State-Based Engine Models for Transient Applications with a Scalable Approach to Turbocharging
Microgrids have the potential to improve energy surety, increase the penetration of renewable energy, and provide electrical power in remote areas; however, reduced system inertia contributes to challenges in maintaining power quality during operation. In this dissertation a state-based mean-value turbocharged diesel engine model is developed for applications in microgrid. The model is validated against transient data collected during step load testing at Colorado State University’s Engines and Energy Conversion Laboratory. A controller with an air-fuel ratio based smoke limit and load based ...
