  • Partitioning approach for large wind farms: active power control for optimizing power reserve 

    Siniscalchi Minna, Sara; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Bianchi, Fernando Daniel; Prada Gil, Mikel de; De Schutter, Bart (IEEE Press, 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Nowadays, large wind farms are expected to guarantee stability of the electrical grid contributing with ancillary services, such as frequency support. To this end, wind farm controllers must set the power generation of ...
  • A multi-objective predictive control strategy for enhancing primary frequency support with wind farms

    Nowadays, wind power plants (WPPs) should be able to dynamically change their power output to meet the power demanded by the transmission system operators. When the wind power generation exceeds the power demand, the WPP ...
  • Configurations of model predictive control to exploit energy flexibility in building thermal loads 

    Péan, Thibaut; Salom Tormo, Jaume; Costa Castelló, Ramon (IEEE Press, 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    A model predictive control (MPC) framework is developed in the present study, with the final objective to improve the energy flexibility of building thermal loads through demand-side management. Three different configurations ...
  • A simplified model for the dynamic analysis and power generation of a floating offshore wind turbine 

    Lerch, Markus; Prada Gil, Mikel de; Molins i Borrell, Climent (EDP Sciences, 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents a simplified model for the dynamic analysis of a floating off-shore wind turbine (FOWT), which can be suitable for early feasibility and pre-engineering studies, where the complete system has to modeled ...
  • A wind farm operational strategy for primary frequency support optimization 

    Siniscalchi Minna, Sara; Bianchi, Fernando Daniel; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Prada Gil, Mikel de (2017)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    With the aim of distributing the total power required at the wind farm control level for each wind turbine, we proposed a multi-objective model predictive control scheme able to (i) ensure the tracking of the power demanded ...

    The use of information technology services is increasing and causes a rising energy demand of data centres. In order to cover the requirements linked to this effect and respond to the energetic and environmental goals, fossil ...
  • Optimal location of fast charging stations in Barcelona: a flow-capturing approach 

    Cruz Zambrano, Miguel; Corchero García, Cristina; Igualada González, Lucía; Bernardo, Valeria (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The aim of this paper is to find the optimal location of electric vehicle (EV) fast charging stations by means of two methodologies: a classical flow-capturing optimization model involving only mobility needs, and ...
  • Potential externalities savings due to electric vehicle smart charge 

    Benveniste Pérez, Gabriela; Corchero García, Cristina; Cruz Zambrano, Miguel (2015)
    Conference report
