Abstract

Distribution system operators, suppliers, vendors and policy makers lack a common framework in terms of guidelines and recommended practices on the way BESSs should be integrated into the distribution networks of the future. WG C6.30 entitled "The Impact of Battery Energy Storage Systems on Distribution Networks" was set up by SC C6 and approved by the CIGRE TC, to complement and update earlier work carried out by the WGs 6.15 (Electric Energy Storage Systems). This brochure focuses on the following topics:
1) Planning and design considerations for BESS in distribution systems;
2) Operational considerations for BESS in distribution systems;
3) Use-cases and business cases for BESS in distribution systems;
4) Standards and Grid Codes for BESS in distribution systems;
5) Practical international experiences with BESS in distribution systems.
