Integration of battery energy storage system (BESS) has been remarkably increasing in microgrids as a consequence of the high penetration level of renewable energy resources. A major challenge with BESS application is capacity degradation. The degradation of BESS is a complex mechanism that mainly affects the lifetime of the battery. Despite the importance of the topic, there is a lack of comprehensive models of degradation and hence the service lifetime in the literature. This paper presents a comprehensive and timely review on battery lifetime models in planning studies of microgrids. The existing models are deeply discussed, and the technical challenges are introduced.

|The theme of this year’s conference is Clean and Reliable Electric Energy Systems. With the prevalent problem of climate change, clean energy technologies are gaining much attention in the power industries currently. At the same time, due to intermittent nature of renewable sources, power system reliability and security are also being given serious considerations. It is, therefore, imperative that this premier power engineering conference in this region gives proper acknowledgement to the need of the future power delivery system.
