Power Electronic Converter for Efficient Home Energy Management
MetadataShow full item record
The residential and commercial buildings are going green to reduce the carbon footprint. To improve the energy efficiency of the buildings, the Internet of Things can be used in conjunction with power electronic converters to improve the performance of energy efficient buildings. The distributed generation for the buildings mainly consists of battery energy storage, wind generator, solar PV panels along with the national utility grid. So, the power/energy from renewable sources can be efficiently managed by the power electronics converter. Mainly the power electronic converters are two categories one for the energy utilization side and the second is the generation, transmission, and distribution of the electrical energy. The power electronic converter has been developed to address the multiple source's communications at the central converter which reduces the utility bill payment to the energy (grid) suppliers and depends fully on the renewable energy sources along with the battery energy storage. To achieve this a novel power electronic converter has been proposed. This directly connects the PV panels with the semiconductor devices, passive components like inductors and capacitors along with the battery energy storage. The resultant output is directly feeding o the utility grid and simultaneously commercial home. A detailed mathematical analysis has been carried out along with the novel switching algorithm has been proposed. The simulation is performed in the MATLAB Simulink to validate the operation/working of the proposed converter. an experimental prototype500Watt has been developed to test the mathematical validity and a suitable control algorithm has been developed for the proper operation.
