Keywords: DC Micro Grid, Load Pattern, Renewable Energy



Abstract: This paper is mainly addressing the design and analysis of a DC micro grid power system in a remote area in Bangladesh. Generation of electricity is not enough to serve its demand. Majority of the islands and the rustic communities are deprived from electricity and most of them are relying on some fossil fuels for searching their required energy. The cost of fuels is high and for this reason the cost of expected generating power is increased tremendously in rustic areas. By burning fossil fuels, increasing carbon dioxide (CO2) is rocketed into the atmosphere. It has raised national and international concern and efforts to develop alternative renewable sources of primary energy such as solar, biomass, wind, hydro and other green power technologies are being used to provide sustainable, affordable and comfortable sources of energy. In Bangladesh Solar Home System (SHS) has reached a great number of installations by the effective programs run by Infrastructure Development Company Limited (IDCOL) which has been started about 12 years ago. SHS is popular when it replaces any lamp run by kerosene or wax. However, demand of customer increases day by day and old customers as well as new customers is searching a bigger power source than as in SHS. As a result it cannot meet the increased demand of customers with an affordable price. This paper also aimed to mention how to serve the increased demand of a customer with an affordable price by means of DC micro grid system.
