access icon free Review of energy storage allocation in power distribution networks: applications, methods and future research

Changes in the electricity business environment, dictated mostly by the increasing integration of renewable energy sources characterised by variable and uncertain generation, create new challenges especially in the liberalised market environment. The role of energy storage systems (ESS) is recognised as a mean to provide additional system security, reliability and flexibility to respond to changes that are still difficult to accurately forecast. However, there are still open questions about benefits these units bring to the generation side, system operators and the consumers. This study provides a comprehensive overview of the current research on ESS allocation (ESS sizing and siting), giving a unique insight into issues and challenges of integrating ESS into distribution networks and thus giving framework guidelines for future ESS research.
