Investigate the optimal power system by using hybrid optimization of multiple energy resources software

Ghanim Thiab Hasan, Ali Hlal Mutlaq, Mohammad Omar Salih


Increasing the effects of global pollution and the availability of renewable energy sources has push many countries to use reasonable energy sources such as wind and solar energy. This paper presents a case study of evaluating a hybrid renewable energy system by using a hybrid optimization of multiple energy resources (HOMER) software program based on the entered data available from the net for the considered location. The hybrid system consisting of a wind turbine, a photovoltaic system, a battery and a diesel generator. The simulation results are presented in a graphical curves n HOMER software. The obtained results indicate that by using the HOMER simulation program, the optimal design of the hybrid electrical power system for the considered location can be achieved which can help the designer to decide the types and number of the competent required for conducting the intending hybrid electrical power system which results in optimum output power in addition to reducing the overall operating costs.
