A microgrid is a combination of distributed energy sources to generate power to the consumer or exchange electrical energy to the grid or working in a standalone system. The microgrid may be on-grid or off-grid. Distributed Generators (DG, s) are more reliable on-site selection. Therefore, a hybrid energy system came into existence. Like to combine solar PV, wind, small Hydro, and diesel generator and fuels cells. Solar PV, wind and diesel generator hybrid system are more analyzed previously in the research study. In this research PV, Batteries and diesel Gen are combined to make a hybrid system connected to the utility grid, which is economical and reliable. The potential resource data were downloaded from NASA through the homer tool. Homer software is used for the simulation to simulate and analyze the hybrid system.
