Diesel Generators with PhotoVoltaic (PV) Co-Generation

This project aims to develop an optimal method of integrating Photovoltaic plants into Microgrid with Diesel generators. It is expected to achieve high quality, high efficiency, and low cost of power generation by the introduction of renewable power source and its control system. Although existing researches have provided quite a lot of references for this renewable generation topic, it is the first time we look into the detail of the integration method from an economic aspect of view. Schneider, as a company with a focus on smart grid applications, could go one step further into the area of renewable power integration in conventional power systems, and therefore expand their potential customer groups by conducting this project.
