The Trends of Integrating Renewable Energy Sources: A Survey
Renewable energy sources (RESs) are considered as future replacement of traditional energy generation sources with zero carbon emission and low price electricity producers. RESs are intermittent, uncertain and random in nature, they do not produce fixed amount of energy and heavily depend upon weather, season and area. In this paper, new trends in the integration of photovoltaic and wind turbine are presented. This paper discusses the integration of RESs at three level i.e. consumer level, micro grid level and main grid level. A comprehensive review of the intermittent and stochastic nature of RESs is also provided. Additionally, fault protection concerns and the feasibility of RESs are discussed. Moreover, the usage of storage system to deal with the fluctuating behavior of RESs is presented.
