Hybrid2 - The Hybrid Power System Simulation Model

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


    There is a large-scale need and desire for energy in remote communities, especially in the developing world; however the lack of a user friendly, flexible performance prediction model for hybrid power systems incorporating renewables hindered the analysis of hybrids as options to conventional solutions. A user friendly model was needed with the versatility to simulate the many system locations,widely varying hardware configurations, and differing control options for potential hybrid power systems. To meet these ends, researchers from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the University of Massachusetts (UMass) developed the Hybrid2 software. This report provides an overview of the capabilities, features, and functionality of the Hybrid2 code, discusses its validation andfuture plans. Model availability and technical support provided to Hybrid2 users are also discussed.
