This paper presents one possible solution of hybrid electrical power supply for military units without electric connection to electric distribution network. The hybrid photovoltaic and diesel aggregates island's power supply with maximal power of 80 kW and daily energy of 400 kWh is shown in this paper. The advantages of this system are: reduced consumption of fossil fuels, efficient use of fossil fuels, reduced emissions, improved energy system reliability, ensuring continuous electric supply and increasing life of diesel engines. The working concept is such that hybrid system uses photovoltaic panels for prime power and diesel generators as a secondary source of energy. We expect creating such a system as a test installation, soon.
