A Summary of the Main Contents and Existing Problems in the Study of Multi-Energy Coupling in Energy Internet
Multi-energy flow (MEF) coupling is one of the key features of the energy Internet and integrated energy systems that are different from smart grids. With the increasing coupling of heterogeneous energy flow, the system characteristics of coupling are becoming more and more obvious and more complicated. The modeling, analysis and control methods of traditional single flow systems have not been applied directly. Therefore, it is necessary to study the modeling of multi-energy flow coupling, the power flow analysis, optimization and control method of heterogeneous energy flow, which plays the role of multi-energy flow synergy to avoid the adverse effects of coupling. This paper summarizes the current research situation of energy Internet at home and abroad from the aspects of modeling of multi-energy flow, power flow calculation and optimal dispatching, and analyzes the existing problems in the research of these aspects.
