Renewable energy sources have found increased penetration into the global electric grid over the past few years. Unlike the conventional power sources, RES have an intermittent and difficult to predict nature. Due to this they are usually combined with Energy Storage systems (ESS)

Storage systems along with renewable energy sources improve the reliability and power quality of the grid. The storage elements caters to the following requirements in the grid: ensure power balance in the grid, erovide ride through capability under dynamic variations and enable seamless transition from islanded mode to normal modes in micro-grids.
The most commonly used energy storage devices are fly wheels, fuel cells, batteries and super capacitors.
In this thesis, several topics related with control and energy management in ESS are addressed.
