Real-Time HIL Simulation of a Battery Energy Storage System

Batteries are becoming popular options for storage of energy at large scales for application in power systems. A battery energy storage system may be developed using batteries of different chemistries and also batteries that are not necessarily at the same state of health. The capabilities of a battery energy storage system are affected by the characteristics of the batteries that form it. Therefore, it is essential that a storage systems be developed and operated with a full understanding of how these differences affect its performance. This research aims to (i) develop an experimental storage system and investigate how these factors affect the system, and (ii) provide guidelines for operation and controller design for battery storage systems for enhanced operation.
