Hybrid Energy System for a Rural Area
Keywords:Site Selection; Simulation; Result
Nowadays, renewable energy has received significant research attention to reducing greenhouse effects as well
as the cost of utilization of electrical power. A hybrid power station, i.e., a combination of renewable and
convention power station could be a good substitute of a conventional plant to reduce global warming effects. In
anywhere a remote situated area or boondocks may be recherché as a case study in a procedure to inquire the
accomplishment to apply a hybrid power system and allow to the rural areas. The proposed Hybrid energy
system is simulated in HOMER software. In HOMER software simulation has accomplishment and details of
concern study are also described in this paper.
