2014-01: Energy Storage in Power Systems: Technologies, Applications and Future needs
February 4-7, 2014
ETHZ, Zurich and EPFL, Lausanne
Prof. G. Andersson
Prof. M. Paolone
Dr R. Cherkaoui
Objectives of the course
The increase of the penetration of renewable energy resources (RERs) into electrical networks is certainly related to the availability of energy storage systems (ESSs). Indeed, the use of ESSs could, in principle, provide several ancillary services to electrical grids such as: balance of RERs energy production, balance local loads, reserves provision, islanded operation of distribution systems, integration into low voltage microgrids, etc.
The above-mentioned services are characterized by different energy and power requirements that involve the use of appropriate storage technologies. In this respect, the course aims at providing the state-of-the-art of ESSs technologies, their modeling as well as their applications into electrical grids both in large and small scales.
