I am currently constructing models for optimal allocation of BEES and weighing various problem description options. I would really appreciate if you could share your experience and opinions in this area, with concrete examples if possible.
Question
1) What is the best approach for energy storage modelling and inclusion in power flow studies, taking into consideration charging and discharging cycles?
2) What is the appropriate power system test model for this in terms of load and DG output curves (daily, weekly, yearly etc.) and how should it be integrated with energy storage in a single optimisation model?
