Capacity Estimation of Pump Storage System for Microgrid with Resourceful Use of RES in Deregulated Power Sector

Digambar Singh, Yog Raj Sood

Abstract


The present era dominates with green energy, such as the wind, solar, geothermal, tidal, ocean, bio, etc., since these sources plentifully available, pollution free, zero noise. Power shortages in rural, as well as remote areas, encourage the development of green energy sources. To meet the demand by dissimilar configurations such as standalone or grid interconnected microgrid. Standalone green energy microgrid provides the most appropriate solution for electrification of rural and remote areas. This paper has been presented a proposed approach for energy storage system through pumping in the form of water potential. A standalone microgrid with storage system is capable to provide continuous and reliable supply by a little loss of load. The two case studies have been proposed for continuous power supply operation of the standalone microgrid. The first case has been considered without pump storage system and the second case considered with the storage system. The optimal capacity of the pump storage has been determined. The work has been validated 3-microgrid interconnected system with green energy generation.
