Abstract
This project aimed at studying the automatic control of more than one renewable energy sources, combined in order to meet the energy needs of an average household in a rural area that the connection to grid is difficult or impossible. On the following pages, a significant part of the renewable energy sources, which are widespread and suitable for the afore-mentioned purpose, are presented, along with innovative alternative energy systems that can replace or supplement existing technologies in areas with different criteria than usual (sunshine, wind supply, etc.). Although this topic is conventionally perceived as a problem of electrical engineering, the combination of different energy sources can be successfully achieved through electronics engineering applications and microprocessor-based programming for the automated control of such a demanding energy system.
Keywords
