Abstract

In this thesis, a detailed analysis of a wind-fuel cell hybrid energy system for stand-alone applications is carried out. Initially, a pre-feasibility study for such a system is conducted and for a given load, the sizes of various components are determined. Dynamic models of these components are developed based on empirical and physical relationships. The hybrid system is then integrated and simulated for investigating the transient behaviors during sudden load variation, wind speed change and hydrogen pressure drop. Optimization software tool HOMER is used for the pre-feasibility study and MATLAB-SimulinkĀ® is employed for dynamic system modeling. Finally, results of this analysis are summarized and scope for future works are indicated.
