Dates: 17 – 21 October 2016
Register: Course: Rural Electrification using PV-Diesel Hybrid Systems
Description: Decentralized micro-/minigrids will play a major role for the electrification (not only) of rural/island communities in emerging countries. A majority of these micro-/minigrids will be powered by renewable sources such as solar PV and wind power. In this training we will focus on PV-Diesel hybrid systems with a high solar share. In a real-life case study we will be planning a system from scratch. That means we will talk in depth about available system topologies (DC- and/or AC-coupling) and currently available industry components incl. energy storage solutions. A focus will be the sizing procedure and its validation using simulation tools. In RENAC’s brand new PV-Hybrid lab you will then put together a real hybrid system and monitor its operation.
Besides technical issues the training will also cover socio-economic topics and analyze the project’s business case and financial implications. Both of these points are key factors for the sustainability of a rural electrification project.
After the seminar, participants will be able to:
- Evaluate components, system topologies & available industry products
- Size and simulate systems
- Identify risks and their mitigation strategies
- Calculate a business case for rural electrification projects.
This training suits those who:
- Are responsible for power generation systems in rural areas.
- Want to extend their grid-interactive PV knowledge to off-grid PV systems
- Need to evaluate the opportunities solar powered micro-/minigrids
- Basic knowledge of PV system components and energy yield is an advantage.
