Webinar details

The challenges posed by the intermittent nature of renewable energy resources, particularly in wind and PV power plants, present significant obstacles for countries with substantial installations of such energy sources. For instance, during peak power generation periods, an excess of generated power from renewable sources beyond load demand can lead to power system overload, triggering protection devices. An effective solution to this issue is incorporating energy storage systems.

This webinar aims to elucidate various energy storage systems, primarily focusing on battery energy storage systems. It will comprehensively review diverse battery technologies, comparing their respective features. Additionally, a concise examination of power electronic converters, essential for linking battery energy storage systems to the grid, will be provided. Finally, the webinar will delve into an overview of different grid support functions, including virtual inertia, peak shaving, and time shifting.
