Optimal sizing method for stand-alone hybrid solar – wind system with LPSP technology by using genetic algorithm

  title={Optimal sizing method for stand-alone hybrid solar – wind system with LPSP technology by using genetic algorithm},
  author={Hongxing Yang and Wei Zhou and Lin Lu and Zhaohong Fang},
System power reliability under varying weather conditions and the corresponding system cost are the two main concerns for designing hybrid solar–wind power generation systems. This paper recommends an optimal sizing method to optimize the configurations of a hybrid solar–wind system employing battery banks. Based on a genetic algorithm (GA), which has the ability to attain the global optimum with relative computational simplicity, one optimal sizing method was developed to calculate the optimum… CONTINUE READING
