  1. 1. Techno-economic study for a 50 MW PV plant in Nigeria

    University essay from Högskolan Dalarna/Energiteknik

    Author : Jacob Kelly; [2021]
    Keywords : Photovoltaics; monofacial; bifacial; fixed mounting; single-axis tracking; inverter loading ratio; utility PV plant; solar farm; LCOE optimisation; Nigeria;

    Abstract : As part of Nigeria’s drive to increase electricity production capacity and shift to renewable sources, a new 50 MW photovoltaic (PV) plant is proposed for a town in north-west Nigeria. Rather than using conventional monofacial modules and fixed mounting, it is of interest to consider a selection of new technologies which are attracting growing attention in the global utility PV market.
