Abstract : This paper presents optimal scheduling of a gridconnected microgrid with grid, solar PV system, and wind energy
system acting as sources and a local water reservoir actingas a
storage system. Using mathematical models of solar PV, wind
energy system, load profile, and pumped storage system, the
optimization problem is formulated to minimize thedaily
operating cost taking into account all the constraints. Using a
modified linear programming algorithm based on varying price
weight, an optimum schedule is obtained and the minimum
operating cost is determined.Comparison of operating cost is
carried out based on all possible combinations of available
sources and storage system. Cases of maximum initial reservoir
volume and minimum initial reservoir volume were considered
for each combination of sources and storage system. Finally, by
analyzing the simulation results and cost calculations, share of
different renewable energy sources, grid, and storage system in
meeting the load isobtained.
