Small-signal stability analyzed results of an autonomous hybrid renewable energy power generation/energy storage system connected to isolated loads using time-domain simulations is presented in this paper. The companion paper presents frequency-domain analyzed results of the same hybrid system. The proposed renewable energy power generation subsystems include three wind turbine generators (WTGs), a diesel engine generator, two fuel cells (FCs), and a photovoltaic system (PV) while the energy storage subsystems consist of a battery energy storage system and a flywheel energy storage system. An aqua electrolyzer absorbs a part of generated energy from PV or WTGs to generate available hydrogen for FCs. A time-domain approach based on three mathematical models for three studied cases under various operating points and disturbance conditions is performed. It can be concluded from the simulation results that the proposed hybrid power generation/energy storage system feeding isolated loads can be properly operated to achieve system power-frequency balance condition.
