ENERGY CONVERSION and STORAGE: Home-Mobility-Heat-Electricity

Share

The discussion about a reliable and ecological energy supply is often limited to the electric energy as it was done alos in the previous workshops of the Swiss chapter of IEEE Power and Energy Society (PES). With the upcoming discussion triggered by the renewables and smart grid concepts more amd more focus is given also to non-electric energies also like heat and the power carrier gas. Heat and electric power are also key factors e.g. for buildings, electricity and gas e.g. for mobility.To optimize the energy landscape, all energies have to be seen in parallel. They may also be converted from one form into the other. Also storage capacities play an increasing role since the increasing part of volatile energies. Finaly not only the bahvior of the users but also the business models of the utilities are impacted. One day is by far not enough to look on all energy options in a comprehesive way but this workshop will open up the discussion and provide some awareness beyond the boundaries of a single energy forms.

Marija Zima of ABB

Topic:

Mixed Energy Landscape – Potential and Challenges for Innovation

Motivated by the environment sustainability, many countries are looking for the approaches to energy savings. Number of policies have been implemented in the energy sector. Society is looking for further steps. Design and operation of the mixed energy systems represents many technological and research challenges, and simultaneously it can unlock the potential for the energy savings. First, author gives an overview of the energy balance in the residential, commercial and industrial sector. Secondly, presentation discusses particular case study for an optimal mixed-energy supply of a residential and small commercial settlement in Switzerland. Key aspects of the methodology, observations and further steps will conclude this presentation.

Biography:

Marija Zima-Bockarjova received M.S. in electrical engineering from Riga technical university in 2002, PhD in power systems from Riga Technical University in 2007, PhD in Power Systems from ETH Zürich in 2010. In 2000–2005, she was a planning engineer with the Latvian national power utility - Latvenergo. In 2010, she joined ABB Corporate Research as a scientist. Currently, she is a Group leader of Power and Energy Systems group, Automation Department, ABB Corporate Research Center, Switzerland. Her research focus on power system real-time operation, analysis and protection, wholesale electric energy market, energy economics, reliable integration of intermittent and distributed sources to the power grids. Dr. Bockarjova is a member of CIGRE SC Operation and Control.

Michael Koller of EKZ

Topic:

Experiences and outlook for battery energy storage systems in the distribution grid

To ensure the cost efficiency of the distribution grid EKZ has bundled applied research and demonstration projects under the roof the EKZ Smart Grid Lab. Since more than 4 years EKZ operates a large battery energy storage system (BESS) called The Zurich 1 MW BESS. With the BESS integrated into the low voltage and the medium voltage grid EKZ has investigated use cases such as peak shaving, voltage control, provision of ancillary services and islanded operation of an office building. The presentation will provide insights and measurements from  operational experiences with the Zurich 1 MW BESS.

Biography:

Michael Koller holds a Bachelor degree in Chemistry and a Master degree in Energy Science and Technology from ETH Zurich. He joined the Elektrizitätzswerke des Kanton Zurich (EKZ) in 2011 as a specialist in energy storage. He is currently head of technology management and responsible for EKZ’s Smart Grid Laboratory. The Smart Grid Laboratory is responsible for the operation of one of the largest battery energy storage system in Switzerland and various other pilot projects in the context of active distribution networks such as demand response based on smart metering infrastructure and advanced planning approaches.
