Abstract

This paper focuses on an efficient Energy Management System (EMS) developed within the European project e-Gotham. Relying on previous results on modeling and controlling microgrids operations, we propose an optimal control strategy to manage the operations of an utility grid. The goal of the proposed strategy is to minimize the operations, maintenance and generations costs balancing a time-varying power demand. The overall problem is stated as a Mixed Integer Linear Programming (MILP) problem. A Model Predictive Control (MPC) technique is used to compensate the system uncertainties. As case of study a residential, an industrial and a tertiary pilot are considered to test the proposed control strategy.
