Abstract

This paper proposes an effective control methodology for the Energy Storage System (ESS), compensating for renewable energy intermittency. By connecting generation variability and the preset service range of the State of Charge (SOC), this methodology successfully secures the desired SOC range while smoothing out power fluctuations. Adaptive to grid conditions, it can adjust response time (control bandwidth) of the ESS via energy feedback coefficients subject to the ESS capacity and its SOC range. This flexibility facilitates the process of developing ESS operation and planning strategies. Mathematical analysis proves that the proposed method controls the ESS to perform best for specific frequency bands associated with power fluctuation. Time-domain simulation studies along with power-spectrum analysis using PSCAD and MATLAB demonstrate the excellent power-smoothing performance to the power grid.
