We mainly focus on to creating a different mode of operation in an energy storage system for an effective way of wind energy utilization. The proposed energy storage system consists of Bidirectional DC–DC Converter (BDC), which makes the system effective in order to overcome the issues in practical usage. The modes of operations are based on three essential parameters such as wind-turbine speed (v), battery level (%) and load position (s). Based on the parameters’ magnitude, the main controller will choose an effective mode. The main controller is designed in such a manner that it must be capable of withstanding drastic conditions, must be robust, should monitor all parameters, and could maintain the stability of the system. The work is evaluated through MATLAB/Simulink environment. Finally, the real time prototype experimental results are compared with that of the simulation. In addition, the proposed system is applicable for commercial and domestic power-storage systems.
