A Design and Implementation of a Peer to Peer Energy Network.
MetadataShow full item record
Peer to peer energy trading is the direct energy trading between prosumers and consumers of energy from small scale distributed energy sources. A prosumer is an energy consumer that produces electricity. In this project, we propose a peer to peer energy trading network in micro grids with solar photovoltaic distributed generation and a this is done by creating a model of a residential network using results obtained from a case study. The network is then designed in a simulation software and an analysis of its operation is done to show the process of energy sharing between peers. The peer to peer network supplies power independently and if there is an excess in power it is traded to other consumers that might need it. This type of network aims to advance the generation to include other production units of small-scale renewable resources whose intake is low for now but have a promising future.
