Gestão de Recursos em Edifícios para Flexibilização da Potência Contratada


BeNeFiCE is a project, proposed by GECAD/ISEP that aims to address a relevant societal problem by improving the integration of renewable energy resources, consumption flexibility, storage system, electric vehicles (EVs) and flexible contracted power in collective residential buildings. The actual problem formulations for optimal energy resource management neither fully consider the contracted power flexibility nor exploring the advantages to look for a collective building as only one electrical customer.

Therefore, the current project shall propose advances with new models and algorithms, including computational intelligence, which consider uncertainty while approaching different time scheduling horizons.

Overall, BeNeFiCE should capture the interdependencies between energy resources and ultimately achieve optimal operation with higher integration of renewables in residential buildings, thus leading to more economical benefits for end-users.
