Coordinated Control of Multi-Type Energy Storage for Wind Power Fluctuation Suppression
AbstractThe fluctuations of wind power impact the stable operation of a power system as its penetration grows high. Energy storage may be a potential solution to suppress these fluctuations and has drawn much attention in recent years. As the time scale of wind power fluctuations is in a range of seconds to hours, multi-type energy storage with complementary characteristics, such as the combination of energy-type storage devices (ESD) and power-type storage device (PSD), may be technically and economically feasible to suppress multi-time-scale wind power fluctuations. Therefore, system control is very important when the power allocation among each of the energy storage units is considered. In this paper, a novel coordinated control strategy based on model predictive control (MPC) was proposed for wind power fluctuation suppression, which employs MPC for the total power required for the whole energy storage system and then allocates it between ESD and PSD with the low-pass filter algorithm (LFA) method. Due to the predictive feature of MPC, the power requirement of the energy storage system can be obtained with little time delay, which means less energy is needed. The effectiveness of the proposed control strategy was verified in a time-domain simulation system. The influence of wind speed conditions and LFA time constant on the wind/storage system were further discussed. View Full-Text
