Control-based Hierarchical Consolidation of Large Consumers

for Integration in Smart Grids


The 3CON research project is funded by Croatian Science Foundation. Overall project duration is 36 months, in period from December 1, 2014 to November 30, 2017.

Our LARES research team published an article "A Battery Management System for Efficient Adherence to Energy Exchange Commands under Longevity Constraints" in IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications, a prestigious IEEE scientific journal focussed on advancement of theory and practice of electrical and electronic engineering and application of electrical systems.

The article presents a new method for energy management of energy storages in microgrids that resides on model predictive control and ensures energy exchange between the storage and the rest of the microgrid is performed in exactly the commanded amount within the given time, all while taking into account the storage longevity constraints and ensuring maximum storage system efficiency.

You can download the article preprint under the Research Tab or take a look at it on the Journal web.
