Abstract

This paper presents a variety of dispatch strategies for
hybrid renewable systems including wind turbine, PV panel, fuel
cell, and diesel generator and battery bank. These strategies are
distinguished based on the priority of the usage of battery bank,
fuel cell and diesel generator in case of power deficit and the
precedence of charging of battery bank and filling the hydrogen
tank. For a given system, resource and load profile, the
performance of the system corresponding to each dispatch
strategy is evaluated against both cost related and reliability
related measures. It is found that the performance of the system
is highly under the influence of the dispatch strategy
incorporated in the system. Therefore, in sizing hybrid
renewable energy systems, dispatch strategy should be also
considered as a decision variable that needs to be found along
with the optimum size of other components of the system.
