Design of Smart Grid in Rural Areas Using Homer

Abhishek Juneja, Dr. Tilak Thakur

Smart Grid is a network created through information technology, communication technology and electrical power system. It is simply a smarter power grid which ensures a two-way communication between user and the power supplier. It mainly takes into consideration the renewable energy resources for its operation. This concept is used in this paper to supply energy in rural areas of India, where still over 4500 villages are not electrified. The paper proposes a smart microgrid design in one such Indian village called Dheeya of Rajasthan state, using solar PV panels, wind turbines and batteries and HOMER software is used for simulation and optimization of the hybrid power plant including the cost aspects for various loads throughout one complete year.
