One of the significant impacts of the growing penetration of intermittent renewable energy sources is upon the frequency response of power system. Compared with the dispersive electric vehicle energy storage, electric vehicle battery swapping station (BSS), as an emerging form of storage, can provide a more reliable supplementary regulation service for frequency control. This study has proposed a new supplementary automatic generation control (AGC) strategy using controllable energy storage in BSSs, referred to as station-to-grid (S2G). A Monte–Carlo stochastic simulation method is utilised to estimate the equivalent controllable capacity (CC) of BSSs, and then the lumped S2G equivalent model subject to SOC limits and CC constrains is presented. A filter-based AGC coordinated strategy is used to allocate the regulation power between generators and BSSs. The proposed AGC strategy is validated in a two-area interconnected power system with significant load and wind power fluctuations. Comparison analysis demonstrates the availability of the proposed models and control methods.
