  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.

  3. 3. Optimization of a battery energy storage system : For utilization of peak shaving and fast frequency reserve

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för tillämpad fysik och elektronik

    Author : Robert Sundgren; [2020]
    Keywords : battery energy stroage system optimization;

    Abstract : As Sweden switches to increasing renewable electricity production the demand on the energy grid and energy market will become higher. Since a bigger part of the electricity consumption will come from flowing energy sources the production will become less stable and harder to plan with the consumption. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Feasibility of Photovoltaics in Shadow Intensive Areas

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS); KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Alexander Isakson; Tobias Tunestam; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The  shift  towards  renewable  energy  sources  is  ongoing,  and  with  scientific  advances  constantly being  made  within  the  area,  solar  panels  are  becoming  cheaper  and  more  efficient  by  the  day. Thus far, solar panels are almost exclusively being installed in areas where little to no shading is present since the shadows are a detriment to their performance. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the Profitability of Large-scale PV Plants in Sweden : Site Selection, Grid Connection and Design

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Annelie Westén; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The market for large scale PV plants in Sweden is growing, with six PV plants of 1 MWp or more beinginstalled today. The size of the newly installed plants has increased from 1 MWp to 5.5 MWp during thelast 5 years. As the market and size of the plants continue to grow, larger investments, risks and possibleprots will be built into the project. READ MORE
