Abstract

The paper is motivated by making use of solar energy in public lighting services via an intermediate battery storage. The aim is to develop algorithms for controlling the energy flow in the system, in such a way that robustness against power outages is guaranteed and the total energy cost is minimized. A novel approach is proposed which predicts energy production and consumption by fitting stochastic models to historic data, and solves the resulting optimization problem on a rolling horizon. Experimental results are also presented, illustrating the behavior of the controlled energy system in typical winter and summer days.
