This paper focuses on the development of a control strategy for integration of wind energy conversion systems (WECS) into the electrical distribution networks with particular attention to the combined provision of energy and ancillary services. Typically, a WECS is composed by a variable speed wind turbine coupled with a direct driven permanent magnet(More)
The aim of this paper is to describe the Smart Polygeneration Microgrid (SPM), which is being constructed at the Savona Campus of the Genoa University, also thanks to funding from the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (amount 2.4 Million Euros). Specifically, a detailed model of the grid is presented and an optimization problem is(More)
The combined use of multitaper estimation and wavelet thresholding has proved very attractive for achieving the true power spectrum of signals peculiar to digital wireless communication systems, and thus carrying out accurate and repeatable power measurements. Nevertheless, the computational burden induced is too heavy. The paper presents a GRID computing(More)
The aim of this paper is to propose a MPC (Model Predictive Control)-based hierarchical architecture for microgrids characterized by photovoltaics and storage systems. The first part of the work is focused on the storage model's identification during the charge and discharge phases with the aim of defining appropriate constraints to be inserted in the(More)
The present paper aims at defining a simplified but effective model of a thermal network that links the thermal power generation with the resulting temperature time profile in a heated or refrigerated environment. For this purpose, an equivalent electric circuit is proposed together with an experimental procedure to evaluate its input parameters. The paper(More)
The paper proposes to model a thermal network by using a simple equivalent electrical circuit, in order to easily predict the thermal power generation once fixed the desired temperature. The validation has been performed on the Savona Campus Smart Polygeneration Microgrid (SPM): identifying the value of the parameters involved in the model by minimizing the(More)
