DC Nano-grids: a low cost PV based solution for livelihood enhancement in rural Bangladesh
conference contributionposted on 2015-11-06, 16:00 authored by M. Rezwan Khan, Ed BrownEd Brown
A concept paper, along with cost estimations, is presented proposing the development of very small sized solar PV grids, which we have termed nano-grids. These grids allow the incorporation of developmental activities such as irrigation, along with household usage of electricity. It is argued that the developmental activity should be chosen in such a way that it matches with the seasonal variation in insolation and load demand to keep the energy cost to a minimum.
