This paper proposes a multisource multiproduct framework for coupled multicarrier energy supplies with a biogas-solar-wind hybrid renewable system. In this framework, the biogas-solar-wind complementarities are fully exploited based on digesting thermodynamic effects for the synergetic interactions of electricity, gas, and heating energy flows, and a coupling matrix is formulated for the modeling of production, conversion, storage, and consumption of different energy carriers. The multienergy complementarity of biogas-solar-wind renewable portfolio can be utilized to facilitate the mitigation of renewable intermittency and the efficient utilization of batteries, and a multicarrier generation scheduling scheme is further presented to dynamically optimize dispatch factors in the coupling matrix for energy-efficient conversion and storage, while different energy demands of end-users are satisfied. The proposed methodology has been fully tested and benchmarked on a stand-alone Microgrid over a 24-h scheduling horizon. Comparative results demonstrate that the proposed scheme can lower the battery charging/discharging actions as well as the degradation cost, and also confirm its capability to accommodate high penetration of variable renewables.
