Abstract

The future trends of the industry require major renovations in the infrastructure of transmission, distribution, and storing of generated energy. With the increased use of renewable energy across the globe, energy storage (ES) systems have started to play a prominent role in shaping the future of the ES market. However, because of the uneven distribution of the renewable energy throughout the world, more emphasis must be made to the integration of power grids with the ES devices to utilize the excess power more effectively. In this paper, a study is performed regarding the integration of a hybrid system, consisting of a lithium-ion battery (LIB) and superconducting magnetic energy storage (SMES), into an interconnected microgrid operation. The structure of a microgrid is explained by analyzing the selected battery (LIB) and voltage source converter (VSC)-based SMES unit via MATLAB & Simulink. Finally, the voltage waveforms are compared and discussed in detail.
