Title:Rural Electrification with PV Hybrid systems - T9 - 11072013 - Updated Feb2014
Issue date:2014/02/27
Description:With decreasing PV prices, PV / diesel hybrid minigrids attract significant attention from institutions in charge of rural electrification and donor agencies - to mitigate fuel price increases, deliver operating cost reductions, and offer higher service quality than traditional single-source generation systems. The combining of technologies provides interesting opportunities to overcome certain technical limitations. Written by Gregoire LENA (IED), this publication aims to present the state of the art situation of PV / diesel hybrid systems for rural electrification and to highlight the main remaining issues – from the design, technical and implementation perspectives.
