SELECTION OF ENERGY STORAGE UNITS

Electric power systems located far from high-voltage electric mains are mainly supplied by stand-alone power plants with two alternate Diesel-generator sets. The article gives the analysis of feasible reduction in diesel fuel consumption by stand-alone power plants. It is proposed to add self-sufficient power systems with renewable energy sources and hybrid energy storage units. The energy sources may be windmills, solar batteries and hydrogen fuel; the energy storage units—accumulator batteries of electrochemical storage units and supercapacitors KDES. The application of renewable energy sources and hybrid energy storage units will enable cutting down operating costs not less than by 30–60%, capital costs—by 10–40% and cost per 1 kWh of electric energy—by 60–80%.
