Impact of PV-CSP Intergrated System for Power Generation

Garima Singh, Bharat Raj Singh


Solar and Wind energy is available in plenty in the country like India.Solar
power is the conversion of sunlight into electricity, either directly using
photovoltaic (PV), or indirectly using concentrated solar power (CSP). Wind
is the indirect form of solar energy and is always being replenished by the
sun. Wind energy is the kinetic energy of air in motion also called
wind.Technical potential of onshore wind energy is large. CSP technology
with thermal storage having potential to replace the conventional thermal
power plant.Advantage of CSP technology is that thermal storage technology
is easily integrated with the CSP technology in compare with the photovoltaic
and wind power technology. When the PV is hybridized with Wind it does not
meet the satisfactory performance. PV and Wind power generation technologies
not suitable at grid level due to intermittency in the availability of sun and
wind. Hybridization of PV with CSP is the option to sole the intermittency
problem and provide the energy at grid level. The research status of PV-CSP
hybrid technology for its performance is summarized from the study made in
this paper to provide a current global scenario, but it is observed that for
economic and efficient power generation with the effective proportions of
integrated PV-CSP hybrid systems that are yet to be researched.
