Hybrid configurations involving renewable energies and storage devices pose certain challenges regarding their energy management strategies, such as the intermittent and fluctuating power generation from renewable sources, the time-varying available energy in the storage systems, or their maximum charge and discharge limitations. Observing these aspects is mandatory in order to develop a smart energy management strategy within the hybrid system. This chapter presents a control strategy for the coordinated operation of a wind power generator and two different energy storage devices. The proposed control scheme is based on fuzzy logic to monitor the state of charge of the storage systems, while defining their power references to comply with an imposed grid demand. The control strategy has been evaluated through simulation under different operating conditions, proving a satisfactory regulation of the monitored parameters and an adequate supply of the grid requirements.
