Grid-Connected Photo Voltaic System Design for Koya Software Engineering Department in Iraq
International Journal of Engineering Trends and Technoloy
The depletion of fossil fuel resources on a worldwide basis has necessitated an urgent search for alternative energy sources to meet up the present day demands. Solar energy being a clean, inexhaustible and environment-friendly potential resource among all renewable energy options. It uses Photovoltaic system to change the sunlight directly to electricity. Photovoltaic system is one of the attractive candidates for green power generation. The system developed in such a way that it can be
... at it can be connected to the Grid system to provide the demand load. From this point the term grid-connected PV system was started. In this paper the Grid-Connected PV system designed to supply 20% of the load demand for the software engineering department of Koya University in koya city in iraq. The load is calculated by taking the different appliance wattage in the department and the average hours of operation for them in the four seasons of year. Depending on the maximum load demand, the system designed to generate 20% of the peak load which is 30KW. The designed system will integrate with the utility system to form the Grid-connected PV system. The application of the designed system will be the first challenge of generating green electricity in koya city.
