Integration of energy storage into a micro energy grid (MEG) has a significant impact on power flow and operating conditions at the utility equipment and customer ends. Depending on the type of energy storage and grid connection type, these storage elements could positively impact the voltage quality criteria. Energy storage systems—like battery storage, flywheel, super capacitor, and super-conducting magnetic energy storage—are employed as an important part of the modern MEG. They could provide benefits such as ...
