Extended Model Predictive Control Software Framework for Real-Time Local Management of Complex Energy Systems



Regarding the requirements of the future electrical grid due to high share of renewable distributed generation, smart energy management systems (EMS) are necessary to integrate the rapid development of ICT technologies and new sensor and actuator technologies. This thesis deals with the challenges of Model Predictive Control (MPC)-based EMS and introduces the concept of extended MPC framework that includes ICT aspects of the integration of new sensor and actuator technologies, forecasting methods, data management, flexible optimization model definition and solvers integration in consideration of user needs and deployment requirements in real systems. The extended MPC framework is validated through its deployment in three different use cases: as discrete and stochastic MPC in real test sites and linked to a power flow simulator.
