Abstract

Because of the increased concerns regarding the environmental influences of the electricity sector, there has been growing interest in RE resources [1], such as wind turbines, photovoltaic systems, hydropower turbines, gas micro-turbines, fuel cells, hybrid power systems, biomass power plants and combined heat and power (CHP) microturbines, are used in power generation systems [9]. ESS allow capture and storage of RE for later use, instead of losing excess electricity for which there is no demand. In addition they are used to smooth the output from intermittent and unpredictable generators and to reduce exchange of power across the network [3]. In addition to the benefits listed above, ESS improves flexibility in supply of energy, by hiding the gap between supply and demand [4]. Therefore, ESS can enhance the efficiency of power systems; improve grid stability and reliability as well as contributing to continuity of supply and energy security [7]. Applications of ESS include vehicles and stationary energy resources, which may include distribution and transmission networks, renewable and distributed energy resources, and equipment belonging to local industrial and commercial customers [8].
