Optimal Grid-Forming Control of Battery Energy Storage Systems Providing Multiple Services: Modelling and Experimental Validation

  title={Optimal Grid-Forming Control of Battery Energy Storage Systems Providing Multiple Services: Modelling and Experimental Validation},
  author={F. Gerini and Yihui Zuo and Rahul Kumar Gupta and Elena Vagnoni and Rachid Cherkaoui and Mario Paolone},
This paper proposes and experimentally validates a joint control and scheduling framework for a grid-forming converter-interfaced BESS providing multiple services to the electrical grid. The framework is designed to dispatch the operation of a distribution feeder hosting heterogeneous prosumers according to a dispatch plan and provide frequency containment reserve and voltage control as additional services. The framework consists of three phases. In the day-ahead scheduling phase, a robust…

This survey paper gives an overview of the current research in the field of HVDC grids focusing on the interaction of the AC and DC system, and two relevant cases are specifically addressed: the connection of offshore wind power through aHVDC system and the optimal operation of the power system with a strong presence of HYDC.
A Comprehensive Assessment of the Short-Term Uncertainty of Grid-Connected PV Systems
This work proposes and validate a comprehensive method to assess the overall PV power uncertainties, even at operating conditions different from the maximum power point, i.e., to consider when power curtailment strategies are adopted on a controllable PV plant.
NV Energy Large-Scale Photovoltaic Integration Study: Intra-Hour Dispatch and AGC Simulation
The uncertainty and variability with photovoltaic (PV) generation make it very challenging to balance power system generation and load, especially under high penetration cases. Higher reserve
