Project Details

Description

Modeling, Analysis and Control Methods in Support of Flagstaff Energy Storage Project Modeling, Analysis and Control Methods in Support of Flagstaff Energy Storage Project APS is installing a Li-ion battery based energy storage system rated at 1.5 MWh - 500 kW peak power with a 3 hour storage capacity, with extensive battery management system and power converters for grid interface. The storage system is planned to be installed at the Elden substation in Phase 1 with the objective of studying performance in terms of peak shaving, load following and support to distribution system operation. In Phase 2, the storage system will be installed at the Doney Park renewable energy site coupled with 600 kW PV generation with the objectives of studying the effectiveness of storage in mitigating adverse effects of solar variability, and accommodating mismatch between peak load and peak PV generation. Doney Park site is in the Sandvig feeder where a high penetration of solar PV is currently being implemented and studied extensively, with ASU leading the corresponding modeling effort.
