Environmental Economical Dispatching of Electric–Gas Integrated Energy System Considering Hydrogen Compressed-Natural Gas


As a high-quality secondary energy, hydrogen energy has great potential in energy storage and utilization. The development of power-to-hydrogen (P2H) technology has alleviated the problem of wind curtailment and improved the coupling between the power grid and the natural gas grid. Under the premise of ensuring safety, using P2H technology to mix the produced hydrogen into the natural gas network for long-distance transmission and power generation can not only promote the development of hydrogen energy but also reduce carbon emissions. This paper presents a new model for incorporating hydrogen into natural gas pipelines. To minimize the sum of wind curtailment cost, operation cost and carbon emission cost, an electric–gas integrated energy system (EGIES) model of hydrogen-compressed natural gas (HCNG) containing P2H for power generation is constructed. Aiming at the problem of global warming caused by a lot of abandoned wind and carbon emissions, the economy and environmental protection of the system model are analyzed. The results show that the model of EGIES considering HCNG can not only absorb excess wind power but also reduce carbon emission costs and system costs, which can reduce the total cost of the environmental economic dispatch of the EGIES by about 34.1%. In the context of the EGIES, the proposal of this model is of great significance to the economical and environmentally friendly operation of the system.
