A New Bifunctional Energy Storage Solution for Conventional and Renewable Energy Power Plants

Ahmad Arabkoohsar and Gorm B. Andresen
Abstract—In this work, a novel, simple and efficient power storage system that provides both heat and electricity in high efficiency is designed and proposed. The system works based on a gas turbine cycle in which the input energy is supplied by a thermal energy storage system instead of a combustion chamber. The other key point is that heat production is as important as power generation in this system. In order to prove the proficiency of the system, it is comprehensively analyzed thermodynamically in Denmark, regarding its power and heat market regulations and historical data as the case study of this work. The results show that an overall energy efficiency of almost 85% and the electricity efficiency of 35% can be expected for the system and it is demonstrated that the system is highly feasible economically even taking conservative electricity and heat prices into account.

Index Terms—Energy storage, smart energy, thermal storage, wind power stabilization, energy market.
