Load Frequency Control of Microgrid System by Battery and Pumped-Hydro Energy Storage

Energy security is one of the main factors in the development and diffusion of microgrid applications. In networks operating without storage, the operation of their systems is greatly affected by

Economic Analysis of the Investments in Battery Energy Storage Systems: Review and Current Perspectives

The paper makes evident the growing interest of batteries as energy storage systems to improve techno-economic viability of renewable energy systems and indicates the need to use adequate economic indicators for investment decisions.

Electricity storage requirements to support the transition towards high renewable penetration levels: Application to the Greek power system

This paper investigates the electricity storage requirements to support the transition towards a high renewable energy source (RES) penetration in a cost-optimal manner. The achieved reduction of

The design space for long-duration energy storage in decarbonized power systems

Long-duration energy storage (LDES) is a potential solution to intermittency in renewable energy generation. In this study we have evaluated the role of LDES in decarbonized electricity systems and

Keep the Lights On: Ensuring Bulk-Power System Reliability in a Decarbonized Future

Policy and market forces are ushering in a new power system, one dominated by variable renewable energy (VRE) resources (wind and solar) and energy-limited resources like energy storage. Because

Overview of Technical Specifications for Grid-Connected Microgrid Battery Energy Storage Systems

Increasing distributed topology design implementations, uncertainties due to solar photovoltaic systems generation intermittencies, and decreasing battery costs, have shifted the direction towards

Understanding the Role and Design Space of Demand Sinks in Low-carbon Power Systems

This study uses an electricity system optimization model to assess 98 discrete combinations of capital costs and output values that collectively span the range of feasible characteristics of potential demand sink technologies and finds that candidates like hydrogen electrolysis, direct air capture and flexible electric heating can all achieve significant installed capacity.

Power network planning with flexibility under long-term renewable capacity and location uncertainties

Transmission and Distribution system operators are responsible for planning their future network developments. This task becomes more complex with the increased renewable capacity connected to the



Value of Energy Storage for Grid Applications

This analysis evaluates several operational benefits of electricity storage, including load-leveling, spinning contingency reserves, and regulation reserves. Storage devices were simulated in a

Whole-Systems Assessment of the Value of Energy Storage in Low-Carbon Electricity Systems

A novel whole-systems approach to valuing the contribution of grid-scale electricity storage is presented, which simultaneously optimizes investment into new generation, network and storage capacity, while minimising system operation cost, and also considering reserve and security requirements.
