National Postgraduate Student Energy Awards 2014
by Australian Institute of Energy In conjunction with All-Energy Conference and Exhibition

Melbourne, 18-20 October 2014

Pouya Ghadimi presented his poster titled as “Energy Monitoring and Smart Grid Application in Manufacturing”. The poster received Encouragement Award at the competition.

Project Summary:

This study covers both the business and technical aspects of on-site energy systems that should not only guarantee economical operation of integrated technologies but also assure required reliability and quality. This is achieved through identification of existing design, integration and operation challenges of on-site energy generation systems in industry. The latter encompass technical findings and existing shortcomings of the application of CHP technology within the studied manufacturing plant. Moreover particular problem modelling, which not only covers mechanical integrity of the components, but also address specific real-time application requirements, is achieved. The latter is simulated and tested for our case study, which illustrates potential of improvement and applicability compared to existing operation management approaches. Finally proposed approach would guarantee system reliability, unit commitment, and optimal operational objectives (operational cost, environmental impact and primary resource consumption) in a continuous manner. The latter should encompass not only energy demand dynamics but also intermittency of renewable energy technologies, which can play a vital role to result in their uptake at this sector.
