Abstract:With the increasing application of distributed energy resources and novel information technologies in the electricity infrastructure, innovative possibilities for incorporating the demand side more actively in power system operation are enabled. At the residential level energy costs could be reduced with intelligent price-based control concepts (demand response). A promising, controllable, residential distributed generation technology is micro cogeneration (micro-CHP). Micro- CHP is an energy efficient technology that simultaneously provides heat and electricity to households. This paper presents a detailed model of a household using a proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) micro-CHP system in conjunction with heat storage options to fulfill its heat and part of its electricity demand. Furthermore, a decentralized controller based on a model predictive control (MPC) strategy is proposed. MPC can take benefit of future knowledge in control actions and can lead to better system performance. Simulation input data are also discussed.
