Autonomous energy supply systems provide the possibility of producing electricity without the connection to an interconnected power grid. While modem computer programs are able to simulate such systems in detail, they usually do not take into account the time varying availability of renewable energy sources, component life and repair times. In addition, safety aspects which are important if e.g. hydrogen is involved in the system are normally not addressed. This is done in the present paper.
