K-INF is supported by SATT Linksium Grenoble Alpes.

K-INF for microgrids frequency regulation ensures better dynamic performance for large load variations, up to 50%.
Both regulation precision and compliance with grid codes are improved.

K-INF allows hybrid/multi-storage sources being coordinated such that each of them operates within its specialisation domain.

APPLICATIONS

K-INF will constitute the basis for a broad range of effective PMSs for microgrids, such as islands, geographical regions, electrical vehicles, ships, etc. either connected to the main grid or autonomous.

User-friendly K-INF design interface in MATLAB®/ Simulink® is fully operational

 

Application software used for designing
and off-line closed-loop testing the H-infinity controller which is the core of K-INF power management system. 

This interface contains a comprehensive mix of design and test functions and is intended to be used within an iterative design approach.

The user inputs the plant parameters and closed-loop desired behavior. Then the plant model, templates of sensitivity functions (TSF) and the controller itself are automatically computed.

The closed-loop behavior is verified  within a four-step procedure via frequency- and
time-domain simulations. If one of this steps yields non-satisfactory results, the design process is resumed from the beginning by altering the TSFs' initial parameters (desired performance).

Tests of LiFePo batteries with K-INF PMS will be finished

Tests of LiFePo batteries working in the micro-grid frequency regulation use-case simulated environment, equipped of K-INF PMS, are in progress on the real-time demonstrator, in order to further build a sound comparison basis with state-of-the-art PMS performance.


Batteries have been solicited within accelerated operation cycles relevant to the frequency regulation use case in order to quantify fatigue effects on their state of health (SoH).
