Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) can nowadays be used for many applications on the electric distribution grids. They can lead to significant technical and economic benefits such as continuity of service, improvement of power quality levels, smart load management and power flow control between different interconnected electric networks. Their applications can be implemented thanks to efficient algorithms aimed to evaluate many different operating sceneries under several technical constraints. In this paper, a methodology for optimizing the power flow between different levels of electric distribution grids through the use of BESS is proposed. The problem is solved by convex optimization approach and optimal control algorithms.
