Techno-Economic Feasibility of Wind-Solar Hybrid Systems For Rural Electrification of Sioure Village in Sahel
This paper focused on techno-economic feasibility analysis of Sioure village to develop wind-solar hybrid model by using HOMER (Hybrid Optimization Model for Electric Renewables) software. The case study area is Sioure, one village in Sahel. Sioure village locates in 16° 27' 23.98" N latitude and 14° 8' 50.98" W longitude (North of Senegal). It is a remote village dependent on agriculture, livestock and fisheries, with no grid extension. This village has enormous potential in terms of production of renewable energy to bridge a gap for electricity supply. From NASA record, the monthly average solar radiation data 5.87 kWh/m2/day and wind data (4.4m/s) can be the generation source for village electrification case. Therefore, the wind-solar hybrid system is an alternative to supply the production of electricity in this village. From hybrid model simulation, the cost of energy is about 0.1879/kWhwhenthetotalnetpresentcostisabout588,566.The system has no greenhouse gas emission. While the selling price of Electricity is considered in 0.20$ (120 FCFA), the simulation result is more economical system to design integrated system with minimum total net present cost and cost of electricity. Therefore, this wind-solar hybrid model design can able to be the single most favored option for dealing with electricity supply in the study area not only economically but also environmentally.
