CHEETAH WEBINAR - Simulation of heterogeneous PV systems and storage in self-consumption scenarios

Webinar - Streaming and interaction with the speaker available until January, 15th 2018

Dr. Ricardo Alonso, TECNALIA

 

Abstract

There are a large number of software programs currently available to simulate various solar cell technologies at processing stages from material modelling to complete systems. CHEETAH KEP has already offered by LNEGUPM and IFE a series of webinars focussed in introducing modelling tools applied to PV technology.

This  webinar complements other webinars by going through a couple of examples to deepen in the modeling of heterogeneous PV systems and use of storage in PV systems under self-consumption schemes.

The structure of both examples proposed by lecture 1 and lecture 2 are very similar:

  • Firstly, the problem to be simulated will be introduced
  • In second place, a presentation of the models used to modelling the specific categories of PV application is proposed
  • Finally an example as case study or practical case is showned

The webinar presentations address:

  • Modeling heterogeneous PV systems: Simulation of Distributed Maximum Power Point Tracking (DMPPT) topologies. Simulation of performance in static regime of DMPPT topologies in order to analyze their capability to reduce mismatching losses as a function of system design parameters. 
  • Simulation of PV storage systems for self-consumption. Long-term simulation of PV storage systems for self-consumption in order to analyze their profitability as a function of main design parameters and different energy management strategies.
