AbstractA reliable communication system is essential for the operation of a remote hybrid power system. Such a system is needed to interconnect the wind turbines, diesel generators, and the hydrogen energy storage unit with a centralized supervisory controller and data acquisition system. For the purpose of this research, we have considered the remote wind-diesel-hydrogen hybrid power system currently under development at Ramea, Newfoundland. This thesis illustrates the implementation of a half-duplex collective transmission agreement with low RF transceivers and Power Line Carrier modems which allows the system to have a redundancy network and provide uninterrupted communication between the wind turbines and the main power building. Power line couplers with high pass filters and high frequency amplifiers are also designed and implemented to permit data transmission through high voltage power lines without affecting the performance of the data acquisition system. The research also provides the description of wind turbines parameters being measured at Ramea's remote hybrid power solution.
