Energy Simulation of PV Hybrid System for Remote Villages of Thailand


A surveys conducted in remote rural areas revealed that some people still do not have access to electricity. Subsequently, the Ministry of Interior was assigned to invite relevant agency to a meeting designed to assist those without access to electricity the opportunity to enjoy electricity comprehensively in all households. This paper presents the design simulation of PV Hybrid System for remote village. The design uses real data from field investigated for different regions in Thailand. The obtained data was compiled as load profile. The analysis results will describe for the design for given energy generation from PV hybrid system. The energy to be generated from the back up diesel generator when the power generated from renewable energy technologies fails to meet the energy demand. This information can use as guideline for future developing energy system planning in the area without the sources of electricity.
