Battery electric storage systems (BESS) are increasingly being used for power system applications such as grid stabilization, load shifting, grid operational support, power quality improvement, reliability management and enhancing rooftop solar hosting capability. The BESSs could also perform an important role in providing arbitrage and increasing the value of renewable energy resources. The benefits that electric storage systems bring in are, namely: electric energy time shift or energy arbitrage, frequency regulation, voltage and reactive power support, Peak /congestion management, Technical loss reduction and asset life enhancement, distribution upgrade deferral, spinning, non-spinning, and supplemental (black start) reserves, power quality improvement, power reliability improvement and demand charge management. BESS systems at the distribution level may displace diesel gensets which commonly backstop system reliability.
