Design Optimation of Wind Power Generation with Compressed Air Energy Storage System
Integration of compressed air energy storage (CAES) system with wind power generation is critical for the intermittent nature of power demands. CAES is used by compressing air into a container when storing and expanding when producing. In this paper, a design of compressed-air energy storage system is considered and determined the size of the storage tank according to the required load demand and the wind power output. The calculation was carried out for daily energy demand and energy supply. It is also observed that for a compression ratio, increasing the tank size will increase the energy supply. At every power demand, the tank size and compression ratio are optimized by finding the average sufficiency percentage.
