The quick reduction of fossil fuel resources and natural concerns has given attentiveness on generation of renewable energy resources. Among the various renewable resources, hybrid solar and wind energy seems to be hopeful solutions to provide reliable power supply with improved system effectiveness and reduced storage requirements. The decentralized hybrid system based on renewable energy system with back up generation improves system reliability. The paper proposes optimum planning of Hybrid Renewable Electric System for daily load demand of two different locations with HOMER. The HOMER (Hybrid Optimization Model for Electric Renewable), developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) which is the renewable energy based optimization tool for stand-alone hybrid electric renewable energy system. The model can analyze all the available power technologies individually and in hybrid configurations to identify least-cost solutions to energy requirements. The hybrid of solar, wind, generator and battery as back-up is the basis of estimation. The hybrid system also reduces the Co2 emission from the fuel based generation system. The system configuration of the hybrid is derived based on a household load at two different locations in India, to find the optimum combination and sizing of components.

Abstract


The quick reduction of fossil fuel resources and natural concerns has given attentiveness on generation of renewable energy resources. Among the various renewable resources, hybrid solar and wind energy seems to be hopeful solutions to provide reliable power supply with improved system effectiveness and reduced storage requirements. The decentralized hybrid system based on renewable energy system with back up generation improves system reliability. The paper proposes optimum planning of Hybrid Renewable Electric System for daily load demand of two different locations with HOMER. The HOMER (Hybrid Optimization Model for Electric Renewable), developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) which is the renewable energy based optimization tool for stand-alone hybrid electric renewable energy system. The model can analyze all the available power technologies individually and in hybrid configurations to identify least-cost solutions to energy requirements. The hybrid of solar, wind, generator and battery as back-up is the basis of estimation. The hybrid system also reduces the Co2 emission from the fuel based generation system. The system configuration of the hybrid is derived based on a household load at two different locations in India, to find the optimum combination and sizing of components.
