Semester Project: Hydrogen Energy Storage Simulation

In the autumn semester of 2021, I worked on a semester project under the supervision of P. Christian of Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI).

Overview of the energy storage process

The focus of the project was the cost-optimal design of Battery and Hydrogen Energy Storage Systems (BESS/HESS) for peak shaving the demand resulting from Battery-Electric Vehicle (BEV) fast-charging at a highway rest stop. To this end, a MATLAB simulation framework was implemented along with Simulink models for the simulation of the Energy Storage Systems in question. Finally, the simulations are evaluated for a variety of scenarios to determine the cost-optimal design of BESS/HESS peak-shaving installations.

The final report, presentation slides and MATLAB source code are available for download.
