With the expansion of renewable but volatile power generation from wind and solar energy, the demand for future energy system management is increasing. Especially the security and reliability of electricity supply has to be evaluated with new focuses. The grid stability has to be ensured by controllable energy producers. Apart from solid biomass, biogas is the only energy source that can be stored among the renewable energies. The expansion of the technical and economic potential of controllable power production via biogas plants ensures grid stability in the future.Concepts are generated and simulations are carried out regarding technical modifications for a controllable electricity production via biogas plants. Special focus is on raw biogas storage, the CHP units, the heat supply for internal and external heat demands and the needs of regional distribution grids with a high share of volatile energy producers. The overall efficiency of biogas plants is optimised and a monitoring system and a proactive control unit is implemented in a flexible biogas plant.
The aims of the project are:
Biogas, systems technology, electricity production on demand, electricity grid, proactive control unit, optimisation, monitoring, simulation, heat usage, grid stability, avoidance of grid overload, photovoltaic
