Energy Storage and Demand Response
£30,000.00
This project aims to investigate the feasibility of using different type of energy storage devices on the distribution network as a means of balancing distributed generation outputs with load demands.

The project will investigate a range of primary asset technologies (energy storage, VAr compensation, dynamic circuit ratings) and their application to two identified case studies. Within each case study the driver is to maximise generation output while minimising conventional assets, namely overhead lines.

The project aims to investigate technologies which will make distributed generation connections make feasible by helping to resolve some of the issues they cause on distribution network
