Energy Networks seminar: Calculating the Contribution of Storage to Capacity Adequacy

17th December 2015, 13:00 to 14:00, E245, Engineering and Computer Sciences

Seminar by Dr Gruffudd Edwards

This work presents a model for calculating the potential contribution of a generic electrical storage to the capacity adequacy of a power system. It does so by assuming that the objective of the storage operator is to minimise the Expected Energy Not Served (EENS) of the system over the peak demand season. Decisions are made on the basis of probabilistic forecasts about the balance of total system demand and generation, i.e. we conduct a single bus analysis. By assuming that night-time charging has only negligible impact on EENS, stores are characterised entirely by their energy and power export capacities. A representation of the GB system of 2014 is chosen as an exemplar.
