概要: Electrical energy is a high-quality form of energy in the sense
that it can be easily and efficiently converted into other forms of
energy, and furthermore it can be used to control other forms of energy.
Unfortunately, electricity supply and demand are typically not balanced
with each other. Storage of excessive energy and compensation of the
energy shortage can significantly mitigate the over-investment in the
generation facilities.
Like memory devices, no single type of electrical energy storage
(EES) element can fulfill all the desirable requirements. Despite active
research on the new EES technologies, it is not likely to have an
ultimate high-efficiency, high- power/energy capacity, low-cost, and
long-cycle life EES element in the near future. We propose an hybrid
electrical energy storage (HEES) system that consists of two or more
heterogeneous EES elements, thereby realizing the advantages of each EES
element while hiding their weaknesses.
Compared with the conventional homogeneous EES systems, HEES
systems provide high output power and energy density as well as high
power conversion efficiency and low self-discharge at a low capital cost.
Cycle efficiency of a HEES system, which is defined as the ratio of
energy which is delivered by the HEES system to the load device to
energy which is supplied by the power source to the HEES system, is one
of the most important factors in determining the overall operational
cost of the system.
We formulate the HEES management problems and project them into
computer memory system design and management. We break the HEES
management problems into charge allocation into different banks of EES
elements, charge replacement (i.e., discharge) from different banks of
EES elements, and charge migration from one bank to another bank of EES
elements. Even a hybrid EES system cannot achieve high cycle efficiency
if their storage banks have a fixed power and voltage rating because the
optimal power capacity and voltage rating varies by the application and
the state of charge (SoC) of the storage bank. Bank reconfiguration
dynamically changes the array structure of an EES bank and maximizes the
efficiency.
In this talk, we start from introduction to the concept of HEES
systems including EES element characteristics and power converter
characteristics. The main body of this talk is charge allocation,
migration, optimization, and bank reconfiguration. The HEES research is
recently brought up, and thus there are a lot of important open problems.
We will conclude this talk with remarks on the future work.
