The main Objective of this paper is to propose a hybrid energy system containing solar photovoltaic panels, hydro generator, biogas-generator and a diesel generator for electrification in chittagong hill tract regions of Bangladesh. This work also presents a optimized hybrid scheme consisting of the Net Present Cost (NPC) and renewable fraction. A hill tract region called Barkal in Chittagong is considered for this project. All the simulations are carried on HOMER software. Simulation input data are collected from the survey of that region. A 20kW hydro power project is going on by the Ministry of Chittagong Hill Tracts Affairs in this area which is developed by CANMET Energy Diversification Research Laboratory of Canada (CEDRL). Our research can incorporate this project with some more hydro, solar & biomass energy resources to design an optimized system which can motivate other hilly regions also.
