Battery Energy Storage System for Grid Services in Germany and the UK


The presentation details the implementation of BESS in the German and UK for frequency control of the transmission grid: The value of BESS vs other systems, the technology used, the system configuration and reference cases implemented by Belectric.

The presentation at brief: One of the major maintenance challenges of the transmission grid is related to the frequency regulation, making sure the grid frequency is kept within the allowed range. This is managed by the grid operator mainly though adjustment of the amount of generation to the load at all times. The response time of the generation capacity is extremely critical to keep the grid stable. Traditionally this is implemented through adjusting the capacity of generation systems which are able to response within few minutes. BESS on the other hand are capable to response in milliseconds and so have incomparable benefit vs any traditional generation system.

While providing those services BESS are practically acting as both electricity generator and a load, capable of either generating energy to the grid when the frequency drops or consuming energy from the grid when the frequency increases.

The BESS design is driven by the requirements of the grid operator, eg the amount and duration of the required power and the batteries’ charge and discharge schemes.

BESS for grid frequency regulation were implemented during the last few years in Germany and the UK with few other European countries expected to follow during the next few years. Those implementations had clearly demonstrated the superiority of BESS over other systems and the great business potential for BESS also for other grid services and other applications.

Daily Operation Planning – Regulation and Optimization


The opening of the local power market to the private sector led to development and implementations of optimization processes as a domestic factor in the daily generation planning.

The existing optimization tools on the worldwide electricity market present the enormous capability to enclose the risks and to establish a support decision tool in-order to allow consideration of various boundary conditions, and to find the optimal solution. Those existing tools need to be modifying in-order to meet the changes in Israel development market.

The development phase, is essential in-order to have a valid tools, need to define the scope of optimizations (which is different for each player) the technical parameters of the Power Plant (including complying with the permits, licenses, etc…) including operation regimes and maintenance aspects, combine with the unique business model are the initial and basic steps for evaluation of the existing potential to achieve benefits from those optimization tools.

Nevertheless the optimization platform must take into accounts the regulations rules which consistency modifying and be flexible in-order to integrate future changes as well as assure the level Power Plant`s expose of to specific changes in parameters.

By the end of the day the aim is that those optimization tools eventually will become more and more part of the routine automatic daily planning production processes.

Japanese Power Market Regulation – Large Scale Battery Storage as a Solution for Challenges in Ancillary Services


Large integration of photovoltaics has already caused the deterioration of the power quality such as the short-term voltage and frequency variation due to their intermittency and the long-term active power balance between demand and supply due to the overgeneration in Japan. The energy storage system can be one of the promising countermeasures for resolving the aforementioned technical issues related to the power quality. Japanese government has launched large number of demonstration projects using the large capacity batteries for the large-scale network and small capacity batteries for the small isolated grids. Most of the batteries have been installed into the commercial network and different types of batteries have been selected for accumulating the experience on the power system operation with the batteries. The large capacity batteries are expected to cope with the diminishing secondary frequency control capability as well las the violation of the power balance due to the overgeneration, while the small capacity batteries are expected to cope with the violation of the voltage variation as well as the diminishing primary frequency control capability. The cooperative operation of two different types of batteries has been examined in one small isolated commercial grid. The EMS has been newly integrated into another small isolated commercial grid for further improvement of cooperative operation with the conventional diesel engine units, the batteries and the renewable energy sources. The demonstration projects using the large capacity batteries have just begun and Japan is in the process of accumulating the operational experience, while the demonstration projects using the small capacity batteries have accumulated plenty of experience on how to specify the type of batteries and to design the battery controls from power system dynamics perspectives. This presentation overviews the large number of demonstration projects in Japan focusing on the practical experience on the recommended generic procedure for installing the batteries in the small isolated grids.
