Title: Control Strategies of Hybrid Offshore Renewable Power Generation System Integrated Into Power Grid
A hybrid offshore renewable power generation system consists of offshore wind, wave and tidal power generations. The control strategies of the hybrid system integrated into power grid including: (1) Optimal tuning method for the controllers’ parameters of hybrid system to improve the dynamic performance. In this method, the key issue is how to reduce the optimization complexity, because the control system of the hybrid system has tens of parameters. (2) Coordinated control method for hybrid system with battery energy storage system to smooth the output power fluctuations, i.e., to improve the steady-state performance. The proposed method has the capability of handling state of charge constraints of the battery through the coordination of controls between the hybrid system and the battery.
Dr. Chuan Qin is a lecturer from College of Energy and Electrical Engineering, Hohai University, Nanjing, China, and now working with Dr. Jonathan Shek as an Academic Visitor. He received the MSc and PhD degrees in electrical engineering from Hohai University, in 2005 and 2013, respectively. His research interest is modeling and control of offshore renewable power generation. He is currently involved in the project of “Research on Offshore Hybrid Renewable Generation” funded by National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC).
