This project aims to develop an intelligent energy management system for a grid- connected microgrid (consisting of distributed renewable energy sources, energy storages and local loads), this will maximise energy usage efficiency and make renewable generation more cost effective whilst minimising environmental impact and provide ancillary services. This project has eight project partners including National Grid UK. The PhD student is expected to collaborate with two postdocs working in this project as well as other researchers in the project supervisor's team.
