Abstract

DESIGN OF SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAIC POWER SYSTEM FOR DUGURIYEL VILLAGE USING SOLARPRO

Nuhu Mohammed*, Ademola Bello Adisa, Habou Dandakouta and Aje Tokan

ABSTRACT

The quest for diversification of power generation source in Nigeria is becoming necessary, going by the lingering power shortage experienced. Many rural communities in the country are situated far from grid electricity and are characterised by low population densities (about 165.4 people per sq.km) and disperse settlement, making the construction of electrification infrastructure very challenging, expensive and time-consuming. Although, the country has in abundance renewable and non-renewable energy sources capable of providing the needed power for her growth and development if justly harnessed, yet, the country faces huge power deficit due to gas shortage, vandalism activities and poor infrastructure, which necessitate the study of a better approach for sustainability and energy security. The Government has an expansion strategy of electricity generation from renewable energy with solar photovoltaic to contribute 75MW by 2020. In this research, an off-grid solar photovoltaic farm was designed for Duguriyel village Bauchi using solarPro. Estimated load demand of the village was found to be 1702.84 kWhr/day and that of solar radiation was 5.2 kW/m2/yr. Result of solar photovoltaic farm shows that solar facility capacity of 444 kW has to be installed over 2396.2 m2 to generate an average of 1788.89 kWhr/day of power.
