AbstractThe size of the optimization problems (linear, non-linear, and integer) that must be solved at present has grown orders of magnitude in the last 30 years, to the point that problems unthinkable a few years ago are already being addressed by leading technology companies. The ultimate goal of this project is to develop optimization methods for large problems (which usually implies a certain structure in the problem), both deterministic and stochastic, and their application to real cases. The project therefore pursues both methodological and applied objectives.

MSc Thesis on distributed battery energy storage systems in energy retail markets

 Distributed BESS in a neighborhood. Image from Mr. M. Sisovs's MSc Thesis report.Last September 16 2016 Mr Maksims Sisovs, student of the "KIC InnoEnergy" Master of Science in Smart Electrical Networks and Systems defended their MSc Thesis A Study on Feasibility of the Distributed Battery Energy Storage Systems in Spanish Retail Electricity Market. This project was proposed by Minsait, an advanced technological consultancy from the Indra's group, and developed under my academical supervision. The objective of the study was to analyse the business opportunity of distributed battery energy storage systems deployed in residential neighbourhoods (LiIon batteries, both static devices and mobile through electrical vehicle). The methodology applied was based on the adaptation of the mathematical optimization model presented in the paper Economic analysis of battery electric storage systems operating in electricity markets (Heredia et al. 2015) to the data of the smart meters deployed by several electrical utilities (more than 20 millions of consumption readings). This work deserved the maximum grade, A+ with honours.

AbstractThe main focus of this master thesis project is to evaluate the economic, technical and regulatory feasibility of distributed battery energy storage systems (BESS) and the potential opportunity of electricity companies to increase their pro ts through advanced operation in energy services, such as electric energy time-shift, ancillary or electric vehicle incentives in Spanish electricity market. To assess the feasibility, an optimization tool has been developed. This tool simulates energy trading between diff erent market participants with particular features extracted from data analysis and literature. Load consumption pro les had been developed from smart meter real data by applying several data mining techniques. This part had been guided by external collaborating entity Minsait. Electricity market analysis includes the overview of its functionality principles and regulatory side regarding storage adaptation and speci fic service applicability. Market historical prices were used for further electricity trading simulation. A brief technical insight explains current storage situation and tells about high-potential technologies in emerging markets. Benchmark analysis covers several products of battery manufacturers with relevant technical and price information. Spanish electricity market showed low adaptability to distributed BESS solutions: energy arbitrage incomes have resulted being insuficient. Ancillary services, despite promising economic gures, are to a large extent prohibited to be provided by distributed storage. Electric vehicle incentives, though, resulted being of a high interest due to absence of direct investment.
