Abstract

In this study it is investigated to find the ways to

meet the electric demand (2966 kWh/day) of Inonu University with

off-grid and on-grid optimum wind turbine and photovoltaic panel

and to generate cost-effective electric energy. Homer software was

used for simulations and four different energy system scenarios

were carried out. Equipment consisting of energy system are wind

turbine, PV panel, battery and converter. In the study annual

energy production, annual energy consumption, costs of energy,

total net cost of the systems designed were analyzed. It was seen

that the costs of energy of off-grid wind and PV energy systems

exceeded grid power price and total net costs were quite high

according to the simulations results. The cost of energy of on-grid

wind energy system was lower than grid power price and cost

values of this system were negative sign meaning that incomes

were more than expenses. It was also seen that cost values

increased when wind turbine number and photovoltaic panel

capacity decreased and battery number and converter capacity

increased.
