Abstract:

Demands for high performance battery solutions are expected to accelerate the adoption of renewable energy resources. This is especially true for microgrids. Microgrids are attractive settings for wind turbines and photovoltaic panels. However, susceptibility to wind spikes, lulls and rolling clouds can lead to significant frequency variations and voltage drops. Beyond concerns over equipment damage of traditional generation assets, the intermittency associated with renewable generation increases maintenance and fuel costs. As a result, Microgrids are well positioned to benefit from battery-based storage systems for maintaining reliability and power quality.
