Generators are mostly employed in isolated locations that are not wired into the energy grid. Generators are regarded as non-renewable resources because of the harm they do to the environment and the potential risk they pose to human health. In order to lessen the impacts of the diesel generator and solve the issue of voltage fluctuation for the photovoltaic system, it was decided to integrate the diesel generator with the solar system. When a voltage fluctuation occurs, an electronic circuit is built to connect the generator and solar system in a hybrid system (PvDHSoccurred). On the basis of climate data, the system was examined and enhanced. The hybrid optimization model for renewable energy programmes employed local insolation measurements and meteorological data in collaboration with various system components and configurations to optimise the design that results in the lowest energy cost. system with a 3 kW power output In addition to lowering carbon dioxide emissions, the solar system and a 2 kW diesel generator were chosen to solve the voltage fluctuation issue.
