Applications and technology specifications for a pilot project of battery storage in distribution networks

  • Year
  • 2020
  • Client
  • PREdistribuce

The study outlined a number of potential applications of energy storage in the distribution grid and set out technical and functional specifications of a pilot instalation.  The contents in brief:

  Detailed description of applications relevant for pilot testing

Overview of possible technological solutions

Review of potential technology suppliers

Functional and technical specification of a pilot instalation

Basic design of the battery management system

Just as larger battery systems help stabilize the grid at higher voltage levels today, smaller battery installations will be used in the future to stabilize the low voltage grid. A study combining the future expectations of the distribution network operator with practical experience from today's market represents the first step for developing projects in this area.
