In this research, dynamic modeling of a remote hybrid power system and feasibility of a pumped hydro storage system is presented. Current hybrid system in Ramea, Newfoundland has an electrolyzer, storage and hydrogen generator system. This research proposes a pumped hydro storage as a replacement to the hydrogen system. Detailed MATLAB-Simulink modeling has been done for every component of the Ramea hybrid power system. Incorporation of a pumped hydro system and some lead acid batteries will eliminate the low turn around efficiency of the electrolyzer and hydrogen generator system. The system dynamic model presented here is fast, accurate and includes dynamic and supervisory controllers. The proposed real time supervisory controller algorithm observes the available surplus/missing power in the system and regulates pump/turbine and charging/discharging of the battery bank to maintain a stable system frequency. This paper presents dynamic model, supervisory controller design and algorithm, six case studies and detailed simulation results.
