of a doubly fed induction generator, a diesel

    generator, a hydrogen-based generation scheme, and mains loads.

    The goal is to maximize power extraction from the wind generator

    under generation uncertainty. For active power management, a

    hydrogen-based generation scheme consisting of an electrolyser

    and a fuel cell system is integrated to the RAPS system. Developed

    control strategies contribute to achieve the following objectives:

    1) load side voltage and frequency regulation; 2) maximum power

    extraction from wind; and 3) regulating diesel generator operation

    at low load conditions. Simulation studies with a real-life data

    set are used to evaluate the proposed architecture and prove the

    control objectives, and it has been observed that all the proposed

    objectives are met within satisfactory limits.
