Energy storage is generally recommended in presence of an intermittent source like wind farm for a better control over the power generation from the wind turbine with the variation of the wind speed. In this paper, the potential of plug-in electric vehicle parking lot (SmartPark) as an energy storage in a power system with a large wind farm has been investigated. Also, a fuzzy logic based coordination controller of the wind farm and the distributed SmartParks has been proposed in this paper. The fuzzy controller uses the total state-of-charge of the SmartParks and the difference between instantaneous demand and the available wind power generation as the inputs and thereby generates the charging or discharging power commands of the SmartParks and the pitch angle reference for the wind turbine. A 12-bus multimachine power system with a 400 MW wind farm is used as a test system. Six SmartParks are also connected to the same bus where the wind farm is connected. The entire model is developed in Real-Time Digital Simulator (RTDS) for power system. The results demonstrate the action of the coordinated controller to reduce the oscillations in the tie-line power flow with the sudden variations of the wind speed.
