Open Access research that is exploring the innovative potential of sustainable design solutions in architecture and urban planning...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

This paper will propose an approach to calculate and evaluate the reserve capacity and energy size of Pumping-Hydro Combined Energy Storage (PHCES) when wind power is integrated to power grid while considering the scheme of generation capacity allocation and operation of PHCES. This approach will use Monte Carlo Method to simulate large amount of samples to obtain the minimum value of capacity and energy size that could satisfy the requirement of system reliability. Finally this approach will apply in a RBTS system to assess the project feasibility
