Hybrid ES System Designs
Project Leader: Bala Venkatesh, Ryerson University
This research aims to develop hybrid ES systems, where several types and sizes of ES systems are combined to provide a composite storage solution. The first objective is to develop an optimization solution that provides the optimal hybrid design of an ES system that combines two or more storage elements to provide certain performance metrics and features at the lowest cost, and with the longest life and highest reliability. The second objective of this research is to develop scheduling methods for the developed hybrid systems to deliver the required services, while maximizing asset life.
