Abstract [en]

The iGrid project deals with the design and implementation of a solar-powered smart microgrid to supply electric power to small rural communities. In this paper, we discuss the roadmap of the iGrid project, which forms by merging the roadmaps of KIC (knowledge and Innovation Community) and CDE (Challenge-Driven Education). We introduce and explain a five-gear chain as Challenge, Education, Research, Innovation, and Deployment, called CERID, to reach the main goals of this project. We investigate the full chain in the iGrid project, which is established between KTH Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden) and University of Dar es Salam (Tanzania). We introduce the key stakeholders and explain how CERID goals can be accomplished in higher educations and through scientific research. Challenges are discussed, some innovative ideas are introduced and deployment solutions are recommended.

Abstract [en]

To improve the living standard of urban communities and to render the healthcare services sustainable and efficient, e-health system is experiencing a paradigm shift. Patients with cognitive discrepancies can be monitored and observed through the analyses of power consumption of home appliances. This paper surveys recent trends in home-based e-health services using metered energy consumption data. It also analyses and summarizes the constant impedance, constant current and constant power (ZIP) approaches for load modelling. The analysis briefly recaptures both non-intrusive and intrusive techniques. The work reports an architecture using IoT technologies for the design of a smart-meter, and fog-computing paradigm for raw processing of energy dataset. Finally, the paper describes the implementation platform based on GirdLAB-D simulation to construct accurate models of household appliances and test the machine-learning algorithm for the detection of abnormal behaviour.

Abstract [en]

Smart-grid is a complex system that incorporates distributed control, communication, optimization, and management functions in addition to the legacy functions such as generation, storage, and control. The design and test of new smart-grid algorithms require an efficient simulator. Agent based simulation platforms are the most popular tools that work well in the control and monitoring functionalities of the power electric network such as the microgrid. Most existing simulation tools necessitate either simulated or static data. In this paper, we propose a hardware-in-loop simulator for dc-microgrid. The simulator reads the power generated by the PV panels and the battery SoC using Raspberry PI. A physical agent that MRS on Raspberry PI sends the real-time data to a dc-microgrid simulator that runs on a PC. As a proof of concept, we implemented a load-shedding algorithm using the proposed system.

Abstract [en]

The integration of Information and Communication Technologies in the power grid has given rise to new applications such as Advanced Metering Infrastructure. However, these technologies have also exposed the grid to new forms of security attacks. It is challenging to analyse and find solutions for these attacks due to the complexity of the grid system. There is a need of simple mechanisms to model and study the security implications of new power applications. This paper introduces a simulation model to evaluate the impact of security attacks on the Advanced Metering Infrastructure of a microgrid. The model is evaluated by demonstrating three security attack scenarios which lead to theft of power theft, privacy loss, and power outage.

Abstract [en]

Control and monitoring processes in the electric field are fundamental aspects in smart grid. Different attributes, systems and mechanisms are required in handling activities from transmission, distribution and consumer side of the electrical network based on advanced technologies. In Tanzania, there still exists manual operations on distribution side and very little on the transmission side. Agent based distributed system has been seen to work successfully which involves the use of artificial intelligence and autonomous actions during the operations and controlling activities. Therefore, in this manner, the generated model based on REPAST simulation tool for solar driven DC microgrid will be achieved to show features of control and monitoring the grid including load shedding technique and demand responses based on pricing. Furthermore, the design of the prototype based on the stated features will be implemented. The advantages and impact of the demonstration can be deployed and used in any community for the application of any renewable energy systems.

Abstract [en]

The smart grid is a new paradigm that aims to modernize the legacy power grid. It is based on the integration of ICT technologies, embedded system, sensors, renewable energy and advanced algorithms for management and optimization. The smart grid is a system of systems in which communication technology plays a vital role. Safe operations of the smart grid need a careful design of the communication protocols, cryptographic schemes, and computing technology. In this article, the authors describe current communication technologies, recently proposed algorithms, protocols, and architectures for securing smart grid communication network. They analyzed in a unifying approach the three principles pillars of smart-gird: Sensors, communication technologies, and security. Finally, the authors elaborate open issues in the smart-grid communication network.

Abstract [en]

This paper proposes a Multi-Agent System (MAS) modeling and control architecture for a solar driven DC microgrid. The microgrid consists of solar system as a source of power, energy storage system, critical and non-critical houses (loads) with their own solar and storage as well. For the proposed MAS an individual house can have the ability to sell extra power to the main solar source. The main solar source can generate power and provide to the community when needed. The MAS also controls and monitors an automatic load shedding technique to disconnect non critical loads when there is a deficiency of power supply to the system. The validity of the objectives are demonstrated by agent based system which runs under REPAST simulation tool which used successfully three loads: hospital and two houses during simulation.
