This study aims to show methods of determining the installation site and the optimal capacity of a battery energy storage system (BESS) to attain load leveling. The methods are based on the hardware characteristics of 20 kW/100 kWh and 1 MW/4 MWh prototype BESSs, which are already developed and are being developed, respectively. The candidate site of BESS installation is the secondary side of a distribution substation's main transformer (MTR). These tasks are performed by first classifying the load pattern of an MTR and comparing it to the load pattern of a total power system. If the load factor improves, then the location is determined to be a BESS installation site. Subsequently, the optimal BESS capacity for an MTR is determined using the given operation pattern, the charging/discharging characteristics and efficiency. Computational experimentation was performed on an actual distribution system in Korea. After determining the optimal capacity, the authors verified that installing the BESS on the selected MTR improved both daily and nightly load factors
