Optimal sizing of hybrid renewable energy system

What is it about?

This article illustrates the size optimization of solar-wind-diesel generator-battery hybrid system designed for a remote location mobile telecom base transceiver station in Nigeria.

Why is it important?

Hybrid energy systems are becoming attractive for providing electricity in remote areas due to excessive expenditure of grid extension, increase in oil price and advances in renewable energy technology. Therefore , this work shows that optimal sizing of components can reduce the cost of hybrid systems in such rural locations.
