Hybrid power are combinations between different technologies to produce power.

In power engineering, the term 'hybrid' describes a combined power and energy storage system.[1] It does not mean a "method," such as the popular use of hybrid to mean a hybrid electric vehicle like the Toyota Prius. Although the drive train in the Toyota Prius can accurately be described as a hybrid power system.

Examples of power producers used in hybrid power are photovoltaics, wind turbines, and various types of Engine-generators - e.g. diesel gen-sets.[2]

Hybrid power plants often contain a renewable energy component (such as PV) that is balanced via a second form of generation or storage such as a diesel genset, fuel cell or battery storage system. They can also provide other forms of power such as heat for some applications.[3][4]

Hybrid power system[edit]

Hybrid systems, as the name implies, combine two or more renewable source of energy together. There are lots of combination and all of them are alternative to each other. solar energy ,wind energy,bio fuel, fuel cell, etc there are lot we only need to combine. There are lots of hybrid park generated by government but they cannot work as primary grid.so basically what happens in hybrid generation is this ,that we generate power from different sources and , as per our requirement we convert ac to dc or vice versa.. power from different sources needed to be synchronised , if not then there will be wastage of power .so all the generated power is synchronised and then load are connected to the end . Thus in this way phenomenon of hybrid system works
