A novel Remote Area Power Supply (RAPS) system consisting of a Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) wind turbine generator, synchronous diesel generator system, battery storage system and a dump load is considered in this paper. A control coordination strategy is formulated with a view to regulate the system voltage and frequency within acceptable limits while extracting the maximum power available from the wind. The battery storage unit is used to provide a smooth state transition from Wind-Only (WO) to Wind-Diesel (WD) mode while enabling the DFIG to operate in its maximum power point tracking mode of operation. The dump load is used to absorb the excess energy which cannot be utilised through the battery storage system. The entire RAPS system has been modelled using SimPowerSystem toolbox in MATLAB.
