The superconducting magnetic energy storage system (SMES) has been studied on its advantages over another type of energy storage system. Considering the advantages of SMES, it is recognized that SMES is one of the advanced energy storage systems for future power plants. In this paper, a SMES system equipped for an independent power producer (IPP) power plant is proposed and the operational scenario of the total plant is discussed. Also, some types of SMES coil for this study are designed in size or other parameters and the quantitative comparison among them is mentioned.
