Utilising a cluster-based power optimisation in micro grids

B. Born, J. Teuscher, W. Schufft



A cluster-based power optimisation is an effective solution to improve the overall performance of renewable energy systems in a low voltage grid. The system, combined with several decentralized storages could increase the possible amount of integrated photovoltaic systems in a specific low voltage grid. Furthermore, the optimisation algorithm could shift energy from the times points with very high generation to high load in the grid.
