Deliverable 1.4.1 introduces the Dispersed Energy Storage tool (DESPlan), and its simulations performed on the Portuguese transmission network on long-term scenarios 2030 and 2050.
DESPlan identified potential congestions and determined the optimal sizing and siting of BESS to solve them. Solutions were found at the minimum cost, as, with the BESS contribution, the congested branches were able to continued being exploited close to their rated capacity without overloading.
These studies may help describing potential congestion cases that may arise in the Portuguese transmission network if the network development is carried out as described in this report and conditions established in the OSMOSE scenarios occur.
