The Thermodynamic analysis of a Solar-Wind Hybrid System in Lebanon- A case study in Deir Ammar El Baddawi
Lebanon is a country dependant on mostly fossil fuels. To the author’s knowledge there is no installed renewable energy systems connected to the grid. The situated region of Lebanon is in the Middle-East. Due to this reason the country is affected in terms of political issues and electricity shortages. The place of this power plant was chosen due to the presence of enough land space plus its location which is near the power station for distribution.
Therefore, the aim of this study is to present an idea about an alternative solution to minimize this shortage especially taking into consideration that Lebanon has the potential to generate electricity via renewable energy. The analysis was carried out using MATLAB Simulink software. The energy analysis of the system was conducted. The results obtained showed the advantage of using such a system in Lebanon. This study shows that adding more capacity to the grid by connecting a hybrid system will help Lebanon overcome its energy situation.
