An Enhanced Multifunctional Battery Energy Storage System for Energy Management and Power Quality Improvement - Year two
Canada is becoming an international leader in energy storage systems. Battery energy storage systems (BESS) are one of the key parts of the storage landscape and can serve a wide range of applications across the electricity supply chain. The focus of this research project is on the application of BESS in mitigating power quality issues in industrial facilities. An enhanced configuration is designed to enable BESS to provide multiple supplementary functionalities such as energy management solutions to their host industrial facility, in addition to their contribution to power quality improvement. A scaled-down experimental setup will be constructed for testing and verifying the performance of the proposed BESS.
