Operation of Renewable Energy and Energy Storage-Based Hybrid Remote Area Power Supply Systems: Challenges and State-of-the-Arts

Publication Name

Advances in Control Techniques for Smart Grid Applications


Remote Area Power Supply (RAPS) systems can play an effective role in supplying electric power to rural and remote communities. RAPS systems are traditionally powered by non-renewable sources. The growing environmental awareness and improved technology have led to the increased penetration of renewable sources into the grid. However, the intermittent nature of renewable sources reduces the overall reliability of the RAPS system. This chapter aims to present a comprehensive review of the renewable energy-based RAPS system, its dynamic performance, and different approaches to deal with the system instabilities. An overview of the RAPS systems and associated challenges has also been presented.
