Best economical hybrid energy solution Restricted Resource
Author: Gonçalves, F.V. ; Costa, L.H. ; Ramos, H.M.
Subjects: Hybrid energy ; ANN economical solution model ; WDS
Is Part Of: Energy Policy, 2011, Vol.39(6), pp.3361-3369 [Peer Reviewed Journal]
Description: This work aims at the development of an integrated model for analysis and optimization of operating strategies of Water Distribution Systems (WDS), taking into consideration economical-hydraulic-power performances. For this purpose, a software tool has been developed based on the following procedures: (i) an Artificial Neural Network (ANN) to determine the best economical hybrid energy system; (ii) for the ANN training process an energy Configuration type and Economical base Simulator model (CES) is used; (iii) as well a Hydraulic and Power Simulator model (HPS) to describe the hydraulic system behaviour; (iv) a performance assessment tool based on an optimization module to minimize pumping costs and maximize the hydraulic reliability and energyefficiency is then implemented. The Artificial Neural Network uses scenarios with only grid supply, grid combined with hydro-turbine, or with wind turbine and a mutual solution, with hydro and wind turbine. The results obtained show how the model is useful for decision support solutions in the planning of sustainable hybrid energy solutions that can be applied to water distribution systems or others existent hydro-systems, allowing the improvement of the global energy efficiency. A real case study of a small WDS in Portugal is analyzed. 
Highlights ► Integrated model for optimization the operating strategies of WDS. ►Energy efficiency in water sectors based on economical-hydraulic-power performances. ► Development of renewable hybrid solutions for energy alternatives.

Modelling of hybrid energy system Restricted Resource
Author: Gupta, Ajai ; Saini, R.P. ; Sharma, M.P.
Subjects: Micro-hydro ; Solar photovoltaic system ; Biomass energy system ; Biogasenergy system ; Diesel generator ; Integer programming
Is Part Of: Renewable Energy, 2011, Vol.36(2), pp.459-465 [Peer Reviewed Journal]
Description: A well designed hybrid energy system can be cost effective, has a high reliability and can improve the quality of life in remote rural areas. The economic constraints can be met, if these systems are fundamentally well designed, use appropriate technology and make use effective dispatch control techniques. The first paper of this tri-series paper, presents the analysis and design of a mixed integer linear mathematical programming model (time series) to determine the optimal operation and cost optimization for a hybrid energy generation system consisting of a photovoltaic array, biomass (fuelwood), biogas, small/micro-hydro, a battery bank and a fossil fuel generator. The optimization is aimed at minimizing the cost function based on demand and potential constraints. Further, mathematical models of all other components of hybrid energysystem are also developed. This is the generation mix of the remote rural of India; it may be applied to other rural areas also.

The Energy Research Institute (ERI)
The Energy Research Institute (ERI) was established as an institute under Chulalongkorn University on April 18th, 1991 based on policy of the university to emphasize on research as equal to teaching and learning and also on addressing the energy issues after the world energy crisis in 1973 and 1979.  At the beginning a committee on energy research was set up to identify and promote the research concerning energy issues. Later on it was developed to be the Energy and Training Center in 1982 and finally became the Energy Research Institute (ERI) in 1991.

Since then ERI has been conducting activities including policy research on energy and environment issues, and providing academic services to public in the field of energy efficiency and conservation as well as alternative energy. These activities have been mainly supported by government agencies, international agencies, and private sector.

In addition, ERI has involved in the issues related to Climate Change and CDM Business Opportunities with the objective to assist Thailand to promote clean energy projects.

With all the main activities mentioned above, ERI has built up strong networks with key institutions related to energy and environment, including not only government agencies, private sector, and universities in Thailand, but also international agencies.
