In Senegal EnDev disseminates PV-diesel hybrid mini-grids for the electrification of villages with more than 500 inhabitants.
The systems consist of:
- a PV array with a capacity of 5.1 kWpconsisting of 30 polycrystalline PV modules with a capacity of 170 Wpeach
- a battery bank consisting of 24 elements of 2 V of lead-acid tubular plate batteries; element capacity is 800 Ah C10 leading to a bank capacity of 38,4 kWh
- a monophase generator of 10 kVA linked to the PV system
- a 5000 VA inverter
- 220 Volts low voltage three phase AC distribution through a mini-grid
The 16 systems have a total PV capacity of 81.6 kWp and can generate 106.9 MWh per year. Electricity generation by the diesel generator is not included in this calculation.
