  • Wind Generators as Role Models

    Advanced speed control methods are available for the regulation of wind generators. Working together with SET Sustainable Energy Technologies GmbH, Sulzer made use of one of these new concepts on pumps for the first time and implemented it with great success on a feedwater pump in a refinery. Unregulated pumps consume unnecessary drive energy when demand fluctuates. By controlling ...

  • Optimal sizing of a hybrid energy system for a semi-arid climate using an evolutionary algorithm

    The use of a genetic algorithm (GA) for optimal sizing of an off-grid hybrid renewable energy system (HRES) is reported. As a pre-feasibility analysis and to determine the appropriate HRES type to be studied, wind energy potential and solar irradiation are first examined for the considered region (Tehran, Iran). These are inputs of the algorithm, and are assessed throughout a year utilising ...

  • Optimum use of renewable energy resources to generate electricity via hybrid system

    The necessity of hybrid energy system is gaining more importance day by day as it incorporates two or more than two renewable energy resources that when integrated overcome limitations inherent in either. Hybrid energy system has been seen as an excellent solution for electrification of rural place where the grid extension is difficult and economically not feasible. Such system may consist of ...

  • Inclusion of biodiesel and PV modules in a wind diesel hybrid system supplying electrical loads on a small farm

    The growing interest in biofuels is a consequence of the need to reduce operating costs of energy systems and the need to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. The same applies to PV modules, comprising a solution environmentally desirable for power generation. This paper presents a study on the inclusion of biodiesel and PV modules in a system already in operation on a small farm in southern ...

  • Emerging Technologies – How will they change our lives?

    Forward planning by governmental agencies is often criticized for being too focused on short term political mandate priorities.  A recent report by Policy Horizons Canada, a federal government agency, on emerging technologies is a refreshing change from that norm.  The report explored how emerging technologies will shape the economy and our society, and what challenges (and ...

  • A hybrid wind/solar/diesel stand alone system optimisation for remote areas in Algeria

    While Algeria has an important potential of wind and solar energies, their share in the primary energy supply is relatively low compared to the fossil energy. In this paper, we propose to carry out a techno–economical study of a hybrid stand alone system in order to draw the attention to the feasibility of such systems. For this purpose, sites of Hassi–R'mel and Adrar have been ...

  • Application of genetic algorithm and neural network for sizing of hybrid photovoltaic wind power generation (HPVWPG) systems

    In this paper, a methodology for sizing of hybrid photovoltaic-wind power generation (HPVWPG) system is described. The purpose of this methodology is to predict the PV-generator area, the capacity of the battery and the capacity of the wind generator in isolated (remote) areas, where the meteorological data (solar irradiation, air temperature, wind speed, etc) are not always available. For this ...

  • Optimal scheduling and operation of hybrid biomass/wind/PV energy system for rural areas

    In this paper, a hybrid energy system consisting of biomass, wind, solar photovoltaic (SPV) and battery, is proposed. The sources are operated to deliver energy at optimum efficiency. An optimisation model is developed to supply the available energy to the loads according to the priority. It is also proposed to maintain a fair level of energy storage to meet the peak load demand together with ...

  • Mr. Pickens, what about plug-in hybrids?

    T. Boone Pickens deserves kudos for his attention-grabbing television campaign aimed at helping America kick the oil habit. The billionaire energy fund manager can stop the most dedicated channel surfer mid-click when he proclaims that our spending on foreign oil could soon become the largest transfer of wealth in human history.Pickens’ plan has two parts. The first calls for more use of wind ...

  • Size optimisation of hybrid wind-PV power generation systems for remote rural areas

    Electrical power generation with renewable energies, such as wind and solar, plays an important role in the electrification of remote rural areas. Since there are always seasonal and synoptic variations in wind and solar resources, a hybrid system, consisting of both wind and solar energy, may be more reliable and economical than a single energy system: this is because either energy can ...
