Wind power has features of uncertainty. When wind power producers (WPPs) bid in the day-ahead electricity market, how to deal with the deviation between forecasting output and actual output is one of the important topics in the design of electricity market with WPPs. This paper makes use of a non-probabilistic approach—Information gap decision theory (IGDT)—to model the uncertainty of wind power, and builds a robust optimization scheduling model for wind–storage–electric vehicles(EVs) hybrid system with EV participations, which can make the scheduling plan meet the requirements within the range of wind power fluctuations. The proposed IGDT robust optimization model first transforms the deterministic hybrid system optimization scheduling model into a robust optimization model that can achieve the minimum recovery requirement within the range of wind power output fluctuation, and comprehensively considers each constraint. The results show that the wind–storage–EVs hybrid system has greater operational profits and less impact on the safe and stable operation of power grids when considering the uncertainty of wind power. In addition, the proposed method can provide corresponding robust wind power fluctuation under different expected profits of the decision-maker to the wind–storage–EVs hybrid system.
