Optimal Stationary Fuel Cell Integration and Control (DG-BEAT)

Objective 1 – Energy Dispatch Controller – Implement an open-source dispatch and load control tool for building management that can communicate and transact with a fuel cell integrated building system and the grid for optimized dispatch of building components.

Objective 2 – System Planning Tool – Implement a planning tool for optimal component selection and sizing based on optimal resource control for distributed energy systems and smart building components using location specific energy markets, building energy modeling, and chosen dispatch control strategy.
