This work is part of a bigger project which aims to research the potential development of commercial opportunities for the re-use of batteries after their use in low carbon vehicles on an electricity grid or microgrid system. There are three main revenue streams (peak load lopping on the distribution Network to allow for network re-enforcement deferral,(More)
Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) is a helpful tool to understand how a battery is behaving and how it degrades. One of the disadvantages is that it is typically an “off-line” process. This paper investigates an alternative method of looking at impedance spectroscopy of a battery system while it is on-line and operational by(More)
Previous research has revealed that 3-D display formats do not always improve user performance. [3] This report describes an experiment to determine the utility of using a three-dimensional (3-D) format for monitoring air traffic of a Department of Defense real-time display. An overwhelming quantity of data must be assimilated by personnel monitoring a(More)
The high cost of batteries has led to investigations in using second-life ex-transportation batteries for grid support applications. Vehicle manufacturers currently all have different specifications for battery chemistry, arrangement of cells, capacity and voltage. With anticipated new developments in battery chemistry which could also affect these(More)
One of the major characteristic of a smart protection system in Smart grid is to automatically reconfigure the network for operational conditions improvement or during emergency situations avoiding outage on one hand and ensuring power system reliability the other hand. This paper proposes a modified form of particle swarm optimization to identify the(More)
This paper is aimed at new entrants into the field of electrical community energy. It reviews some of the work that is underway into community electrical energy projects. This review includes a summary of key issues and components which need consideration including some or all of the following; demand side management, energy storage (including vehicle to(More)
National Grid has a statutory obligation to manage the frequency between pre-defined limits. If there isn't effective frequency response available then the likelihood of a frequency excursion outside of statutory limits will increase. To this end, National Grid are going to trial enhanced frequency response as a mechanism to assist with frequency control in(More)
