Performance analysis of a PV/Diesel hybrid system for a remote area in Bangladesh: Effects of dispatch strategies, batteries, and generator selection
Barun K. Das and
Energy, 2019, vol. 169, issue C, 263-276
This paper investigates the performance of PV/Diesel/Batt system for a stand-alone hybrid application in a remote community in Bangladesh meeting a load demand of 350 kWh/day with a 74.34 kW peak load demand. The effects of different dispatch strategies on the Cost of Energy (COE) and the Net Present Cost (NPC) using two major battery technologies (Lead Acid-LA and Lithium-ion) is studied. The study also extended to analyse the effects of selection of diesel generator in Hybrid Optimisation Model for Electric Renewables (HOMER) software tool on the performance indicators.
