Abstract

Although transmission systems are able to cover most of the areas in many countries, there are still some isolated areas such as rural counties and remote desert lands where grid power cannot be accessed. Therefore, a reliable and economical power supply scheme is required to solve the problem. One of them combines wind/solar power generation with the support of storage system. This paper is to give an overview of the optimization methodologies about the wind/solar stand-alone system supported by storage systems or integrating with other renewable or conventional power generation sources. It is shown that continued research and optimization methodology in this area are still in great need for performance improvement.
