Modern electric power systems are rapidly adopting renewable energy resources. This positive movement, however, does bring with it major challenges to the way we operate power systems. In particular we may face drastic frequency changes and far-reaching transient phenomena. One way to remedy these is to deploy energy storage systems, such a s batteries, to assist the power system in maintaining its frequency and in releasing and absorbing bursts of power that are required to do so. This internship will look into developing methods for using energy storage in conjunction with power-electronic converters so that local sources/sinks of power available to the converters that assist in maintaining the system’s frequency.
