• Distributed Green Power Systems to Electrify a Village – A Comparative Study

S. P. Singh, B. P. Gupta*

Abstract


Different systems based on various renewable energy sources have been developed as per specifications, norms and guidelines issued by Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Government of India from time to time and other companies as per R & D carried out in their research centres. As far as local availability of resources is concerned, in general, all are some of the renewable resources like - solar, wind, cattle, perennial streams, agricultural & forest residues and waste land are available in most of the un-electrified remote villages of Madhya Pradesh being considered for electrification. Analysis of possibilities of electrifying a typical village having all the natural resources mentioned earlier with pros and cons and components associated with each option with a focus on optimization of a suitable hybrid model having combination of two or more systems dependent on locally available resources is to be highlighted. Option VI (Solar Photovoltaic + 100% biogas gen-set) is advised to be the best, green and eco-friendly alternative for electrification of remote un-electrified villages. In this option waste materials like- cow dung, de-oiled cake etc would not only be converted to valuable bio-manure but also to biogas which would be used for power production.
