Optimization of unbalance costs wind turbines by energy regulation and storage

Wind turbines sell part of their generated energy on the unbalance market. If there is a surplus of generated energy this is sold on the market, when the expected energy yield is not generated energy is bought on the market. The prices of the unbalance market vary with the supply and demand; if there is little electricity available but much needed the price rises, if there is a lot of electricity available and not much demand the price decreases.

The research question is how the energy sales can be optimized, by using energy storage (such as hydrogen) or energy regulation (such as the Superwind concept).
