Diverse system architecture
Hybrid2 allows the user to create power systems with diverse architectures.
AC and DC system buses are used to separate the power system components. The
power systems can include wind turbines, photovoltaic, diesel generators, batteries,
dump loads and four types of power conversion equipment. Hybrid2 also allows
for the inclusion of a coupled diesel system where a single diesel engine is
directly connected to a rotary converter.
The power systems are created by selecting components from the integrated
library and inserting them into the power system. The library contains components
that are defined by manufactures data on rated power, system efficiency, cost
and equipment life. If the library does not contain a component a user would
like to use, a new library record can be created by the user. This record becomes
a permanent part of the library and then can be used in many different projects. - Ian Baring-Gould
