Mixed-integer program for the design and dispatch of a hybrid power generation system, A
Renewable energy technologies, specifically, solar photovoltaic cells, combined with battery storage and diesel generators, form a hybrid system capable of independently powering remote locations, i.e., those isolated from the grid. If sized correctly, hybrid systems reduce fuel consumption compared to generator-only alternatives. We present an optimization model to solve the hybrid power system design and dispatch problem for remote locations, modeling the acquisition of different power technologies as integer variables and their operation using nonlinear expressions. Our cost-minimizing, ...
