The off-grid hybrid power system has been more and more popular for the supply of electric power to some rural and remote areas The power system requires reliability sustainability and environmental friendly features though it is far from the grid Hybrid renewable model could include several components and exploits energy from different resources It might be combinations of hybrid power system design Based on the renewable sources like wind and solar and combining with the conventional diesel generator and battery storage system could not only provide the additional energy source to improve system reliability but also decrease fuel consumption to reduce energy cost and lower the greenhouse gas emission In this study solar panels diesel generators wind turbines battery bank and converters are proposed to design hybrid power system in BASCO Philippines In this study HOMER is adopted to design for the hybrid power system and simulate different scenarios for optimal system installation Wind and solar energies are considered as the main sources to supply the loading demand or to charge the battery bank as the excess electric power being generated When designing the models of this power system the simulations and optimizations are carried based on loading demand climatic data price and efficiency of the power components and other parameters for which the net present cost (NPC) has to be minimized on feasibility and availability The results have obtained that several optimal design options being adoptable to meet the micro-grid system requirements in the studied area
