Abstract

The design of a new power management tool able to manage the power flow from different renewable energy sources is proposed in this paper. PV and wind are the primary power sources for the system, and a fuel cell with electrolyser and batteries are used as reserve. The designed controller purpose is to manage power flows among the different energy systems and to assure a continuous supply of load. Modelling and simulation of the various energy sources of distributed generation (DG) systems including wind turbine (WT), fuel cell-electrolyser (FC), photovoltaic (PV) and battery are developed. The coordination controller is designed based on the criteria of providing the load demand and the excess power is used either to produce hydrogen through electrolyser for the FC or to store it in battery. Simulation is carried out in MATLAB/Simulink environment and the results show satisfactory performance of the coordination scheme to satisfy the load requirements.
