Battery Energy Storage Systems: Grid Applications, Technologies, and Modelling


The Smart Grid describes a next-generation electrical power system that is typified by the increased use of communications and information technology in the generation, delivery, and consumption of electrical energy worldwide.

IEEE Smart Grid is hosting the next webinar in the popular series on varying aspects of grid modernization globally.

Complimentary Webinar:

Battery Energy Storage Systems: Grid Applications, Technologies, and Modelling

Presenter: Dr. Saeed Kamalinia, Assistant Manager – Consulting and Analytical Services at S&C Electric Company

Thursday, January 28, 2016 | 1:00pm – 2:00pm ET

Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) are applied to serve a variety of functions in the generation, transmission and distribution of electric energy, as well as providing end-energy user benefits. Emerging renewable energy technologies and microgrid applications introduce an increasing interest for using BESS to enhance the stability and efficiency of the power system by decoupling the generation source from the load. A BESS can perform active and reactive power control, voltage support and frequency regulation, renewable energy smoothing, peak shaving, demand reduction, support for islanding operations, reliability improvement, deferring costly line upgrade projects, among others.

The webinar will provide an overview of the various application of BESS and recent projects experience, and also introduces a scoring system based on the technical and financial metrics to help applying the proper battery technology, which suits specific project applications. This webinar will also present an example of the modeling of the BESS application to allow more detailed performance evaluation of BESS response.
