Hybrid AC/DC Microgrid Modelling for Affordable Rural Electrification

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • Uninterrupted and adequate electricity supply to the resident of rural areas is still a big challenge due to the shortage of national electricity production and a weak distribution system in many countries. Along with these issues, the current high Cost of Electricity (COE) is another hindrance of ensuring electricity for rural people. To mitigate this economic impediment along with addressing environmental issues, a microgrid (MG) could be a suitable solution. This work proposes a PV-Wind-Battery-Gas connected MG architecture that provides a reasonable level of CO2 emission in two differently located remote urban areas. Simulation results conclude that the proposed model can provide environment friendly as well as economical electrification.
