The wind is an uncontrollable primary resource, although its energy can be stored. This fact can be used for the design of strategies for a better management of electric power networks. An option for achieving this goal is to install Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) in the wind farms (WF). When dealing with WFs combined with BESSs the most important is to manage the power production in order to meet the requirements of the network or those related with the owner of the plant. Both challenges constitute an optimization problem. This paper proposes an Evolutionary Algorithm (EA) to solve it, where a fitness function must be maximized under the consideration of certain constraints. The fitness function depends on the target of the power production, which may be either to help the network become more stable or to maximize the profit, assessing each scenario and accepting the best one. The constraints of the optimization problem are related to the levels of the BESSs: the maximum power transferred to or from it and the output power of the plant.
