Abstract: This work is a design and implementation of a photovoltaic system to power the Very high frequency Omnidirectional Range (VOR) station of the Maroua - Salak airport in the Far North region of Cameroon with electrical energy. The strong solar irradiation favours the implementation of this electric system. Solar photovoltaic energy is a solution to the electrification of isolated areas far from the power distribution network. This system supplies devices of the VOR station which comprises the VOR including 200W power accessories, air conditioner Split of 735, 5W and five fluorescent lamps for 90W. The 4800Wp photovoltaic plant consists of 48 modules of 100Wp and occupies an area of 130.65 m˛. The storage system has a capacity of 243600 Ah composed of 84 batteries of 2900 Ah of 2.1V with a maximum autonomy of 7 days. The energy monthly production of the system on the year of test is included between 528.57 kWh and 768.76 kWh. These results are satisfactory and interesting for the functioning of the station. The system is the appropriate reliable energy solution. It greatly contributes to sustainable development of the remote areas.
