Optimization of distributed energy resources in an industrial microgrid (2017)

Abstract This paper introduces a model of an industrial microgrid with distributed energy resources (DERs). The model is applied to an existing manufacturing facility in Ireland. The test facility is connected to the main electricity grid but also has onsite generating units; a wind turbine and a combined heat and power (CHP) unit. The model generates a facility load forecast using historical data. A scenario analysis is then performed to investigate the effect of operating DERs, including demand response (DR), on carbon emissions and energy costs in an industrial microgrid. An energy storage component is then introduced and the viability of installing this technology is investigated.
