  1. 1. Energy storage and their combination with wind power compared to new nuclear power in Sweden : A review and cost analysis

    University essay from Högskolan i Gävle/Energisystem och byggnadsteknik

    Author : Simon Englund-Karlsson; [2020]
    Keywords : Energy storage; wind power; nuclear power; levelized cost of energy; levelized cost of storage; review; cost analysis; LCOE; LCOS; pumped hydro storage; compressed air energy storage; battery storage; PHS; CAES;

    Abstract : As intermittent renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power gradually increase around the world, older technologies such as nuclear power is phased out in Sweden and many other countries. It is then important to ensure that the total power need is secured, and that the power grid can remain stable. READ MORE

  2. 2. A study on the profitability of Virtual Power Plants and their potential for compensation of imbalances

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Aralar Irigoyen Tineo; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : In the current climate crisis, there is an increasing need for the integration of renewableenergy in higher penetration indexes, which is boosting innovation not only in the technology but also in new business models.  Virtual Power Plants (VPPs) are an aggregation model for generation that is said to be able to decrease imbalances from renewable generation while improving economic performance.

  3. 3. Conjunctive Operation of Hydro and Solar PV Power with Pumped Storage at Kafue Gorge Power Station (Zambia)

    University essay from Högskolan Dalarna/Energiteknik

    Author : Elvis Nyirenda; [2019]
    Keywords : Photovoltaic; Hydro; Power; Storage; Pumped Hydro Storage; Zambia;

    Abstract : This report covers the work carried out to redesign the two existing conventional hydro power stations in Zambia on the Kafue river into the pumped storage facility with solar photovoltaic power so that security of supply and water conservation is achieved to reduce the power deficits during the dry and drought periods. The two stations are Kafue gorge upper power station (KGUPS) and Kafue gorge lower power station (KGLPS) with an installed capacity of 990 MW and 750 MW respectively. READ MORE

  4. 4. Techno-economic analysis of energy storage integration for solar PV in Burkina Faso

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Keywords : Electrification; Burkina Faso; Energy Storage; Pumped Hydro Storage; Electric Batteries; Solar PV; Elektrifiering; Burkina Faso; Energilagring; Pumpad vattenkraft; Elektriska Batterier; Solenergi PV;

    Abstract : Electrification in rural areas of West African countries remain to be a challenge for the growth of the region. The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has set a target of 2030 to achieve 100% electrification in all member countries. READ MORE

  5. 5. MODELING, SIMULATION AND OPTIMIZATION OF A SUBMERGED RENEWABLE STORAGE SYSTEM INTEGRATED TO A FLOATING WIND FARM : A feasibility case study on the Swedish side of the Baltic sea, based on the geographical and wind conditions

    University essay from Mälardalens högskola/Framtidens energi

    Author : Prajwal Honnanayakanahalli Ramakrishna; [2019]
    Keywords : Renewable ocean storage; storage spheres; Baltic Sea; Pumped Hydro; Modeling; Simulation; Optimization; Offshore wind farm; Storage sphere Integration; feasibility study; Genetic Algorithm; Multiple objective function; Life cycle cost; Payback period; Profit;

    Abstract : Mathematical modeling and simulations of a submerged renewable storage system integrated to a wind farm, chosen based on the geographical and wind conditions at the Baltic Sea, gives insight on the feasibility of the submerged renewable storage and an approximation of the payback period and profits that could be generated. Genetic Algorithms were used to obtain the optimal number of spheres for a certain depth, based on 2 objective functions I. READ MORE
