Abstract

This paper analyzed the potential implementation of hybrid photovoltaic (PV)/wind turbine/dieselsystem in southern city of Malaysia, Johor Bahru. HOMER (hybrid optimization model for electric renewable) simulation software was used to determine the technical feasibility of the system and to perform the economical analysis of the system. There were seven different system configurations, namely stand-alone dieselsystem, hybridPV–dieselsystem with and without battery storage element, hybridwind–dieselsystem with and without battery storage element, PV–wind–dieselsystem with and without storage element, will be studied and analyzed. The simulations will be focused on the net present costs, cost of energy, excess electricity produced and the reduction of CO2 emission for the given hybrid configurations. At the end of this paper, PV–dieselsystem with battery storage element, PV–wind–dieselsystem with battery storage element and the stand-alone dieselsystem were analyzed based on high price of diesel.
