Impact of Energy Storage Systems in Distribution Network Operational Planning Tools (ESSDistrib)

Type: Contract Project

Duration: from 2022 May 01 to 2022 Jun 30

Financed by: Électricité de France (EDF)

Prime Contractor: R - INESC-ID Lisboa (Other) - Lisboa, Portugal

Evaluate the impact of Energy Storage Systems (ESS) based on Li-ion batteries in the operational planning tools used by distribution system operators. In the last two years, ESSs have been installed in medium voltage networks mainly in wind farms. The coordination between wind
production and ESS will change the generation profile of wind farms and consequently the anticipation of constraints in operational planning.
In this project, it is expected to evaluate the impact of these changes and propose some strategies to mitigate their impact on the operational planning accuracy.
