Optimization of Solar and Wind Hybrid System

Shashi Shanker | BSSPM Sharma


Abstract: With the advent of new technologies demand for energy is increased rapidly which makes us to seek the more importance towards renewable sources of energy. The very important of which are solar and wind energy as they are abundant, freely available, environment friendly and they are considered as the fuel of tomorrow. Solar and Wind energies are available at most of the remote areas which increases its usability. However, it is notable neither Solar nor Wind energy can provide continuous supply of energy when stand-alone due to seasonal and periodical variations. Therefore we use Hybrid Power System. Hybrid system is used widely to fulfill energy needs in remote areas which are far from the mainstream and out of grid network. The paper presents the simulation of Hybrid Solar and Wind system in MATLAB and cost optimization. We compare stand-alone Solar, stand-alone Wind and their Hybrid in term of their coat. For purpose of optimization purpose we choose Jodhpur (Raj. ), India and studied three different plant size i. e.1kWh/day, 10lWh/day and 100kWh/day and compare the cost of Solar, Wind and Hybrid power system and proved that Hybrid is more feasible then both standing alone
