A Study on Photovoltaic/Wind/Diesel Hybrid Power System

  • Published : 2003.01.01


In this paper, a hybrid power system with photovoltaic/wind/diesel generators is proposed to solve the defect of stand-alone type power system in a remote area. A hybrid power system has a power-balanced controller to equilibrate generation power with a given load demand and which is composed of common DC power system. To execute a power-balanced control, a hybrid power system is assumed that all of power generators have the characteristics of an equivalent current-source and load sharing control technique must be needed at the same time. So this paper discusses the structure of power-balance control for hybrid power system. And through the results of simulation, the proposed scheme was verified.
