Abstract Countries worldwide all endeavor to the exploration of renewable energy sources (RES) in an attempt to contain the emission of carbon dioxide thereby curbing global warmings. This study aims to hybrid power system (HPS) consisting of redundant RES with energy storage system (ESS) to propose power efficiency-related measures evaluation procedure. Furthermore, a preventive maintenance (PM) model simultaneously considering benefits of conducting maintenance and resources consumption incurred was established. This study also developed a GA-based algorithm to optimize the established PM model. Finally, a simulated case verifies the efficacy of the proposed approach. The ramification of this study furthers the sustainability and maintainability of clean energy system.
