  • This paper presents a deterministic approach for sizing a solar photovoltaic (PV) and energy storage system (ESS) with anaerobic digestion (AD) biogas power plant (BPP) to meet a proportional scaled-down demand of the national load in Kenya, Africa. The aim is to achieve a minimal levelized cost of energy (LCOE) for the system while minimizing the energy imbalance between generation and demand due to AD generator constraint and solar resource. This system also aims to maximize the sizing of PV… CONTINUE READING
