Abstract

The development of smart grid infrastructure has opened new opportunities for microgrids to operate proactively and supply their incorporated loads with local generation. This capability could be improved more efficiently through utilisation of available distributed energy resources (DERs) and modernisation of the grid characteristics. In this study, a robust rolling horizon architecture is developed for real-time energy management of islanded micogrids (IMGs), while the adaptation of network configuration is considered as a potential option for improving the system characteristics. In addition to dispatchable and non-dispatchable units, the application of plug-in electric vehicles in the grid is analysed taking into account the driving pattern of such mobile storage units. The proposed problem is modelled as mixed integer conic programming and tested on IEEE 33-bus test system using general algebraic modelling system (GAMS) software. The simulation results show the effectiveness of the proposed model in dealing with real-time energy management with lower computation time, while the significance of network reconfiguration and electric vehicles in improving the characteristics of IMGs is obvious in the outputs.
