The increased adoption of renewable energy generation is reducing the inertial response of the Great Britain (GB) power system, which translates into larger frequency variations in both transient and pseudo-steady-state operation. To help mitigate this, National Grid, the transmission system operator in GB, has designed a control scheme called enhanced frequency response (EFR) specifically aimed at energy storage systems (ESSs). This study proposes a control system that enables the provision of EFR services from a multi-electrical ESS and at the same time allows the management of the state of charge (SOC) of each ESS. The proposed control system uses a Fuzzy Logic Controller to maintain the SOC as near as possible to the desired SOC of each ESS while providing EFR. The performance of the proposed controller is validated in transient and steady-state domains. Simulation results highlight the benefits of managing the SOC of the energy storage assets with the proposed controller. These benefits include a reduced rate of change of frequency and frequency nadir following a loss of generation as well as an increase in the service performance measure which renders into increased economic benefits for the service provider.
