Abstract: Renewable energy sources are gaining more attention due to quick reduction of fossil fuels, global warming and energy crisis over the past few decades. Photovoltaic and Wind are the outstanding sources among the various offered renewable sources owing to the complementary nature of these sources. But the availability of the generated energy and the cost of the system are the two major limitations of these sources. Hybrid Power System (HPS) can alleviate the deviations in energy generated with the assistance of energy storage systems like batteries. On the other hand the cost of the energy needs to be minimized. Therefore, optimization of energy generation with storage system in light of investment cost and unpredictability alleviation is imposing to the monetary achievability of Hybrid Power System. This work presents a novel methodology based on Satin Bower Bird optimization to obtain the optimal sizing and power management of hybrid photovoltaic/wind/battery power system. The HPS has been simulated using MATLAB using practical load and weather data of PV and wind system: which gives better performance under all operating conditions.
