Abstract

Multi-energy systems (MES) are a promising solution to solve some of the challenges that distribution systems face due to intermittent generation and increasing demand. To accelerate research in this area, comprehensive and openly available modelling tools are required. This paper presents the extension of the open source tool Flexible Distribution Grid Demonstrator (FLEDGE) towards modelling conversion and cogeneration units in flexible thermal-electric distribution systems. The implementation of the formulated models is demonstrated in a case study where the optimal operation of a thermal-electric MES is analyzed in unconstrained and constrained operation with the aim to quantify the benefits of coordinated coupling of thermal-electric distribution systems.
