This report contains the design of a model for the integration of a battery energy system in a household level and its use for primary frequency regulation and self-consumption optimization. The main goal of this project was to investigate what are the possible applications and the most suitable for the use of the battery in a domestic environment, choose the most suitable/profitable ones and develop a model to investigate the feasibility and possible benefits of it. The first part of the report includes an introduction in the company activities, its goals and the importance of energy storage. The problem analysis indicates the problem that must be handled and the possible applications for the storage system in the following part, to be followed by the chosen applications and the requirement elicitation process for the system-to-be-designed. The fourth part of the report contains the system design and the architecture with respect to the application. The results of modelling and simulating the designed approach are presented and commented in the fifth part. The sixth part of the report describes the model evaluation, while the project management process that was followed is presented in the seventh chapter. The report ends with conclusions from the project and recommendations for future continuation.
