This paper deals with the use of distributed energy storage systems in microgrids, and proposes a planning method which accounts for the uncertainties of load and distributed generation. Objectives of the planning method are the reduction of the energy costs, while providing the supply of ancillary services as a technical support to the network. The energy costs are evaluated considering a hourly varying pricing scheme and optimizing the storage systems charging/discharging stages. The technical support is devoted to the restraint of bus voltage amplitudes, and of network components' currents/powers within admissible ranges. The input data uncertainties are managed through three decision theory criteria (i.e., the minimization of expected costs; an approach based on the weighted regret felt by the design engineer; and a stability area criterion), which allow considering the multiple design alternatives and futures (i.e., possible values of uncertain input data) in an accurate and feasible way. The design alternatives refer to the size and location of the distributed storage systems, while each future is associated with a different level of load demand and power production of distributed generation over the whole planning period. The results of numerical applications are reported and discussed with reference to a Cigré test network.
