Utility and or Customer Provides Electrical Energy Storage in Conjunction with Photovoltaic

This use case will describe the process to allow the Utility and/or a Customer to provide electrical energy storage in conjunction with PV. In the first scenario the Customer uses AMI data, including dynamic economic signals (or tariffs), to adjust their load profile using electrical energy storage to optimize their energy costs/profits. The second scenario the Utility utilizes energy storage to mitigate adverse affects on voltage levels due to sudden output reductions impacting Load Tap Changers and Capacitor Bank Controls. The issue of how the Utility will strategically implement electrical energy storage, Load Tap Changers and Capacitor Bank Controls to minimize the affects of large scale cloud transients on the PV systems will be addressed here.
