Optimal design of hybrid energy system with PV/wind turbine/storage: A case study


Hybrid energy systems with renewable generation are built in many remote areas where the renewable resources are abundant and the environment is clean. We present a case study of the Catalina Island in California for which a system with photovoltaic (PV) arrays, wind turbines, and battery storage is designed based on empirical weather and load data. To determine the system size, we formulate an optimization problem that minimizes the total construction and operation cost subject to maximum tolerable risk. Simulations using the Hybrid Optimization Model for Electric Renewable (HOMER) is used to determine the feasible set of the optimization problem.
