The significance and rapid rise of distributed power generation utilizing alternative energy sources have been receiving a lot of attention today. Due to the high worldwide demand for clean and sustainable energy, microgrid systems have emerged as a promising solution to improve energy reliability while promoting the grid’s insertion of renewable energy sources. To maximize energy production, storage, and distribution, the thesis revolves around the design and simulation of a solar–wind–battery–diesel generator hybrid microgrid system for the Havza Waste Water Treatment Plant located in Izmir, Turkey. HOMER Pro program is used in this report, which is a sophisticated tool commonly used for microgrid analysis and optimization. The economic analysis and emission rates are obtained for the system.
