Abstract
Hybrid wind-diesel power systems have a great potential in providing energy supply to remote communities. Compared with the traditional diesel systems, hybrid power plants can offer many advantages such as additional capacity, being more environmentally friendly, and potential reduction of cost. The O&M of a hybrid power project requires comprehensive knowledge from both technical and managerial points of view. This study focuses on one of the largest existing hybrid wind-diesel power system, the San Cristobal Wind Project. Performance analysis and computer simulation are conducted to illustrate the most representative operational issues. We demonstrate that the wind uncertainty, control strategies, energy storage, and the wind turbine power curve have a significant impact on the performance of the system. Keywords Hybrid wind-diesel power plant ? Operations and maintenance ? Feasibility study ? Wind power and project management
