Abstract-According to energy data from General Electricity Company of Libya, electricity demand in Libya is growing about 9 per cent every year. Thus, increasing number of power generators are needed to meet the electricity demand and prevent power outage. In this paper, Available renewable energy sources in Baniwalid are studied to select a best renewable energy sources for a hybrid mini-grid power system. HOMER Software is used to perform details of financial and simulation analysis. The component of the system are Generators, PV system, and energy storage system. The Average load is 35.98MW in 2015 with peak load 85MW. Optimization results show large scale 76MW PV system. Hoppecke 26OPzS batteries for energy storage can provide a reliable power in that area. System design and location has been studied in details and results are presented in the paper. Key words: Renewable energy, PV systems, mini-grid power systems, electricity production in Libya, data collection and system sizing.
