Design and Analysing of an Off-grid Hybrid Renewable Energy System to Supply Electricity in Small Industries: A Case of Tanzania

From energypedia


In the present world, every country is giving important place on energy security and sustainable development; hence role of renewable energy has become ever more significant. With the expectation of promoting electricity generation based on non-conventional renewable energy The rapid industrialization and growth of Tanzania human population have resulted in the unprecedented increase in the demand for energy and in particular electricity. Depletion of fossil fuels and impacts of global warming caused widespread attention using renewable energy sources, especially wind and solar energies. Energy security under varying weather conditions and the corresponding system cost are the two major issues in designing hybrid power generation systems.
The design of hybrid Renewable energy system is an important issue in small industries to increse productivity. Through this thesis it is expected to give concern about development of hybrid power generation systems for small Industries in Tanzania. The selected Industry is going to be analyzed using a software tool. Hybrid Optimization Model for Electric Renewables (HOMER) software will be used to analyze the data, the software is a micro-power optimization model for both off-grid and grid connected power systems in a variety of applications.
