Abstract

With the increase in energy costs and the growth in the need for it, a large number of challenges have been faced by electric power companies in order to improve their networks without significantly increasing their generation, transmission and distribution costs. On the other hand, the integration of unconventional renewable energies characterized by a variable and uncertain generation it creates new challenges, especially regarding the electric market. In this context, Energy Storage Systems (ESS) are recognized for being able to provide additional support to the electric power systems, with a lot of benefits for the network. In order to make the most benefits that the ESS can integrate into the systems, it is necessary to locate and dimension them strategically in the network. This study provides a way to address the problem of sizing and sitting of ESS in a distribution network, with the possibility of performing interactive simulations that allow the user to choose a solution according to the expected characteristics to achieve on the network.
