This study is based on the simulation and optimization of renewable energy system of a Police Control Room Sagar Central India. The meteorological data of solar insolation, hourly wind speed, are taken from Sagar Central India (Longitude 78° 45′ and Latitude 23°50) and the pattern of load consumption of Police control room is studied and suitably modeled for the optimization of the hybrid energy system using HOMER software. The report offers a reliability assessment of hybrid renewable energy system of the field region. Weather data and the load profile of the study area are recorded and fault tree analysis is used for the reliability assessment of hybrid renewable energy system which further provides a static depiction of the combinations of failures and actions that can cause the specified critical fault to occur.
