This study proposes a power quality analysis based on the frequency response of an isolated industrial hybrid power plant. The power system and its control strategy are modelled using MATLAB/SIMULINK and simulated using high resolution irradiance data. The results are used to validate a power quality criterion designed to size a hybrid PV-genset power plant. Finally, an economic analysis shows that neglecting the power quality issues at the sizing stage, it may lead to misjudging the plant’s performance.
