Abstract


  • In this paper, an optimisation model for dtermination of the optimal sizes of various system

    components, including wind, diesel and energy storage, has een developed to obtain a reliable and cost-effective winddiesel hbrid remote area power supply (RAPS) system. A lnear programming based cost minimisation algorithm has been formulated for determination of optimal sizes of various

    components in a RAPS system with consideration of continually varying wind and system load. The system constraints, including power balance for both under-generation and overgeneration

    scenarios, have been considered in the optimisation formulation. Optimisation model to minimize the total cost of the system based on hourly net present cost for both a one-day period and one-week period have been developed with allowance for unserved load during low wind conditions.
