Analysis of Standalone Hybrid Power Systems with reference to the Reactive Power Management


Standalone hybrid systems are need of the hour in electrical power sector. The reactive power support is most vital issue in the voltage point of view.Wind energy has received the special attention of researchers in recent times. Attempts to generate electricity from wind energy have been made since the end of nineteenth century. A single renewable energy source may not be able to meet the load demands apart from the fact that continuous supply of energy may not be ensured. Here comes the importance of Hybrid energy systems such as Wind-diesel, Wind-PV.Advanced FACTS technologies have utilized for reactive power support to the system. The fuzzy logic has implemented in the control circuit of STATCOMwhich is relatively advantageous compared to conventional PI controller.The control strategy is verified through model simulation study whose results conform the significance of the control methodology incorporated in the paper.
Keywords: Permanent Magnet Induction Generator (PMIG), Static Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM), Synchronous Generator (SG), Wind–diesel Hybrid System
