© 2016 IEEE. This paper aims to find the optimal place and size of an energy storage system in a microgrid, considering the grid-connected mode and autonomous mode simultaneously. Energy storage systems are one of the most effective components in today's power grids to improve the power quality of power grids, therefore attracting more attention in this field. Specially, in microgirds which use various kinds of distributed generations, using energy storage systems is necessary to improve their power quality. Finding the optimal place and size of energy storage systems is a common action in microgrids. However, it should be noted that most microgrids can be operated in both of their operation modes and finding optimal place and size of an energy storage system for one of these operation modes doesn't mean that they are optimal for the other mode. This paper presents a new method to find the optimal place and size of an energy storage system for microgrids during daily operation, considering both grid-connected mode and autonomous mode simultaneously. The presented method is based on applying the AC-optimal power flow to find the optimal place and size of the energy storage system.
