Hybrid Power Plants (HyPP) combine at least two traditional Renewable Energy Sources (RES) and/or an Energy Storage System (ESS) under the same Point-of-CommonCoupling (PCC). Among other advantages, they hold the potential to increase the profitability of RES in a subsidy free market while also supporting the grid similarly as traditional units. Haringvliet is the first utility-scale HyPP of Europe. It is compound by 22, 38 and 12 MW of Wind Farm, PVs and Battery Storage System (BSS) respectively which effectively represents a 50 MVA HyPP. Future plans involve the inclusion of a Hydrogen production unit. This paper discusses Vattenfall’s motivation behind going hybrid, the plant’s layout, and the controller’s features; as well as the design process, lessons learned and future development stages. The simulation results confirmed that the developed controller provides a very good precision and the studied HyPP fulfils all needed requirements.
