Review of HRESs based on storage options, system architecture and optimisation criteria and methodologies

30 Nov 2018

The fast-growing awareness of depleting fossil fuel and the adverse impact of conventional energy generation methods on the environment has brought passionate attention to renewable energy sources (RE source). Owing to stochastic nature of energy production from renewable energy system (RES), two or more sources are combined to form hybrid RE system (HRES). Optimisation of size, cost and reliability of power production of HRES are important factors in the planning of HRES. This study presents a review of optimisation tools and constraints on which HRES system is optimised. The types of storage/backup system available for HRES are also presented in this study.
