Abstract

This paper assessed optimal configurations of hybrid renewable system for health clinic in Jamshedpur. The clinic consists of doctor rooms, pharmacy, dressing room, pantry, day care and other equipment with average total daily energy consumption of 219.97kWh and 31.54kWpeak demand. The analysis is carried out by investigating the potentials of solar energy and collecting data from different sources. Hybrid Optimization Model for Electric Renewable (HOMER) software is used to analyse the available data and economic feasibility of the proposed hybrid power system, by considering two energy resources; photovoltaic (PV) and diesel with battery energy storage. The result obtained revealed hybrid PV/diesel/battery system as the most cost-effective configuration for powering health clinic. The selected optimal configuration is far better than the conventional diesel stand-alone system in terms of cost and emission reduction.
