Part of the Green Energy and Technology book series (GREEN)


In this chapter, an overview of the storage device is presented. Energy storage is a dominant factor. It can reduce power fluctuations, enhance system flexibility, and enable the storage and dispatch of electricity generated by variable renewable energy sources such as wind and solar. Different storage technologies are used with wind energy systems or with hybrid wind systems. The study describes the different storage used in wind and photovoltaic systems. The most used batteries are summarized in different tables to show their proprieties; also, different mathematical models are listed. Readers are encouraged to use these models to test each example. At the end of the chapter, hybrid storage is introduced. It is always difficult to recommend the use, for example, of batteries or supercapacitors, as the two technologies have very different characteristics. So, one solution is to Different Matlab Batteries/super capacities, Batteries/fuel cells,… used in electric vehicle are presented ends with different MATLAB/Simulink applications.
