Avoiding Pitfalls in Energy Storage Modelling

The purpose of this article is to distill some of my observations from modelling energy storage in integrated power system planning and dispatch (IPD) models.

As more energy storage systems become part of the electricity grid and microgrids, there is a need to better understand the drivers of policy and investment decisions and their implications on the operational, environmental, and economic attributes of our changing power system landscape [1]. Integrated planning and dispatch models are mathematical programming tools used to simulate, evaluate, and…
