Energy Storage Systems: A Flexible Grid Asset


Energy storage systems are increasingly used in grids over the world. This growth is enabled by many facets that are continuously evolving: regulatory frameworks, standards, system controls, battery performance, consumer education and costs. At Evlo, we have contributed to facilitating adoption of energy storage systems for the past seven years. We have deployed systems in small and large grids, including in extreme weather locations, using our proprietary real-time controller partly developed with Simulink. In this presentation we will go over some key realizations to demonstrate how energy storage systems can contribute (1) to improve grid operations and (2) to facilitate increased usage of renewables.

About the Presenter

Adile Ajaja
Software Team Lead, Evlo Energy
Hydro Quebec Energy Storage, Canada

Adile Ajaja is currently the technical lead for software development at Evlo. He initially joined Hydro-Québec in 2007 to design and deploy a VVC system. He later worked on grid dynamic reconfiguration, before joining in 2014 the then newly created joint venture Esstalion Energy Storage. He developed their original controller, and later put together the team that writes the software at Evlo. Adile holds a master’s degree in electrical engineering (power systems) from McGill University and a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering (power systems) from Concordia University.
