Artificial Intelligence (AI) based Control and Fault Monitoring of Batteries in Microgrids

The project focuses on advanced control and fault monitoring of batteries in microgrid context. Microgrids battery storage systems are frequently charged and discharged at high ramp rate. Such a usage pattern brings the challenges to fast reference tracking control and battery health. To overcome these challenges, this project will explore the AI based control and fault monitoring methods that possess the advantages of model independency, autonomous gain tuning and high computational efficiency. The investigated methods will be applied to produce excellent battery performance in microgrids and report battery faults when necessary.
