Modeling and Simulation of Advanced Pumped-Storage Hydropower Technologies and their Contributions to the Power System

Published 25 April 2016 | By Energy Exemplar

With the larger penetration of variable renewable energy resources, the role of energy storage in the power system is becoming increasingly important. The flexibility of operation of hydro and pumped-storage power plants and the variety of ancillary services that they provide to the grid enable better utilization of variable renewable resources and more efficient and reliable operation of the entire power system. The US Department of Energy’s Water Power Program has funded a recent study to enhance the modeling and simulation of advanced pumped-storage hydropower (PSH) technologies and examine the value of different services and contributions that they can provide to the power system.
