Abstract: Hybrid energy system is an excellent solution for power generation in rural areas where the grid is infeasible. Such a system incorporates a combination of one or several energy sources such as solar PV, wind energy units, diesel generators etc. This study discusses various system components for remote area power supplies and then proceeds to an optimal operating strategy of an integrated system for a typical rural village at Kutubdia in Bangladesh. In order to determine the hourly operating states of a hybrid system more accurately, practical mathematical models characterizing PV module, wind generators are used. Battery and diesel generator are used as back up power sources. Quasi Newton algorithm is applied for optimizing the operation of wind and PV integrated energy systems. The result of the case study shows that the cost of electricity is 23 Tk/kWh for a PV/wind hybrid system.
