Modélisation dynamique et optimisation des systèmes de stockage d'énergie par air comprimé fonctionnant à pression fixe

Abstract : The contribution of the renewable energy sources in the electricity generation mix is greatly increasing. Thereby, the integration of the energy storage technologies into the electrical grid is becoming crucial to reduce the drawbacks of the renewable energy sources. Then, the objective of this thesis is to evaluate the cost-effectiveness, to optimize and to study the transient behavior of a novel isobaric adiabatic compressed air energy storage (IA-CAES) system. This plant is characterized by the recovery of the compression heat and the storage of the compressed air under fixed pressure in hydro-pneumatic tanks. These allow improving the efficiency and the energy density of the storage system and avoiding the use of fossil fuel sources.Firstly, a steady state model is developed to perform energy and exergy analyses of the IA-CAES system. An exergoeconomic model is also carried out in order to optimize the cost-effectiveness of the storage system by using a genetic algorithm. So, an objective function, which includes the investment cost and the operating cost, is defined to be minimized. The system efficiency is 55.1% in the base case, it is improved to 56.6% after optimization with a decrease in the capital investment by 5.6%.Secondly, a dynamic model is developed to study the flexibility of the storage system and its ability to meet the electrical grid requirements (primary and secondary reserves) by evaluating the duration of the transient states. The results show that the storage system needs more than 2 min before being able to consume all the excess energy available on the electrical grid and more than 5 min before being able to produce all the energy required by the electrical grid. Suggestions are analyzed to improve the flexibility of the storage system such as the operation of the storage system in standby mode with low speeds. It allows reducing the energy losses by 68% during the storage mode and by 27% during the production mode compared to the standby mode in nominal speeds.
