Optimal Control of Hybrid Solar Heat and Power Systems based on MPC and AI methods

Engineering sciences Mathematics - Numerical analysis - Simulation Thermal energy, combustion, flows


Industrial processes use heat in the 50-1500°C temperature range, and heat accounts for around 70% of industrial energy consumption. Heat consumption in industry is generally classified into three temperature ranges: low (400°C), which can be addressed by different solar collector technologies. Concentrating solar technologies are needed to produce solar heat at T>150°C. The central issue of integrating solar heat into industrial processes is addressed in the SHIP4D project (PEPR SPLEEN programme).In this thesis, the work will focus on the high-level optimal control of hybrid solar systems for producing heat and electricity for industrial processes. The control tools will be developed in PEGASE, and applied to a simulator of the LACTOSOL power plant supplied by NEWHEAT. The thesis work will also serve as a basis for the European INDHEAP project (Optimal Solar Systems for Industrial Heat and Power), coordinated by the CEA, and starting in January 2024.
