Utilization of Renewable Energy (RE) sources is growing in grid-connected mode as well as in remote isolated communities. Remote communities need to use RE to reduce their diesel consumption. Hybrid power systems with some long-term energy storage can optimally use RE resource. One example of a remote wind-diesel-hydrogen hybrid power system is in Ramea, Newfoundland. That system is still not operational and its control system is being designed. This paper presents dynamic modeling and simulation of Ramea hybrid power system. Mathematical models of diesel generators, wind turbines, electrolyzer, hydrogen generator and storage are included in the paper. Matlab/Simulink™ and SimPower block set have been used to simulate the system. Simulation results are included in the paper. Presented modeling and simulation results will be used to design a control system for Ramea hybrid power system.
