Hybrid Power Generation as an Environmental Friendly Energy Supply Solution for Remote Area in Indonesia

Burhanuddin Halimi
Abstract—This paper focuses on the optimal solution to provide a more environmental friendly electrical power supply for remote areas which usually have many problems regarding electricity supply. Due to their remote location, it is very impractical to deliver the electrical energy from power generation plants by using the conventional method. To solve this problem, generator sets are commonly utilized for providing electrical power for these kind of areas. But their fuel storage and transportation issues are not quite easy to be dealt with. Moreover, considering the environmental impacts, the use of fossil fuels should be minimized.
The proposed system adopts a stand-alone hybrid photovoltaic, wind turbine and fuel cell power system without battery storage support. The best combination of these three resources are computationally analyzed to get the optimal result. To obtain the optimal result, the proposed system is analyzed using HOMER software. By adopting the baseline load average of 225 kW or 5,397 kWh/d with peak load of 290 kW, it was obtained that the optimal system is PV array of 7,000 kW, 6 x @250 kW wind turbines, fuel cell of 350 kW which is supported by 2,000 kW electrolyzer.

Index Terms—Fuel cell, hybrid system, photovoltaic, wind turbine.
