  • MODELING ALTERNATIVE SOURCES OF ENERGY

    A detailed simulation of small power plants may be a very cost???effective solution, and very often several subsystems of a power plant might be inappropriate, difficult to find, or very expensive, like photovoltaic (PV) panels and fuel cells. This chapter discusses the most usual small electrical power plants such as wind, photovoltaic, fuel cells, and primary movers associated with batteries. It describes a model of a permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG) which is mechanically connected to a wind power turbine. In order to design integrated battery???based power electronics, a very good battery behavioral model is required which may include several parameters like state of charge (SOC), internal pressure, and so on. The current point of the SOC curve is estimated in order to be used as input information for a decision maker that is integrated with the energy management control of the renewable energy source used in the grid connected or stand???alone system.

  • PV Array Modeling at Cell Level under Non???homogeneous Conditions

    When the photovoltaic (PV) string is simulated at a module level, it is assumed that the irradiation level received by all the cells in the module is the same, and also that those cells are perfectly equal in terms of parameters. Unfortunately, PV string modeling level does not allow the reverse behavior of the cells to be examined, it is perhaps the best compromise between accuracy and computation speed, but it does not account for the hot???spot phenomena that the cells might be subject to in some operating conditions. The cell model must therefore be improved so that it takes into account cell behavior at negative voltage values. The subcell model should be useful for lowering the granularity level of the representation, thus allowing it to describe if a single cell is affected by a partial shadowing or not. The objective is to achieve a simulation of such operating conditions by an equivalent circuit model.

  • PV Arrays in Non???homogeneous Conditions

    The design of any photovoltaic (PV) system is based on an awareness of the phenomena that might lead a decrease in plant power production, in real conditions, over its whole lifetime. Mismatching is one of the main sources of power reductions in a PV system's lifetime. The literature describes the closed loop existing between mismatching and cell aging, thus revealing the amplification of the detrimental effects of uneven aging of the cells. This chapter analyzes the main sources of mismatching and describes their effects on power production using data from the current literature. Bypass diodes are key components when the PV array is forced to work in mismatched conditions because of external or internal factors. They allow more power to be extracted from the PV array and to limit the probability of permanent damage to the cells. In some cases, modules are shipped from the factory with some bypass diode failures.
