Open Access research that is improving renewable energy technology...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers across the departments of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE), Electronic & Electrical Engineering (EEE), and Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering (NAOME), all of which are leading research into aspects of wind energy, the control of wind turbines and wind farms.

Researchers at EEE are examining the dynamic analysis of turbines, their modelling and simulation, control system design and their optimisation, along with resource assessment and condition monitoring issues. The Energy Systems Research Unit (ESRU) within MAE is producing research to achieve significant levels of energy efficiency using new and renewable energy systems. Meanwhile, researchers at NAOME are supporting the development of offshore wind, wave and tidal-current energy to assist in the provision of diverse energy sources and economic growth in the renewable energy sector.

Abstract

This paper shares some early experiences of developing the Web of Cells (WoC) concept for real time implementation supported by the Smart Grid Architecture Model (SGAM) reference framework. One of the use cases identified for the WoC concept is elaborated upon and is mapped to SGAM, providing one of the first examples where the SGAM reference framework has been used to develop a future distributed control architecture for real time implementation in power systems. Furthermore, this paper offers some insight into the key contributions that this approach can bring, such as a more effective interdisciplinary collaboration, better understanding of the control problem, and its implementation and validation.
