Designing and study standalone hybrid energy system: for technical institutes

Hybrid energy source is becoming popular because it is composed of two or more energy sources. This combination of two energy sources is an efficient way of generating energy. Hybrid energy systems are used in remote Hybrid renewable areas for power generation. This project gives the design idea of a very efficient Hybrid Energy System in which solar energy with a conventional diesel generator operate together for producing sufficient power for a technical college (GIET, Gunupur). For this hybrid system, the required data of Solar energy, wind speed, are taken for Gunupur (the lap of the Eastern Ghat, India). It is located at 83˚13'E 19˚60'N. The pattern of load consumption of Gandhi institute of Engineering and Technology, Gunupur College are studied and properly modelled for optimization of the hybrid energy system using HOMER PRO software. This project gives the detail hypothetical study for standalone hybrid energy system for technical institute in five stages: 1) Recent electric bill of the college for the year 2015; 2) Studying the load demand for every month in a year; 3) Calculating the highest, lowest and the average load demand; 4) Introducing the solar data in HOMER PRO software; e) Designing the hybrid energy model. This system is very cost effective and more environmental friendly over the conventional diesel generator. It should reduced approximate 75% - 85% fuel cost over conventional diesel generator and also creates no pollution. The action plan is designed on the basis of cost effective modeling that is minimization of energy production cost in a long run.
