In the face of the ever-greater participation of the renewable sources of energy in the electric power network, Iberdrola faces the challenge of evaluating the potential of the electrical storage as support system for power generation.
The purpose of the collaboration between IK4-Ikerlan and Iberdrola has been the calculation of the storage level necessary to provide the services of electrical-grid support, maximizing the investment income.
The solution posed has been the design of the ESS2WIND tool, which allows for the analysis of diverse functionalities of grid support on a group of wind farms. From IK4-Ikerlan, we have also participated in the application of the tool to perform dimensioning studies in close collaboration with Iberdrola.
The result of this project will allow Iberdrola Renovables to assess the potential of the storage systems in different scenarios, both nationwide as well as in other markets, opening new business opportunities.
