Hydrogen-Aeolic Energy with Optimised eLectrolysers Upstream of Substation

Deliverables

Protocols for demonstration of energy-storage strategy

Tecnalia will develop protocols for demonstration to test the control algorithm developed by US and SINTEF for the energy-storage use case. These protocols shall ensure that all relevant aspects of the control algorithms shall be tested during demonstration. Furthermore, Tecnalia will perform a risk analysis for each set of controllers in terms of plant reliability and safety. SINTEF and US will modify their control algorithms according to Tecnalia’s input if necessary. HYG, VK and KES will support the planning phase by quality-checking the protocols before their application in the field.

Energy analysis of the Raggovidda integrated system

Tecnalia will define the overall layout of the plant and, by means of mathematical modelling, the sizing of the components, detailing the high-level system characteristics that will allow the flexible operation of the plant with multiple control strategies during demonstration, also factoring in the wind farm characteristics and the targeted application scenarios.

Valorisation plan for hydrogen and by-products

SINTEF will chart valorisation opportunities for the hydrogen, oxygen and heat produced by the plant. VK will contribute their local contact network and knowledge of the local economy. SINTEF will contact local authorities and businesses to assess their interest and capability to exploit hydrogen, oxygen and heat and, when appropriate, supporting them in drafting applications for funding of hydrogen demonstration activities with Norwegian or European funding agencies.

Impact of wind-hydrogen plants on energy systems and RCS

SINTEF, US and Tecnalia will produce and analyse the potential impact of the Haeolus concept on the European and international energy systems, especially in regard to the penetration of wind power into the energy mix. The report will also consider the implications on regulations, codes and standards in energy systems and wind farms, with the support of HYG and of contacts established in the IPHE.

Protocols for demonstration of mini-grid strategy

Tecnalia will develop protocols for demonstration to test the control algorithm developed by US and SINTEF for the mini-grid use case. These protocols shall ensure that all relevant aspects of the control algorithms shall be tested during demonstration. Furthermore, Tecnalia will perform a risk analysis for each set of controllers in terms of plant reliability and safety. SINTEF and US will modify their control algorithms according to Tecnalia’s input if necessary. HYG, VK and KES will support the planning phase by quality-checking the protocols before their application in the field.

Dissemination workshop

UBFC will organise a workshop during the early stages of the project, directed at both research and industry, to disseminate the early results in system design and establish connections with other initiatives. The workshop will preferably be organised in connection with a relevant international scientific conference.

Control system for mini-grid use case

US will develop high-level control algorithms for the integrated wind-hydrogen system for the use case of mini-grid.

Control system for energy-storage use case

US will develop high-level control algorithms for the integrated wind-hydrogen system for the use case of energy storage.

Diagnostics and prognostics for the wind-hydrogen plant

UBFC will develop relevant diagnostic and prognostic systems to assess the current state and maintenance requirements of all critical components (electrolyser, compressor, …), to feed the controller and to anticipate maintenance requirements of all critical components so that the system may be operated for months without supervision in person.

Dynamic model for hydrogen production and storage plants

US will develop a library of static and dynamic process models of the system components. The model will include actual constraints, such as working ranges of components, capacity limits of power the lines, dynamic output of wind turbines, dynamics and ramping rates. SINTEF will integrate the resulting model library into a fully integrated system, and support US to ensure that the model library is the best trade-off between accuracy, computational performance and complexity for the purpose of control synthesis and analysis.

Site ready

VK will be responsible for the preparation of the site in Raggovidda. The site will necessarily be located in an area hardly accessible in wintertime, and major construction works will need to be scheduled for summer; VK will build a hall to house the full system, so that work may proceed also in winter. VK will also procure all necessary legal authorisations for the site, and provide suitable heating, internet connection, water supply (extending a previously dug one), and electrical connections to both grid and wind farm. HYG and KES will train VK’s personnel in basic maintenance, safety procedures and general principles of their plant, so that they may promptly intervene in case of minor issues requiring manual intervention on the plant.

Web site online, presence in selected social networks

KES will set up a Web site for the project. The Web site will feature project description and progress, contact information, public deliverables, open-access journal articles, presentations and relevant news items for the field of wind-hydrogen systems. KES will also establish a presence on relevant social media, such as LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, and add content regularly through the project.
