Abstract—This paper introduces a comprehensive Energy Management Strategy (EMS) control for a Remote Area Power Supply (RAPS) system, that includes a wind generation subsystem, a battery bank, and a variable local load. The primary objectives of the EMS control are to meet the load power demand, adapt to wind fluctuations, and extend the battery bank’s lifespan. To achieve these objectives, the EMS controller determines the operation modes of the wind generation and battery bank. The study includes a detailed design of a Sliding Mode Controller (SMC) for the boost converter associated with wind power generation. This study offers valuable insights into controlling standalone wind-dominated systems in remote areas, offering solutions to enhance stability by reducing voltage ripple and improving performance through optimizing settling time. Simulations confirm the effectiveness of the proposed technique in managing load and wind variations, outperforming conventional PI controllers.
