Conference Record - IAS Annual Meeting (IEEE Industry Applications Society)


In view of the recurrent power outages caused by various crises in recent years, such as high-impact natural catastrophes, the power and energy supply needs to be more resilient as well as affordable. The goal of this study is to present a grid-tied microgrid that will deliver continuous energy for both electrical and heating load demand at the lowest possible cost. The mixed-integer linear programming (MILP) based model optimizes multiple energy sources-PV, battery and combined heat and power (CHP) unit and runs during an extended blackout condition at different times of the year. Multiple simulation results show the model's efficacy and resiliency in sustaining a continuous energy supply in the presence of power cuts, which also provides significant financial savings.
