Battery Energy Storage Systems
Behind The Meter
In Front of The Meter
This paper shows the results of the studies carried out to determine which system, batteries installed behind the meter (BTM) or batteries installed in front of the meter (FTM), shows the best performance in terms of minimal power losses and energy storage capacity that would have the Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) to be installed. The analysis has been carried out over real networks in the region of Murcia (Spain) with different topologies and a variable number and location of customers along the grid. In addition, real consumption profiles of random customers, as well as real measurements of the transformer loading curves recorded at the Secondary Substation (SS), have been considered in the analysis. In this way, it can be ensured that the results represent real situations that can be found nowadays.
