I am new in this group, but in modeling and using oemof and python as well.
I am working on a multi-point optimisation of an energy system, where each point, or each node has defined energy components (sources, demand, transformers, storages).
The optimisation objective is efficiency, so the energy should be sent where is most efficient.
I struggle with two problems:
- Transfering energy between 2 points: at the moment i am using 2 transforms, point 1–> point 2, and point 2–> point 1. There must be simpler and cleverer solution to define power lines and transfer of electricity. COuld you maybe give me hints in that regard?
2.Loops in the system: i have the problem where energy is being destroyed by sending it to a lopp between 2 points, or takes big amounts of energy from the storage, uses very small amount of it, and the rest goes back to storage; so it doesn’t just take from storage as much as it needs.
Is there a way to constrain the storage so that it can’t charge and discharg at the same time?
Hope to hear (read) from you
