Validation of Hybrid2 with the Froya Island data set

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

To validate the simulation model Hybrid2, the authors simulated the performance of the Froeya system and compared it to measured data. The hybrid system, located on the Norwegian island of Froeya, is a wind/diesel with short-term battery storage and a dump load. Almost 17 days of system operation data are available from EFI, the Norwegian Electrical Research Institute of Norway. The same data set has been used to validate the European Wind Diesel Logistic Modeling Package (WDL) (Infield 1993, 1994). The authors input the measured time series of primary load and wind speed for this validation. As was the case ... continued below

Description

To validate the simulation model Hybrid2, the authors simulated the performance of the Froeya system and compared it to measured data. The hybrid system, located on the Norwegian island of Froeya, is a wind/diesel with short-term battery storage and a dump load. Almost 17 days of system operation data are available from EFI, the Norwegian Electrical Research Institute of Norway. The same data set has been used to validate the European Wind Diesel Logistic Modeling Package (WDL) (Infield 1993, 1994). The authors input the measured time series of primary load and wind speed for this validation. As was the case for the validation of WDL, they modified the primary load to account for a gap in the measured energy balance. The wind speed was also corrected to account for the temporary unavailability of the wind turbine. When the Hybrid2 simulation is performed using the EFI input parameters for these components, the simulated energy production of the wind turbine and diesel is within 2% of the measured values. The simulated battery efficiency is much lower than was indicated in the measurements (which may be the case because the Alcad battery that was used in the simulation is not the same as the battery used in the Froeya system). Even so, the role of this short-term storage and the dispatch strategy is well represented, as shown by the good correspondence of 31% between the measured and simulated number of diesel starts. In addition, simulated fuel consumption was within 2% of the measured value, an accuracy sufficient for most design studies.
