Modeling and Simulation of a Sustainable Hybrid Energy System under Changing Power Reliability Index at User End

ByAnurag Chauhan

If the present policy on the use of coal, oil, and gas persist, then by the year 2020, the global temperature is expected to be increased by 2°C. The rise in temperature will result in flooding in lowland areas, increase in the process of desertification, and change in climate all over the world. Therefore, it is required to find the suitable sustainable alternative of fossil fuels. Renewable energy sources require no fossil fuels for power generation and, hence, produce the least negative impact on environment. These sources can be utilized in both utility grid mode and off-grid mode [1–10].
