Quantifying network flexibility requirements in terms of energy storage
The energy storage requirement modelling tool outlined here uses an extension of the pinch methodology to quantify the network flexibility required due to greater variable renewable energy (VRE) integration. Quantifying this as the magnitude of energy storage required as a function of storage duration provides improved understanding of the fundamental balancing problem. Identification of the impact that key decision variables, such as location, VRE penetration and VRE that is supplied through...Expand abstract
