The need for energy-efficient and reliable electric power in remote rural villages is a driving force for research in this area. Increasing oil prices, high transportation costs for fuels, and new environmental standards have forced many utilities to explore hybrid energy systems in an attempt to reduce fuel consumption, cost of electricity (COE), and emission levels. This work involves the development of a stand-alone hybrid power system model using MATLAB Simulink for performing the economic and environmental analysis of remote power systems. The hybrid model consists of diesel electric generators, a battery bank, a photovoltaic array, and wind turbine generators. This book is addressed to professionals in the field of hybrid electric power systems for remote locations. The material in the book is helpful to researchers, designers, and students who want to learn about remote hybrid power systems in rural villages.
