• Summary

    This project consists of two parts: implementation and performances study:
    Implementation part: Implementation of interfaced renewable energy systems (smart grid) to obtain sustainable energy supply. PV system and a Wind turbine (DC generator set) are interfaced to meet the electrical needs of a Caravan prototype. The thermal loads are supplied by a solar water heater and by an auxiliary heating coil. We aim to obtain sustainable energy system especially during the change in solar irradiation and the wind speed fluctuations. This is achieved by using control systems, power electronic devices, storage and environmental forecasting. First, we design the PV system to power the electrical loads and excess energy will be stored in batteries to be used later on, while a solar collector is used to heat water needed in the caravan. During days of autonomy, stored energy in batteries will be discharged to supply the electrical loads and the auxiliary electrical heater to keep the water heated in the tank. Performance study part:
    It studies the characteristics of each renewable resource independently and their performance after integrating the system.
    It also studies the effect of changing the loads on the whole system by using simulation programs: to observe how the different renewable stations are interfaced together. With the aid of weather forecasting we can predict the output energies from different stations and finally control them to obtain the sustainability.
