Abstract: Reliable electric power supply is still remained a major problem in rural India. Off grid renewable sources of energy have been applied in the last few years to increase reliability but not succeeding to be realistic because of too high energy costs compared to the national grid. Grid Integrated Minigrids with Storage (Grid Integrated Mini Grids) have potential to provide reliable power supply at reasonably priced by combining Mini-Grids and National Grid services. This research paper analyzed different aspects of the GRID INTEGRATED MINI GRIDS practicability. The feasibility of the use of hybrid – solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems and wind in Grid Integrated Mini-grids
Keywords: Grid integrated mini-grid, photovoltaic (PV), rural electrification, renewable energy, grids with storage.
