Multimarket Services for Stationary Batteries - Considering Activation of Frequency Containment Normal Operation Reserves
Challenge and objective
- Wind and solar power, poses challenges related to their weather-dependent nature and the need for rotational inertia in the system. These challenges necessitate exploring new sources of flexibility to ensure stable grid operation.
- The objective of this work is to explore the viability of utilising stationary storage systems for delivering multiple services. Particular attention is given to markets for frequency reserves.
- Develop a scheduling model for a battery located in a household with a photovoltaic (PV) generation.
- Co-optimizing spot market and reserve market operation (The FCR-N market).
- Analysing a case study for a household in Hvaler.
- Providing FCR-N reserves in addition to other services resulted in declined annual expenses.
- Although the operational costs increased, the financial benefit of procuring FCR-N reserves resulted in overall decreased expenses.
- Further, the annual expenses decreased considerably after incorporating the compensation for activated energy accosted with FCR-N reserves. Impact for distribution system innovation: End-users can provide multiple services with single flexible resource, at different system operating levels.
