Battery energy storage systems (BESSs) are incorporated into wind farms to gain more profits by shifting energy over time and to track predetermined power schedules. In operations, charging/discharging power of the BESS is adjusted flexibly to follow the power schedules of the wind-BESS hybrid systems (W-BESS-HS), which are set to be the sum of short-term predicted wind powers and charging/discharging schedules of the BESS. In order to extend lifetime of batteries, the BESS operation is subject to a sequential charging/discharging state sequence, which is predetermined according to time-of-use (ToU) pricing schemes. An iteration scheme is presented to update scheduled charging/discharging rates of the BESS according to simulation results based on sequential Monte-Carlo simulation (SMCS) technology so that the W-BESS-HS can not only meet a probabilistic requirement on generation schedule tracking but also gain further economic benefits by achieving a trade-off between punishments resulted from power deviations and wind power curtailment losses. In the SMCS simulation, a series of real-time indices are presented to evaluate performances of the W-BESS-HS at every dispatching interval and provide updating directions of the iteration scheme. The research work can provide theoretical support when operating the W-BESS-HS in ToU pricing schemes.
