This paper presents a desalination system driven by a hybrid power supply system in Nikhil region, Sinai desert, Egypt. Reverse osmosis (RO) desalination plant with a capacity of 100 m3/day is supplied by hybrid photovoltaic battery (PVB) system for brackish water. To overcome the intermittent nature of solar energy, PVB power source have been introduced. Also, Sizing PVB system to match the required load is discussed. Moreover, a control of battery current through dc-dc bi-directional converter is presented to maintain the dc link voltage at its reference value. The Simulation of PVB-RO system is accomplished using Matlab/Simulink. The results show that the outputs of PVB-RO system have a good response.
