Electrical energy storage is considered essential for the future energy system to solve the intermittency problems caused by renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power. Among all the energy storage technologies, battery systems may provide flexibility in a more distributed and decentralized way. In countries with deregulated electricity markets, grid-connected battery systems should participate in the electric power system and interact with other market players. In this study, the…
