Unpredictable wind nature highly affects wind power plants operation and their capability for an electrical energy production. The Krnovo wind power plant, as a new renewable energy source in Montenegrin power system, is faced with this issue. The utilization of an electrical energy storage system (EES) is proposed in this paper as a way for the problem overcoming. Through performed simulation in MATLAB Simulink software, it was concluded that connection of lithium-ion battery to the wind plant will significantly improve its efficiency. The results of simulations proves the capability of the lithium-ion battery system to maintain the value of Krnovo output power stable, making this facility a more constant power source.
