Analysis of a Hybrid System for Decentralized Power Generation

H. Hinz
Abstract—Traditionally a centralized power generation based on fossil fuels is common. To meet the greenhouse targets a transition to low carbon power generation is required. This could be achieved either by nuclear or renewable energy. Due to the concerns regarding nuclear safety and the problematic disposal of long live radioactive waste many countries move towards renewable energies. Thus a change to a decentralized power generation will occur. The objective of this paper is to describe the development of a hybrid system for a decentralized power generation. It is shown that the proposed design of a combined heat and power plant and a photovoltaic array including an electric energy storage device will establish a future oriented technology. A method is introduced which enables the study and optimization of the power management.

Index Terms—Decentralized power generation, lithium-ion battery, modeling, photovoltaic.
