I am just starting off with energy modelling in general and oemof in particular. So, please apologize any possible triviality of my topic!
The optimization problem I would like to approach is the following: take a (simplified) model with source, sink and storage:
Bus | Src ----------------->| (time dependant) | |------------------> Sink (fix) | (time dependant) | | |---------> | Storage |<---------
The idea is that the storage will buffer the energy to compensate for differences between sink and source (at a given point in time).
The optimization should now result in a nominal value for the source, keeping its time dependant structure. Of course, in this simple case it should match the nominal value of the sink (with normalized time dependant weights).
What is the best way to approach this optimization?
One (naive) idea is to optimize the model with an additional excess source and/or sink, recalculate the nominal value of the source, recreate and reoptimize the model until the excess entities are consistent with zero?!
But most probably there is a ‘omoef’-intrisic solution for the problem? Any comments are appreciated!
