Abstract

The paper aims at describing two different control strategies for a combined system composed by a Vanadium Redox Flow Battery and a wind farm. A brief overview of the dynamic models used at describing the storage system and the wind turbines is presented. The focus is then devoted to the description of the two controllers, which task is to grant the desired power output at the point of connection of the system to the main network. The two control strategies called respectively Power Control and Energy Control are analyzed and their effectiveness is tested. The wind turbines are, in fact, fed with turbulent winds and the storage is controlled to perform a series of charges and discharges in order to have the desired global output. Their implementation and the dynamic simulations are performed in the Matlab-Simulink environment.
