Performance analysis of hybrid PV/diesel/battery system using HOMER
What is it about?
This study considered two decentralized power stations in Sabah, Malaysia; each contains different combination of photovoltaic (PV), diesel generators, system converters, and storage batteries. The work was built upon previous related site surveys and data collections from each site. Verification of the site data sets, simulation of different operational scenarios, and a comparison with the optimum design were all considered in the work.
Why is it important?
This study has demonstrated that the presence of RE sources improves the performance of standalone systems and reduces energy storage requirements
