Phase shifting autotransformer, transmission switching and battery energy storage systems to ensure n-1 criterion of stability
Keywords:Battery energy storage, N-1 criterion, phase-shifting autotransformer, transmission switching
Since the portion of non-dispatchable renewable generators in the system is increasing, several challenges to the safety and stability of the power system have arisen. The focus of this paper is analyzing local congestion effects in the system by using three distinct methods: phase shifting autotransformer, transmission switching and battery energy storage system. This work includes a review of the congestion management techniques and the results of simulations that utilize phase shifting autotransformer to reduce power flows in the network, and transmission switching and battery energy storage system in order to ensure N-1 stability criterion in case of malfunction of the integrated autotransformer. Power system is modelled and simulated using Power Transmission System Planning Software, a software tool for electric transmission system analysis and planning. Results of simulations are presented, a thorough analysis of the results is performed and justification of investments in proposed methods is elaborated.
