Energy storage systems (ESSs) have features that can help solve various problems in the power system, such as renewable power shortage because of utility peak load. Energy storage technology and markets are gradually developing in the Taiwan power grid. In contrast to the conventional power grid model, energy storage employs a new technology in the power system. Although energy storage has several advantages in the power system, there are also challenges in its application. In this study, we investigated battery applications in ESSs and set up a simulation model to determine its benefits on power load. We implemented an ESS model to demonstrate that energy storage helps stabilize power load in various power events to prevent power load interruption.
