Abstract: The integration of wind power and solar power with the utility network creates some technical problems. The wind power is a function of wind velocity. The variation of wind velocity causes the rotor speed, terminal voltage, generator frequency and output power to vary. The Integrated Renewable Energy and Energy Storage (IREES) system described in this paper can help to minimize these variations. The small size of this system can be used as a stand-alone system to supply remote areas. The larger size of this system can provide the national network with electricity at constant power, voltage and frequency. The author is investigating the feasibility of a fully renewable electricity based power supply system (small scale). It's so unrealistic that it will not happen in the next hundred years. The system under investigation has a renewable energy source with a backup unit preferably a battery storage device. The objectives of this contribution are to introduce the IREES to the performance of the system, discuss the applied mathematical model, the applied computational technique and present the obtained results.
