Abstract

This paper aims to provide an alternative green energy source for a remote GSM base station. To achieve this a hybrid power generating system comprises a wind turbine, photovoltaic panels, and a fuel cell with the incorporation of the electrolyzer and a hydrogen tank. for the production and uniform supply of hydrogen for the fuel cell. The system will be controlled logically by a power flow controller which intern will help to provide continuous power to the base station based on the analysis of economic optimization power generation. The analytic approach of a hybrid system such the one proposed which feeds a load (Base Station) HOMER software will carry out our application. With the realization of our simulation results, what has been found is that renewable energy sources are a feasible solution to reduce air contaminants by other sources of energy like diesel generators and also applications at remote locations to distribute power generation for stand-alone base stations.
