Integrated Operation is a strategy to operate the Energy MicroGrid as an integrated system. In this strategy, a CHP plant, an electric water heater, and thermal storage were operated to support both electricity and heat networks of the Energy MicroGrid. An Integrated Optimal Power Flow was formulated and was used to investigate the advantages of this Integrated Operation. Simulations indicated that Integrated Operation minimised generation curtailment and load shedding. It also reduced electricity imported from the main grid and the operating cost.
