Residential Power Plants and the Electricity Network Management Problem
Australian's have demonstrated their willingness to invest in a rooftop solar for the financial, environmental and independence benefits.
With continued price decline projections, batteries and electric vehicles will soon become the next unignorable investment. That is, unless networks regulate their uptake first because in mass numbers these technologies, including solar, have the potential to overload our electricity networks.
Fortunately these issues can be mitigated and further benefits realised if we can coordinate their operation in a way that satisfies both the network and device owner's requirements. This talk will explore these challenges and opportunities, present recent results from the Bruny Island Battery Trial that uses the Network-Aware Coordination technology developed at the ANU, and discuss future developments.
Paul is a research fellow within the Research School of Computer Science at the ANU. He works with a team delivering planning and optimisation for power systems -- making the smart grid a reality. He spends most of his hours working on the ARENA funded CONSORT project (aka the Bruny Island Battery Trial)
