With eyes focused on simulation we review some of the main topics of Hybrid Renewable Energy Systems (HRES). Then we describe an Agent Based model of a simple example of one of such systems, a micro-grid, oriented to designing a decentralized Supervisor Control. The model has been implemented using AnyLogic.
The vast majority of the non-electrified population are living in remote and rural areas of the developing countries where micro-grids have proved to have a very high potential to participate actively in the electrification of remote and rural areas. Such grids may be fed by electricity from different renewable and conventional decentralized sources.
There are a lot of interesting of HRES micro-grid applications like as mobile equipment, autonomous equipment, small village electricity power supply, water pumping and irrigation systems, communications power suply, mobile health emergency clinics, etc.
