Abstract

Grid-connected battery energy storage systems with fast acting control are a key technology for improving power network stability and increasing the penetration of renewable generation. This paper describes two battery energy storage research facilities connected to the UK electricity grid. Their performance is detailed, along with hardware results, and a number of grid support services are demonstrated, again with results presented. The facility operated by The University of Manchester is rated at 236kVA, 180kWh, and connected to the 400V campus power network, The University of Sheffield operates a 2MVA, 1MWh facility connected to an 11kV distribution network.
