This paper presents and discusses results from a computer simulation of a battery energy storage/converter system connected to a representative utility substation. Switching of load, voltage waveforms, voltage levels, fault conditions, and power flow reversal are investigated for both line- and forced-cornmutated converters in the application. The interactions among the battery, the converter and its controls, and the substation are discussed. The investigations have pointed out areas in which further consideration must be given to component selection for the battery/utility interface equipment, for example, dc reactor sizing, harmonic filtering, power factor control, thyristor firing control, and dc current interruption.
