Virtual power plant with hydrogen storage and fuel cell using oemof-solph

Hi oemof-solph community,

I’m a very newbie in using oemof-solph for doing energy system optimization. For my current study, I want to optimize the size of PV, battery storage and hydrogen-storage-electrolyser-fuel cell system of a grid-connected microgrid by using oemof-solph. Does anyone have examples/experiences for how to modeling a fuel cell (which is a Proton-exchange membrane fuel cell for more detail) and hydrogen-production-storage system? and can give me some advice? or example? Could I just use solph transformer to model fuel cell or should I create a new component for this purpose?

Any help will be appreciated!

Thank you very much.

Best regards,

Long Lê

You can use the Transformer class but you will have a constant efficiency. If you are okay with MILP (instead of pure LP) you can use the OffsetTransformer class or the new PiecewiseLinearTransformer class. The last class is still experimental but should work.

Thank you very much for your suggestion!
