Abstract

Grid connection is often not available at remote locations. As a result, diesel generators are commonly used in Indian remote military bases to generate electricity locally. Transportation of diesel to these remote locations is often difficult and expensive task. Communication and surveillance equipments along with border fences and illumination need reliable electricity supply. Any disruption in diesel supply can severely impact the operation of the military base. Fuel transportation routes are often cut off during extreme weather conditions. In addition, diesel generators are prone to failure and cause significant air pollutions. Renewable energy sources are often available at these remote locations. These renewable energy sources can be used to partially substitute the diesel-based generation. In this paper, hybrid microgrids consisting of both renewable and diesel generators are proposed for remote military bases. Use of local renewable sources reduces the dependence on external diesel supply. In addition, the consumption of diesel is reduced due to the use of renewable energy sources. Detailed cost benefit analysis has been done to show the effectiveness of the hybrid microgrid. It is shown that this hybrid microgrid can be a possible solution for reduction of diesel consumption in remote military bases of India.
