Economic Dispatch in Microgrids with Renewable Energy Using Interior Point Algorithm and Lineal Constrainst

Main Article Content

Dario Arango Ricardo Urrego Sergio Rivera


Throughout this article simulations of possible financial firms for a system with renewable energy penetration shown when there are variations in wind speed and solar radiation for different times of day. For this test and a valid methodology to minimize the total cost of the system from the use of the interior point method used by the function fmincon MatLab. One of the contributions of this article, is that an adaptation of the restrictions of the power system to function syntax that requires these proposed restrictions are linear.
