Abstract

This paper describes a control algorithm for a Wide Area Energy Storage and Management System (WAEMS). The WAEMS is designed to meet the demand for fast, accurate and reliable regulation services in multi-area power systems with a significant share of wind power and other intermittent generation. The means are utilization of flywheel energy storage units, hydro power generation, and energy exchange among the participating control areas. The objective of the control algorithm is to respond to the control signals from the different system operators, whilst optimizing the hydro power plant operation by reducing the tear and wear on the mechanical parts and improving the energy efficiency of the plant. The performance of the WAEMS is simulated using a mathematical model, including hydro power plant and flywheel energy storage models. ACE measurements from the California ISO and Bonneville Power Administration control areas are used as control signals to the WAEMS. Simulations demonstrate excellent regulation response and break-through results in terms of improved hydro power plant operation.
