This paper presents a comprehensive concept for the development of an auto-adaptive optimization model seeking to determine optimal operating strategies of micro combined heat and power (CHP) units in domestic households with special respect to the energy-economic framework conditions in Germany. The methods proposed to be applied are an adaptive network based fuzzy inference sys-tem (ANFIS ) coupled with mixed-integer-linear programming (MIP).
Nowadays, most of micro-CHP units are driven heat led, due to their limited tech-nical ability of following the electric load profile (especially in case of fuel cell micro-CHP). However, the consumption-rate of locally self-generated electricity is crucial for the economics of micro-CHP systems. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to provide an economically optimized operating strategy which requires information about the household’s future load situation and therefore an appropriate individual short term load forecast (STLF). Furthermore, the concept described considers battery and hybrid electric vehicles as additional consumers of electric energy which enforces the necessity of optimi ... mehrzed operation.
