An Investigation Process for Hybrid Energy Grid Optimization

A hybrid energy network is an energy system operated across different domains of energy grids, where energy can be transformed between energy carriers. It is regarded as one good solution for managing volatile renewable energy sources in a better way. The paper introduces an investigation process that is designed to develop and evaluate co-operative hybrid energy network control strategies. The proposed investigation process consists of two-step holistic investigation with simulation-based and economic-model based analysis. The process is designed to enable multi-aspect investigation on the range of flexibility provided by evolution of hybrid energy grids.
