As a distributed renewable energy, biogas offers an environmentally-friendly approach to satisfy diversified energy demands in smart grid. In addition, biogas energy could be fully exploited based on digesting thermodynamic effects for the synergetic couplings and interactions of electricity, biogas and heating energy flows. In this seminar, I will give a presentation on the solar-biogas renewable Microgrid for coupled multi-carrier energy supplies. The multi-energy complementarity of solar-biogas renewable portfolio is utilized to facilitate the mitigation of renewable intermittency and the efficient utilization of batteries. Besides, a coupling matrix is formulated for the modeling of production, conversion, storage, and consumption of different energy carriers. Then, a multi-carrier generation scheduling scheme is further presented to dynamically optimize dispatch factors in the coupling matrix for energy-efficient conversion and storage, while different energy demands of end-users are satisfied. The feasibility of the proposed Microgrid is validated in the case study of a demonstration project in Yiyang, China, and the application results confirm the capability of the proposed approach to improve energy utilization and environmental pollutions.

Microgrid is an effective solution to integrate distributed generation resources. In Singapore, Nanyang Technological University is now building a microgrid called Renewable Energy Integration Demonstrator for Singapore (REIDS) in Semakau Island. However, uncertain renewable power such as wind and solar photovoltaic generation and uncertain load demands can introduce tremendous difficulties for energy management and voltage regulation in microgrids. This presentation will firstly introduce the REIDS project and then details a robust operation method to coordinate different controllable resources (including micro-turbine, energy storage unit, and demand response, capacitor banks, on-load-tap-changers, as well as converters) at different timescales to achieve robust energy management and voltage regulation against uncertain renewable power generation and load demands.
Dr Xu Yan is now holding the Nanyang Assistant Professorship at NTU (http://www3.ntu.edu.sg/nap/). Prior to joining NTU, he held the University of Sydney Postdoctoral Fellowship in Australia (http://sydney.edu.au/research/join-us/university-of-sydney-fellowship-scheme.html). He was with Hong Kong Polytechnic University between 2009 and 2011. His research areas include power system, smart grid, and renewable energy integration. He has published over 85 SCI journal papers including 55 in IEEE Transactions and 17 in IET Proceedings. He has also published 2 book chapters and over 45 international conference papers. He has received 6 times of paper contest awards and conference best paper awards from IEEE and IET. His research deliverables have been practically applied by power utilities in Australia, USA, Hong Kong, Macau, and China Mainland.
