Hybrid Renewable Energy System Optimization using iHOGA
Keywords:HRES, Sizing, Techno-economic Study, iHOGA
Electrical energy is considered to be the heart of modern civilization. Traditional electrical
energy generation approaches which usually rely on oil and its derivatives, produce different kinds of pollution in addition to being expensive to implement and maintain. And most important, they are exhaustible on the long run. The sun is an unlimited source of energy for humanity around the world and a competitive energy with strong potential. The solar systems technology offers a promising method for the large scale use of solar energy in the southern zone of Algeria. The magnitude of solar radiation is the most important parameter for sizing these systems. This study presents a techno-economic feasibility evaluation for an installation of a stand-alone PV system which covers the electric demand of 20 houses in the province of Tindouf located in the South-West of Algeria. The aim is to select the appropriate components and see the results of the simulation using the hybrid simulator iHOGA, which include the total cost, CO2 emissions and their impact on the environment.
