Aim: Maximise clean energy penetration from grid-connected micro-generation systems through the development of community based microgrid solutions with special focus on consumer/prosumer engagement to empower energy citizens.
- Identify the most suitable microgrid architectures to maximise the clean energy penetration from the prosumer end.
- Identify the local energy markets framework for the smart communities with consumers’ active participation.
- Identify innovative integration mechanisms for PV, EV, ESS, HP in microgrid structures.
- Designing of microgrid structures for intelligent communities
- Integration and control of DERs in MiFIC
- Local Energy Market framework for the MiFIC
- Modelling the MiFIC with LEM
- Real-time performance study
