Abstract

In the project on a PV system with gas-powered generator support in stand-alone operation in the context of a programme of the CEC (DG XVII), the aim is to demonstrate the operation of an autonomous system based on regenerative energy sources. The installation consists of a photovoltaic generator with 1.48 kWpH, a storage battery with a rated capacity of 28.8 kWh, an inverter with 1.6 kW and a back-up gas-powered generator with 12 kVA. The most important characteristic of this PV system is the dimensioning for the six months of summer and the back-up operation with the supplementary generator during the six months of winter. The division of the domestic electric circuits into a 24 V direct current circuit for the lighting and a 200 V alternating circuit for machines and appliances had the aim of avoiding inefficient partial load operation.
