The Idea of Feeding a Rural Area in Comoros with a Micro-Grid System with Renewable Energy Source with Hydrogen Storages

Abstract : To solve the load shedding problem in the Comoros in a targeted rural area (Mbeni in the island of Ngazidja), I recommend the micro -grid system based on a renewable energy source with hydrogen storage. It has been almost two decades since the power generation company has been able to feed a large part of the Comorian population. This is due to the obsolescence of the production equipment of the electricity company, and the fact that the cost of the raw material (diesel) is very high compared to the cost of living of the Comorian population. The electricity company is struggling to cope with the increase in demand, which is about 5.1% per year. This increase in demand and the obsolescence of the equipment cause many load shedding. To combat this appalling plague, a feasibility study of the microgird system based on a renewable energy source with hydrogen storage seems entirely conceivable. In this article, solutions for electrifying rural areas in Comoros were designed and analyzed using Hybrid Renewable Energy Optimization (HOMER) with hydrogen storage. This system consists of: a photovoltaic generator, a wind turbine, an electrolyser, a fuel cell, a storage tank in the form of hydrogen.
