Due to the increased penetration of renewable energy sources in the Electricity Distribution Systems, the idea of connecting a storage system to the distribution systems to provide stable electrical energy is becoming widespread. At this point, Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) have emerged as an important option. In this study, Mobile Battery Energy Storage System (MBESS), which have features such as providing island operation of the distribution system, responding to faults in a short time, and can be moved to desired areas and temporarily function as a buffer, have been introduced, and their effect on the distribution system has been investigated. Various scenarios with different battery locations and different short circuit types are produced in the study, using the IEEE 13-bus test system. Simulation studies were carried out on the test system for different scenario types, and the effect of the MBESSs operating mode was examined.
