Abstract

A significant advantage of renewable energy is its low greenhouse gas emission compared to non-renewable energy sources, such as coal, nuclear energy and natural gas. Additionally, renewable energy resources (RER) can supply power to rural areas of Sarawak at low cost. Sarawak is a state that has abundant RER such as hydro and solar, however, these resources are not continuously available since the period of harvesting hydro resource is different and mainly depends on the season, location and geographic characteristics. The primary objective of this project is to study the optimal design of a hybrid system that can continuously supply the load demands in rural areas of Sarawak. A hybrid system contains solar photovoltaic (PV)/wind with pumped hydro energy storage (PHES) is focussed on in this study. This system is called a hybrid solar PV-Wind system based PHES. Here, the energy storage is the water stored in the small reservoir or large-scale tank. Hybrid optimization model for electrical renewable (HOMER) and matrix laboratory (MATLAB) software have been used to design and evaluate the cost-effectiveness and to subsequently examine the dynamic performance of the system during unforeseen circumstances. The concept of hydro generation has been experimentally validated by using a mini hydro-electrical station. The suggested design under study may reduce the uncertainty of RER. Furthermore, it can continuously keep the light on as the PV or the wind generator energizes the water pump with the availability of solar radiation while at the same the other loads can also be supplied from the solar PV/Wind.
