Optimization of a Solar Photovoltaic, Biomass Gasifier and Fuel Cell Hybrid System


EnergyCentre, Maulana Azad National institute of Technology, Bhopal, India


In this paper sun situated photovoltaic (PV), fuel cell, biomass gasifier generator set, battery reinforcement and force molding unit have mimicked and advanced for an instructive establishment, Energy Center, Maulana Azad National Institute of Technology, Bhopal in the Indian condition of Madhya Pradesh. The zone of the study range on the aide arranged of 23° 12' N scope and 77°24'E longitude. In this structure, the key wellspring of force is sun based sunlight based photovoltaic framework and biomass gasifier generator set while fuel cell and batteries were used as fortification supply. Hybrid optimization model for electric renewable test system has been used to reproduce off the framework and it checks the particular and money related criteria of this cross breed vitality framework. The execution of each section of this structure is analyzed in conclusion. The sensitivity examination was performed to upgrade the blend system at different conditions. In a perspective of the entertainment result, it is found that the expense of vitality of a biomass gasifier generator set, sunlight based on PV and power device hybrid vitality framework was observed to be 15.064 Rs/kWh.
