Performance Evaluation and Simulation of ON-GRID PV Plant in Baghdad-Iraq

Mohammed Adnan Hameed | Dr. Qais Matti Alias | Abeer Salman Obeid

Abstract: In Iraq, electricity blackouts, rolling blackouts and brownouts remain a very frequent event at grid-connected settlements, leaving the humanitarian community dependent on expensive and polluting diesel generators. Renewables still persist to control a new addition to the global power generation since the past few decades. The capacity of the renewables reached about 2527 GW by the end of 2019, about 176 GW from the former year. Far east once again accomplished more than the half of the new installations of PV system plants. Europe and North of USA, meanwhile, achieving bigger steps in their renewable expansion. Solar power and wind form 90% of the world?s newly added renewable capacity. Iraq has been known and listed by affluence oil and gas reservoirs but Iraq also has one of the highest solar irradiation levels in the region at above 1899 kWh/m? in some areas of Iraq west and south areas, such as Al-Anbar and Al-Muthanna governorates respectively. This work analyzes and simulates the performance of a 100kWp ON-GRID connection Si_poly photovoltaic roof-mounted system deployed in the Training and Energy Research Office (TERO) in Baghdad. The yearly performance ratio is around 77.24% and the normalized production of inverter output (O/P) or final system production yield, i.e. beneficial energy is 4.29kWh/kWp/day. The emulation is executed by using PVSyst., V6.88 software. Moreover, the overall losses along the year were also computed.
