Research Article


The concept of energy internet has been gradually accepted, which can optimize the consumption of fossil energy and renewable energy resources. When wind power is integrated into the main grid, ramp events caused by stochastic wind power fluctuation may threaten the security of power systems. This paper proposes a dynamic programming method in smoothing ramp events. First, the energy internet model of wind power, pumped storage power station, and gas power station is established. Then, the optimization problem in the energy internet is transformed into a multi-stage dynamic programming problem, and the dynamic programming method proposed is applied to solve the optimization problem. Finally, the evaluation functions are introduced to evaluate pollutant emissions. The results show that the dynamic programming method proposed is effective for smoothing wind power and reducing ramp events in energy internet.
