This paper presents a simulation model for Biomass-Photovoltaic Hybrid system. The energy conversion equations describing the total power generated by system have been presented. A numerical model based upon the aforementioned conservation equations was developed, coded and results were presented and analyzed. The model is intended to be used as an optimization, design and analysis tool for typical gas turbine Biomass-CHP hybrid systems. The results predicted by the proposed model compared fairly with data under various biomass loading conditions.
This study contributes to the existing literature of photovoltaic, biomass and district heating hybrid systems. This study uses a new approach in modeling the hybrid system by establishing the conservation and conversion equations, integrating, coding and solving them to obtain the dynamic behavior of the hybrid system.
