Dynamic Containment

In its attempts of regulating frequency response ancillary services, National Grid has recently launched the Dynamic Containment frequency response service. Like its predecessor, the Firm Frequency Response (FFR) scheme, Dynamic containment is geared towards managing the provider network of means for frequency balancing, such as battery energy storage systems (BESS), which are normally found on photovoltaic (PV) farms and other PV installations.

The dynamic containment guidelines include the technical specifications for fast response to frequency fluctuations and the required metering scheme and report, which must be sent to National Grid’s data concentrator.
