Uptake of Low Carbon Technologies is likely to lead to increased demand in distribution networks and consequently could impose additional stress on the networks. Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) are identified as a feasible alternative to traditional network reinforcement. This paper analyses two BESS scheduling algorithms (Model Predictive Control (MPC) and fixed schedule) supplied with forecasts from five methods for predicting demand on 100 low voltage feeders. Results show that forecasting feeders with higher mean daily demand produces lower mean absolute errors and better peak demand reduction. MPC with simple error improves peak reduction over fixed schedule for feeders with lower mean daily demand.
