This thesis proposes a standalone hybrid generation system by combining solar and wind energy with provision of a battery storage bank and diesel generator for back up usage. This thesis has discussed the optimization, sizing, and operational strategy of hybrid renewable energy system, which results in a minimum cost. Detailed AutoCAD drawings used in Energy3D and BEopt modeling which has been done for every component of the hybrid power system. The system dynamic model and simulations presented here was done in Matlab/Simulink, which is fast accurate software that includes dynamic and supervisory controllers. The proposed controller algorithm observes the available surplus/missing power in the system and regulates PV/Wind-Turbine and charging/discharging of the battery bank to maintain a stable system frequency. The simulation results obtained from Matlab/Simulink show that the overall hybrid framework is capable of working under the variable weather and load conditions.
