Modeling and Analysis of a CSP-Biomass Hybrid Solar Power Plant for Rural Electrification in Cameroon

Kamgue Serge | Ndjiya Ngasop [2] | Tetang Abraham | Kuitche Alexis

Abstract: This study presents a comprehensive modeling and thermodynamic analysis of a concentrated solar power (CSP) plant combined with a biomass gas power plant, aimed at addressing rural electrification challenges in Northern Cameroon. Utilizing System Advisor Model (SAM) software, the solar power plants performance under varying solar irradiation conditions throughout the year was simulated. The study reveals that the electrical power output peaks at approximately 5 MWel in December and January and drops to around 1 MWel in August. The findings underscore the potential of CSP-biomass hybrid technology in enhancing rural electrification, emphasizing the importance of hybridization for consistent power supply and the role of thermal storage in extending operational hours.
