Email: alvaro.ortega-manjavacas@ucdconnect.ie


Biography:  Alvaro Ortega graduated from The Higher Technical School of Industrial Engineering, UCLM (Spain) -  in 2013 with the Electrical and Electronic Itinerary and graduated with honors in his Final Project. His FP was about modeling and dynamic analysis of energy storage systems based on compressed air.  He commenced his PhD in UCD in September 2013, within the Electricity Research Centre (ERC).

Project:  This work proposes a generalized linear model to represent the dynamic behavior of different energy storage devices. A comparison of the performance of several storage technologies regulated considering different control strategies is also provided. Finally, power system stability analysis is carried out considering stochastic processes and the inclusion of storage devices.

 

Keywords:  energy storage system, renewable energy, stochastic processes, modeling, control, stability
