Abstract: The increasing integration of renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar, into the power grid necessitates advanced control and optimization techniques to manage their intermittent nature. This research paper proposes the utilization of an Ensemble Kalman Filter (EnKF) method for the adaptive operation of hybrid power systems consisting of hydro, wind, and solar sources in the context of India's diverse and dynamic energy landscape. The EnKF algorithm, renowned for its capability in estimating and forecasting system states, is employed to optimize the operation of these hybrid systems by dynamically adjusting power generation based on real-time measurements and predictions.
