Abstract

A prototype of a hybrid renewable energy system (HRES), which includes solar energy, wind energy, and battery storage, was designed, implemented and installed in one of the laboratories of the College of Engineering at Sultan Qaboos University (SQU). The system can be upgraded to a small-scale microgrid, which may be used as a stand-alone renewable energy system for remote rural applications or may be connected to the low-voltage (LV) power network capable of importing/exporting electrical energy. In the latter application, it is suitable for residential homes. To have a better understanding of how this HRES may operate, various scenarios of operation were tested. Graphs of the microgrid performance in some of these scenarios are provided in this paper.
