  • Dispatching of wind farms using battery energy storage

    In this paper, a STATCOM interfaced battery energy storage system (BESS) is considered for smoothing intermittent power output of a large wind farm so that it can be dispatched. The main advantage of the system is that it can inject both real power (by charging/discharging the BESS) and the reactive power to the system. The paper investigates the main design issues related to BESS – the control ...

  • Bringing stability to the Grid: AES Energy storage angamos Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) - Case Study

    Opportunity In 2011, AES Gener, in cooperation with its subsidiary Empresa Electrica Angamos, completed construction on a 544MW thermal power plant in the town of Mejillones in Northern Chile. The plant provides electricity to this important mining region. To ensure grid reliability against transmission or generation losses, power generators in the region each hold back capacity to meet ...

  • Control and small-signal analysis of battery and supercapacitor hybrid energy storage systems

    This paper is devoted to control strategies for an active battery and supercapacitor hybrid energy storage system using the master-slave control scheme, where the charging and discharging currents of the supercapacitor are dependent on that of battery and the current sharing ratio depends upon the load conditions. A small-signal model is proposed, which considers the variations in the currents of ...

  • Beyond the Tesla Powerwall: How energy storage is shaping up in Ontario - How energy storage changes everything

    There are not many entrepreneurs who can command a room like Elon Musk. When he stepped onto a stage in May to unveil the Powerwall the audience oohed and ahhed and dutifully pre-ordered more than 38,000 of Tesla’s new home battery systems. And while Tesla gets the headlines other energy storage ...

  • We don’t want energy storage

    Claiming that we don’t want energy storage seems like a provocative thing to say. For example, the Energy Institute (EI)’s 2015 Energy Barometer report, a survey of professionals in the energy industry, rated storage as the area most in need of innovation. My point isn’t that energy storage isn’t ...

  • How Energy Storage Can Pave the Way for Renewable Energy Adoption

    Introduction Renewable energy offers a hopeful promise to reduce the energy sector’s carbon footprint, but many challenges must be addressed before it can be more extensively integrated into our society. One of the greatest barriers to widespread adoption is quite simply that due to the nature of renewable energy – the fact that it is produced only when solar rays, wind, etc. ...

  • Environmental impacts of integrating wind energy systems and supplemental energy generation and storage systems

    Wind energy systems offer a promising alternative energy source due to the environmental, economic, and social benefits and, as a result, have garnered support for development and implementation. One of the major drawbacks of wind energy, however, is its variability due to the stochastic nature of wind, thus, supplemental energy generation or storage technologies are required. In this study, a ...

  • Automotive Manufacturers Conquer the Storage Market

    At least since the end of April, when Tesla introduced its Powerwall, everyone seems to be talking about the market for stationary battery-storage systems. At any rate, it was the dominant topic at Intersolar. I asked Volker Wachenfeld, an SMA expert in storage technology, about his assessment of the market and SMA’s plans for battery-storage systems going forward. - See more at: ...

  • Closer Look at the Capacity of SLA Batteries and Solar Energy Systems

    Sealed lead acid (SLA) batteries have a reputation for being durable when used to support portable electronic devices. They require minimal maintenance and offer leak-proof capabilities. But when used with solar energy systems, the units present issues that can hinder the potential and performance of the machines. For example, general purpose SLA batteries should not be deep cycled, as ...

  • 7 Theses on Storage Systems in Commercial Applications

    Solar storage systems are now the focus of attention more than ever before. The application areas are as different as the requirements. While private PV system operators work toward optimizing self-consumption, storage systems in industry are mainly used to provide control reserve and thus ensure grid stability. In commercial storage ...

  • Power conditioning of an uncontrolled micro-hydroturbine-driven induction generator for distributed generation using a battery energy storage system

    Distributed Generation (DG) and its interconnection to the AC power grid is a relatively new concept. DG employs small generators, which are distributed throughout the power system. The electricity is usually generated by renewable energy sources such as wind, hydro and tidal, which are intermittent in nature. These generators connected to the AC grid may lead to severe power quality problems. ...
