Pumped hydro storage plants (PHSP) are considered the most mature large-scale energy storage technology. Although Brazil stands out worldwide in terms of hydroelectric power generation, the use of PHSP in the country is practically nonexistent. Considering the advancement of variable renewable sources in the Brazilian electrical mix, and the need to provide flexibility to the national electrical system, several official documents cite PHSP as an important alternative for the expansion of the…
