The name of the project is "Electrical Power System Analysis", and the group members are Kai Ni, Xin Shan, Huimin Lu and Mengkai Mao. The group leader is Kai Ni. This project is supervised by Dr Lin Jiang.
In the first week, the following tasks were raised:
1. Review the background of several energy resources. (In this project we are going to choose wind energy, solar energy, hydrogen energy and fossil fuels as the targets)
2. Design a micro-grid, which is a basic part of an electrical power system. We need to analyse the loads, find available resources and consider the environmental effect, price and efficiency.
3. According to different cases, we need to set up different kinds of power systems to achieve the highest efficiency and cost the least money.
We decided to use the software Homer Energy to analyse the cost of each micro-grid, which helps us design the most suitable electrical power system for each case.
