A bio-fuel power generation system with hybrid energy storage under a dynamic programming operation strategy.

Chen, X.-P. and Wang, Y.-D. and Wu, Q.-M. (2019) 'A bio-fuel power generation system with hybrid energy storage under a dynamic programming operation strategy.', IEEE access., 7 . pp. 64966-64977.


This paper proposes a dynamic programming (DP)-based operational strategy for a biofuel distributed generation system with hybrid energy storage (BDG-HES). The proposed system consists of a biofuel-powered engine and a gen-set, six battery packs, a super-capacitor module, and four power electronic converters. It is primarily designed to meet the electrical demand of a typical UK family while the energy storage system can reduce the operating duration of the engine so as to improve the fuel efficiency. The DP, as an optimization strategy, is used to determine the operational scheme for the BDG-HES. In this paper, four case studies are carried out based on real-world measurement data. The test results have confirmed the effectiveness of the proposed methodology. The overall system efficiency is improved by approximately 19% over the operational range compared to a conventional gen-set based power system.
