Renewable generation in power systems has proved to be challenging for system operators owing to the increasing levels of penetration. The operation of power systems currently requires additional flexibility and reserves due to the intermittency and unpredictability of renewable generators. However, it is difficult to precisely predict and control the stochastic nature of renewable sources; nevertheless, its capacity continues to increase. To monitor and control renewable generators efficiently, the entire system needs to be established in a hierarchical order. This study proposed the concept of a substation that is uniquely designed for renewable interconnection. The purpose of this substation is simple: to make the renewable generators dispatchable to operators such that each group of renewable generators is sufficiently stable to be considered as conventional generators. For this purpose, methods for sizing and controlling energy storage system are proposed based on forecasts and error distributions.
