Study and development of a methodology for driving micro-network distributed systems: Application to Power-to-Gas as new energy conversion and storage architectures.

Our work is concerned with energy transition and the emergence of micro-grids and their ability to integrate distributed power generation while at the same time ensure stability and service quality. Among the emerging technologies, the Power to Gas process and in particular the Power to Methane process which we are addressing here (production of CH4 from electricity, via H2 and CO2), have the advantage of absorbing surplus of electricity production, recovering CO2 emissions, as well as offering significant and long-term storage capacity.
Our concern was in relation to the modeling and simulation of a PtM system with the objective of ensuring the continuity of CH4 supply and ensuring the safety of the system in operation.
First, we chose the appropriate technologies to determine the structure of a PtM system before sizing this system. We utilised the REM modeling (Energetic Macroscopic Representation) to integrate the physical behaviors of the equipment of the system in a steady state, and in a transient state, taking into account phases like starting, preheating…, and ultimately the simulation of the operation system.
In the second phase, we developed a multilevel energy management strategy to ensure the proper working order of each piece of equipment and of the global system. We chose to implement it through a multi-agent system (MAS) and we modeled each one of the agents. We partially implemented the MAS and simulated it with the REM model of the PtM system to show the feasibility of our approach.
