Synchronized exchange energy method and device between users of the electric grid for decentralized management

Posted by University of HuelvaResponsive · Patents for licensing · Spain

Summary of the technology

The method comprises defining fragments of energy to be demanded at given time intervals by consumers of the electrical network, negotiating their purchase with providers or other users capable of bidding, synchronizing production and consumption, and storaging or providing the difference between the negotiated fragment and the amount of energy actually demanded or suplyed with zero-impact on the grid

Description of the technology

Nowadays, electric grid users buy more and more generator devices, as photovoltaic panels or wind turbines. These users dump the produced energy into the grid. The stability of the grid stands meanwhile the proportion of 'uncontrolled' energy is lower than the one produced by the big electric centrals. As this proportion rises, no solution exists for stability. Another opened problem is to assign the purchases where the product cannot be distinguished between different providers.
This patent solve the two problems, allowing producers and consumers to establish free comerce between them and using the grid without stability problems. The idea is to use high synchronizing capability of modern systems (GPS), and the communications network to negotiate the supplying of exact fragments of energy. Consumers have to estimate the energy they need, and ask for it. During the process, if they need more or less energy, a storage device will provide or storage the difference. The algorithm in the device is continuously calculating the next fragment of energy to purchase by taking into account the energy stored and the foreseeable demand.
With this system there is no excuses to prevent users from buying their own generator devices (PV panels, turbines, etc.) and link them with the grid.
