Abstract

In view of the Three North areas existing wind power absorption and environment pollution problems, the previous scholars have improved the wind abandon problem by adding electrothermal coupling equipment or optimizing power grid operation. In this paper, an electrothermal integrated energy system including heat pump and thermal storage units was proposed. The scheduling model was based on the load data and the output characteristics of power units, each power unit capacity was programmed without constraints, and the proposed scheduling model was compared with the traditional combined heat and power scheduling model. Results showed that the investment and pollutant discharge of the system was reduced respectively. Wind power was fully absorbed. Compared with the traditional thermal power unit, the proportion of the output was significantly decreased by the proposed model. The proposed system could provide a new prospect for wind power absorption and environment protection.
