Large Scale Aggregation of Prosumers in Energy Communities
A novel scalable and privacy-preserving distributed parallel optimization that allows the participation of large-scale aggregation of prosumers with residential PV-battery systems in the market for the ancillary service (ASM) is proposed in this paper. To consider both reserve capacity and reserve energy, day-ahead and real-time stages in the ASM are considered. A method, based on hybrid Variable Neighbourhood Search (VNS) and distributed parallel optimization is designed for the day ahead and real-time optimization. Different distributed optimization methods are compared and designed, and a new distributed optimization method based on Linear Programming (LP) is designed that overcomes previous methods based on integer and Quadratic programming (QP). The proposed LP-based optimization can be easily coded up and implemented on microcontrollers and connected to a designed Internet of Things (IoT) based architecture. Both day-ahead and real-time proposed optimization methods, by allocating the computational effort among
local resources, are highly scalable and fulfil the privacy of prosumers.

Energy Workshop: Paradigm shift from oil to natural gas in power generation
Published on: 22 April 2021
In the past, power generation in Singapore was mostly from oil-fired Steam Turbine Generators (STG). However, since the arrival of Natural Gas, there was a major shift from STG to Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT). In these series of workshops, the participants will learn the paradigm shift of types of power stations in Singapore, types of fuel used, types of gas supply in Singapore, what is Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission and how can Green Energy be implemented in Singapore.
Many thanks to Cooling Lab for sharing power generation know-how with SPECS members
This ½ day workshop will provide a good perspective of the diversification of fuel sources for Singapore’s power generation. After attended the workshop, participants will have a better understanding on:
1. Rational of the major shifts from oil to natural gas for electricity generation in Singapore.
2. Fundamental change from STG to CCGT power plants.
3. Understanding the paradigm shift and its impact for the electricity supply in Singapore.
4. Understanding the resilient of the natural gas supply and Singapore approach on the diversification of natural gas supply to keep the lights on.
5. Future green energy.
SPECS Energy Workshop
22 April 2021
Paradigm shift from oil to natural gas in power generation
This workshop will give an overview of the oil-fired STG power plant and gas-fired CCGT power plant. The paradigm shift to more efficient gas turbines after the arrival of natural gas is discussed. There is a concern of the resilient of the natural gas supply and also the risks of gas supply continuity which needs to consider. Lastly, there is a decision to switch to LNG which requires new infrastructure of LNG Terminal.
This talk is suitable for engineers, managers and entrepreneurs who wish to have some basic understanding of the electricity and gas supply in Singapore; and areas where there are business opportunities.
Venue: NTU@OneNorth Function Hall 1, Level 1

0900 - 1700 hour
SWA and SPECS aim to bring a networking platform for members from both organization together to learn industrial energy efficiency for Waste Water Treatment Plants in Singapore.
The objective of this course is to introduce pumps, electrical drives, prime movers and their control systems. It shares how the critical equipment can be made to work at maximum efficiency and to help reduce carbon footprint. The course will cover the most common types of motors, electrical drives and asset management principles. By doing so, participants will receive important knowledge and tools to optimize cost, risk and performance.
Participants are expected to understand different types of commonly used motors and their working principles The course will also cover prime movers which are used to drive the electric motors in the most efficient manner Lastly, participants are expected to understand the importance of asset management in improving plant efficiency, reduce maintenance cost and improve profitability.
This course targets engineers and plant managers who want to understand how electrical drives improve the efficiencies of pumps used in wastewater treatment plants. The course is particularly targeted to help participants improve the efficiency of their plant and to reduce running costs by adopting proper asset management tools.
