Energy Management Systems to Reduce Electrical Energy Consumption
Julian, Alexander L.
MetadataShow full item record
An energy management system comprises an electrical energy storage element such as a battery, renewable electrical energy sources such as solar and wind, a digital signal processing controller and a solid state power converter to interface the elements together. This hardware demonstration in the lab at the Naval Postgraduate School will focus on solid state power conversion methods to improve the reliability and efficiency of electrical energy consumption by Navy facilities. This is accomplished by peak power shaving, power factor compensation and online standby redundancy. Harvesting renewable energy, especially solar power, will also be investigated.
