Wind power constitutes a variable energy source that introduces unbalance in electrical network management because it cannot be programmed. Then, the possibility of storing wind energy becomes very important. The lack of control is a drawback that disappears when the combination of a wind farm (WF) and a battery energy storage system (BESS) is considered. In that case, the goal is to adjust the power plant output and the load requirements of electrical network, i.e., to contribute to system

Two algorithms are proposed to solve it: the primal dual algorithm and the Mehrotra predictor-corrector one. In both cases, the best solution of the proposed problem is reached in an efficient manner. The primal dual algorithm performs better in terms of time and the Mehrotra predictor-corrector one needs fewer iterations.
