BTS sites are subject to constant cost pressure. Operational cost and especially Diesel consumption form ever increasing cost components. Here, photovoltaics (PV) is an effective measure to cut down operational cost and emissions for hybrid BTS sites. Often PV is integrated in a non-optimal way opening up room for improvements to the operational management. Three different advanced PV-hybrid operational management features are identified, developed and discussed. It can be shown that that… CONTINUE READING
