This paper presents a hybrid system which consists of wind turbines and compressed air energy storage (CAES) facility. The inclusion of CAES into an existing wind farm helps to control power output of the entire plant. Due to wind farm location the considered CAES system was assumed to be a small scale with above ground air vessels. Mathematical, dynamic simulation of CAES model was performed. Conclusions on annual co-operation of CAES systems with wind turbines are presented.
