Power-Quality-using-Large-Scale-Energy-Storage

 

The origins of battery storage systems were typically to provide reliable power to remote sites, whilst the focus of converter and battery technology was primarily residential / smaller scale installations. Improvements in converter control system technology has resulted in systems having greater functionality, and new applications providing improved power system quality for larger scales. Currently utilities are looking at utilising this technology to reduce peak loads on sections of a network. Here are several other applications to improve power system quality.
