Abstract
This paper presents a method to size battery energy storage systems (BESSs) to minimize underfrequency load shedding in island power systems. The proposed method depends on a simplified representation of the power system, where generating units are represented by first-order systems. An analytical expression is derived to estimate the BESS size. The proposed method has been applied to two Spanish isolated power systems. Dynamic simulations with PSS/E software package confirm the proposed method to size BESS. BESS with a capacity around 6% to 9% of the installed generation capacity are needed to avoid load shedding.
