Optimal Sizing of Hybrid Renewable Energy Systems with Homer

From A to Z with inclusive hands-on projects

Due to environmental challenges and depletion of fossil fuels, renewable energies are getting so much attention. However, due to the intermittent characteristic of renewable energies, using them as standalone mode could not be reliable. Therefore we need to integrate renewable technologies together to solve this issue. the integrated system needs to be optimally sized to reduce the cost and economically feasible.

What you’ll learn

  • Designing an integrated renewable energy System For remote Microgrid (Off-Grid).
  • Designing an integrated renewable energy System For Urban Microgrid (Grid-Connected).
  • Techno-economic assessment of energy systems using Homer software.
  • Results evaluation and understaning the economic parameters.
  • improving the levelized cost of energy.

Optimal Sizing of Hybrid Renewable Energy Systems with Homer

Requirements

  • No requirement.

Due to environmental challenges and depletion of fossil fuels, renewable energies are getting so much attention. However, due to the intermittent characteristic of renewable energies, using them as standalone mode could not be reliable. Therefore we need to integrate renewable technologies together to solve this issue. the integrated system needs to be optimally sized to reduce the cost and economically feasible.

To achieve this aim and size and manage our integrated energy system model, we want to develop our model in Homer software. Homer software will then perform optimization on our model to minimize the net present cost of the system.

In this course, I tried to explain all you need for designing your system and technically and economically assessment of it using Homer software for the first time on the Udemy website.

This course is not theory and will give you this opportunity to learn designing energy systems as fast as possible by hands-on projects.

 

I am so excited to start this course with you and ready to answer all your questions in the comments.

 

See you!
