The study concerning about the grid connection of the large-capacity energy storage system(ESS) is increasing. However, the transient study such as lightning or switching surge necessarily occurred at power system with ESS has been hardly performed. Therefore, this paper performs the analysis of lightning surge in distribution system with ESS using electromagnetic transient program(EMTP). The battery model in Matlab/Simulink is modeled by EMTP, which is the specialized software for power system transient study. Also, the bi-directional power electronics for interconnection of the battery and distribution system are modeled by EMTP. When the lightning is occurred at interconnection point of ESS, this paper simulates the existence of ESS and operation conditions of ESS and analyzes the surge in distribution system and ESS according to the various conditions.
