Following time-constraining obligations under 2015 Paris Agreement, nations are racing to integrate more renewable energy generation into their power systems than ever before. While solutions for mitigation of renewable energy negative effects to power system stability exist, they are still complex and expensive. One of the most promising technologies, battery energy systems is widely advocated, but is still unable to solve basic challenge of renewable energy integration low inertia. This paper presents a practical enabling technology in a form of synergy between a battery energy system and a synchronous machine, which is capable of supporting fully renewable power system while providing nominal power system inertia. For simplicity, the case for this technology is presented on an example of an Isolated Power System with very high renewable energy contribution.
