Grid-Scale Energy Storage Management

gss.jpgDevelopment of management algorithms to optimize operation of grid scale energy storage systems is a key area of research. These storage systems are on the MWh scale and our goal is to provide a variety of services to the grid using energy storage. Developed algorithms utilize the grid scale storage to participate in Independent System Operator (ISO) markets for energy, frequency regulation, reserve, and demand response as well as utility applications such as load management and renewable integration ($20B market by 2024). Our research focuses on coordination of grid scale storage dispatch in multiple simultaneous applications while minimizing its operational cost. Various techniques such as nonlinear optimization, optimal control, parameter identification, and artificial intelligence methods are utilized for modeling and management purposes in our research.
