Site characterization for hybrid system construction

Abstract

The basic reason to use alternative systems for electricity generation, in most cases, is the lack of electricity services, such as isolated rural communities which are located far away from the electric distribution line, and the cost of its extension is too expensive, while decentralized power systems can be an economic and appropriate solution to providing these services. Up to now there are several technological options for rural electrification using PV modules, wind plants, water-power plants, anaerobic digesters, or a combination of some of them, according to the availability of energetic resources. The applications include centralized or decentralized systems, autonomous or hybrid systems, isolated or interconnected to the electric line, etc. A particular hybrid system design can be done considering two general aspects, first it is necessary to know the electric consumption that will be supplied, taking into account present and future necessities and how local energetic resources are present in a selected site. Finally, also it is necessary to carry out an economic analysis to determine the cost of kilowatt-hour generated using local energetic resources and compare it with the cost of electricity produced by conventional power systems.

[Espanol] La razon principal para el uso de sistemas alternativos de generacion de electricidad, en la mayoria de los casos, es la falta de servicios de electricidad, tal como en las comunidades rurales aisladas localizadas lejos de linea de distribucion electrica, donde el costo de su extension es demasiado caro, mientras que los sistemas descentralizados de energia pueden ser una solucion economica y adecuada para proporcionar estos servicios. Hasta ahora existen varias opciones tecnologicas para la electrificacion rural usando modulos fotovoltaicos, aerogeneradores, plantas hidroelectricas, digestores anaerobicos o una combinacion de algunos de ellos, de acuerdo con la disponibilidad de los recursos energeticos. Las aplicaciones incluyen sistemas centralizados o descentralizados sistemas autonomos o hibridos, aislados o interconectados a la linea electrica, etc. Se puede hacer un diseno de un sistema hibrido en particular considerando dos aspectos generales, primero, es necesario conocer el consumo electrico que sera proporcionado, tomando en cuenta necesidades presentes y futuras y como estan presentes los recursos energeticos locales en un sitio seleccionado. Finalmente, tambien es necesario efectuar un analisis economico para determinar el costo del kilowatt-hora generado usando recursos energeticos locales y compararlo con el costo de la electricidad producida por sistemas de potencia convencionales.}
