The aim of this study is an economic and technical analysis of a hybrid system in the Semirom city of Iran that is performed by a technical-economic analysis on combined utilization of solar-wind and diesel system. In this study HOMER software is utilized for economic assessment and optimization. At first, the related meteorological data gathered and then using Homer software the calculation was carried out. This city has good potential for solar and wind energy. The solar radiation ranges of Semirom city is from 2.88 to 7.78 kWh/m2/d, and the wind speed ranges are from 2.9 to 5.3 m/s. Solar and wind analyses on Semirom show that this city have great potential in solar and wind energy generation because this city has a proper position to receive sun solar and has high potential in wind speed for wind power generation. Regarding this study and due to high potential in solar and wind energy in Semirom, investments on renewable energy sector of this city will be economically justified. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Technology and Economics of Smart Grids and Sustainable Energy Springer Journals

Abstract

The aim of this study is an economic and technical analysis of a hybrid system in the Semirom city of Iran that is performed by a technical-economic analysis on combined utilization of solar-wind and diesel system. In this study HOMER software is utilized for economic assessment and optimization. At first, the related meteorological data gathered and then using Homer software the calculation was carried out. This city has good potential for solar and wind energy. The solar radiation ranges of Semirom city is from 2.88 to 7.78 kWh/m2/d, and the wind speed ranges are from 2.9 to 5.3 m/s. Solar and wind analyses on Semirom show that this city have great potential in solar and wind energy generation because this city has a proper position to receive sun solar and has high potential in wind speed for wind power generation. Regarding this study and due to high potential in solar and wind energy in Semirom, investments on renewable energy sector of this city will be economically justified.
