Solar hybrid power systems are hybrid power systems that combine solar power from a photo voltaic system with another power generating energy source. A common type is a photo voltaic diesel hybrid system, combining photo voltaic (PV) and diesel generators, or diesel gen sets, as PV has hardly any marginal cost and is treated with priority on the grid. The diesel gen sets are used to constantly fill in the gap between the present load and the actual generated power by the PV system.
