In loadshape mode, both charging and discharging of the fleet follows a dispatch curve defined in a loadshape object, as follows.


New LoadShape.SCloadshape interval=1 npts=24 mult=[0,0,-0.3,-0.45,-0.5,-0.45,-0.3,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0.3,0.5,0.8,0.9,0.8,0.5,0.3,0,0]

New StorageController.SC element=Line.ln5815900-1 terminal=1 modedis=loadshape

~ daily=SCloadshape %rateCharge=50 %reserve=20 eventlog=yes


Note that it is not needed to set ModeCharge to Loadshape. This happens automatically when the discharge mode is set to Loadshape. Figure 22 shows the dispatch curve and the power measured at the beginning of the feeder with and without the controller.
