This paper proposes a wind turbine and battery storage based packet energy system. The proposed energy packet network can be used to make renewable energy sources more practical and supply energy on demand. The flow of energy in the energy packet network is controlled by a Smart Energy Dispatching Centres (SEDC). SEDCs receive the energy requests from the customers and it tries to optimize the energy flows by making the best use of renewable energy resources, existing price and policies. The proposed energy system can take energy flow instructions from a SEDC. In the present analysis a small wind energy system with battery storage has been simulated in Matlab/Simulink. The system has been modelled using low order transfer functions. Random switching has been done to get energy packets from the model. A prototype of the battery based energy storage system has been designed and implemented. Lab tests and simulation results indicates that the designed packet energy network system is able to provide energy packet as required by the grid. Additionally the output power from a very large energy packet network is also found to be stable with the existence of large load fluctuation.
