A Review of Hybrid Renewable/Alternative Energy Systems for Electric Power Generation: Configurations, Control and Applications
23 June 2016 • 12:00 pm Eastern
Presented by Dr. Hashem Nehrir, Montana State University
This presentation is on the paper, prepared by a special task force of the IEEE PES Renewable Technologies Subcommittee of the Energy Development & Power Generation Committee, is a review of hybrid renewable/alternative energy (RE/AE) power generation systems focusing on energy sustainability. It highlights some important issues and challenges in the design and energy management of hybrid RE/AE systems. System configurations, generation unit sizing, storage needs, and energy management and control are addressed. Statistics on the current status and future trend of renewable power generation, as well as some critical challenges facing the widespread deployment of RE/AE power generation technologies and vision for future research in this area are also presented. The comprehensive list of references given at the end of the paper should be helpful to researchers working in this area.
Dr. Hashem Nehrir is a Professor in the Electrical & Computer Engineering Department at Montana State University-Bozeman. His current research is focused on intelligent control and multiagent system applications to power/energy management of hybrid renewable energy systems and microgrids. He is the Vice Chair of the Renewable Technologies Subcommittee of IEEE-PES, Life Fellow of IEEE, and selected to receive the 2016 IEEE-PES Ramakumar Family Renewable Energy Excellence Award.
