Compressed Air Energy Storage

This is a model of a Renewable Compressed Air Energy Storage System (CAES)

The model uses PV cells, to run a DC motor which drives an air compressor. The compressed air then turns a air motor to run a AC generator.

The system is not operating correctly due to an error with the pneumatic motor. I am not sure how to fix this to get the model to work.

Any advice or improvements are appreciated.
 

Thanks

Thank you for your great guides. If we do well maintain, we'll save money for buying a new one. but when it expired or broke, we should purchase on a new air compressor. Go through http://aircompressorlab.com/ to read more about best small air compressor reviews.

help me rectify this error..!!
while running.. it terminates in-between and shows this error..!!

An error occurred while running the simulation and the simulation was terminated

Steady state solve failed to converge.
...Nonlinear solver to advance time one step failed to converge due to Linear Algebra error. Failed to solve using iteration matrix.

......Equations (including nonlinear equations) of one or more components may be dependent or inconsistent. This can cause problems in transient initialization. Here is the set of components involved:

Hello there,

didn't understand what are you willing do with your model? There are many energy conversions from Electric to Mechanic to pneumatic and to electric finally. Why all these conversions?

First, you have to know that solvers ode15s and ode23t are most valuable for simscape models.

Then you should really understand your system before trying to model it.

let me know if you have any other questions.
