Abstract

This work looks at the feasibility of a standalone hybrid power generation system for providing power to a rural community in the Pacific Islands. The optimization and sensitivity analysis of a proposed PV/Wind/Diesel hybrid System is performed together with economic analysis. We have used HOMER, a sizing and optimization tool for distributed power system, developed by National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) for our analysis. The sensitivity analysis was done using wind speed data and diesel price as variables. An Ice storage facility having a corrected mean daily load of 60 kWh/day was considered as the stand-alone load. The life cycle cost analysis was done for a number of scenarios with different renewable energy contribution to the total electricity produced.
