RTDS modelling of battery energy storage system

This thesis describes the development of a simplified model of a battery energy storage. The battery energy storage is part of the ABB energy storage system DynaPeaQ®. The model has been built to be run in RTDS, a real time digital simulator. Batteries can be represented by equivalent electric circuits, built up of e.g voltage sources and resistances. The magnitude of the components in an equivalent circuit varies with a number of parameters, e.g. state of charge of the battery and current flow through the battery. In order to get a model of how the resistive behaviour of the batteries is influenced by various parameters, a number of simulations have been run on a Matlab/Simulink model provided by the battery manufacturer. This model is implemented as a black box with certain inputs and outputs, and simulates the battery behaviour. From the simulation results a set of equations have been derived, which approximately give the battery resistance under different operational conditions. The equations have been integrated in the RTDS model, together with a number of controls to calculate e.g. state of charge of the batteries and battery temperature. Results from the RTDS model have been compared with results from the Simulink model. The results coincide reasonably well for the conditions tested. However, further testing is needed to ensure that the RTDS model produces results similar enough to the ones from the Simulink model, over the entire operational range.
