Good morning, i hope you're all well.
I am a third year undergrad, currently under taking my final year project. I am tasked with a report on the smart grid and some form of simulation to validate my findings.
I'm aware you can't do this project for me and nor would i ask anybody too, however, i would like some pointers on maybe how i can get started ?
I found a sample model titelled power_microgrid in the mathworks examples, but as it has no supporting documentation and being honest i'm a novice i've had a hard time understanding some of the control systems associated with the model.
My project area focuses particularly on the microgrid and how several of these so called microgrids could combine to realize the smart grid.
There should be a particular focus on an energy management system, renewables and a storage component e.g. battery.
My goal simulation wise would be to show how a microgrid controller would supply loads with energy stored in a battery where possible and then power could be pulled from the grid during peak hours where there is sufficient charge stored in a battery. If i can do this, i would like to possibly add some real time data, load patterns, weather conditions and somehow the system would be able to determine the best way to supply power to loads, e.g. if a day is cloudy and insufficient energy can be supplied by PV, grid supplies power.
Again, i want to state i'm not asking anybody to do this for me, but i'm really struggling to get the ball rolling, so if anybody has a good starting point or a tutorial on this particular area it would be greatly appreciated.
