Abstract

The South West Interconnected System (SWIS) is an isolated network which has many long spurs supplying rural areas. Large numbers of assets are approaching their end of useful service life requiring high costs to maintain and replace network infrastructure. The loss of a single transmission line causes outages thus customers experience lower reliability of supply. A possible solution is to operate a microgrid with a battery energy storage systems (BESS) to help attenuate poor reliability during upstream fault events. This research presents an optimisation of sizing and a feasibility study for the proposed Kalbarri microgrid project, which would be the biggest of its kind in Australia.
