Abstract

Home energy systems that can produce, store and manage electricity are efficient solutions to satisfying the growing demand of power in home installations by the exploitation of renewable sources. The design of systems that assure autonomy without oversizing the production with respect to expected requirements can be greatly facilitated by the use of tools for modelling and evaluating performances by simulation in a simple way. Here, we propose a method to model home energy systems by means of Petri Nets and, on that basis, we describe conceptually a software simulation tool, called EPSS (Energy Production and Storage Simulator), that can be used for analyzing the system’s behavior and optimizing its structure with respect to autonomy and self-consumption.
