  • Modelling the Effects of Climate Change on Hydroelectric Power in Dokan, Iraq

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    Due to shift in the average patterns of weather, climate change became one of the significant development challenges. Hydropower is currently being utilized in more than 150 countries, including 11,000 stations with 27,000 generating units. Increasing attention has been paid to hydropower generation in recent years, because it is renewable energy. Temperature and precipitation effects from global climate change could alter future hydrologic conditions in Iraq and, as a result, future hydropower generation. This is also valid for the Middle East and Iraq.

  • Optimization Investigation of a Stand-Alone Hybrid Energy System Design in Kirkuk Technical College

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    In this paper a methodology has been developed for optimum planning of hybrid PV, Wind and diesel generator system with some battery backup in Kirkuk Technical College in Iraq. The local solar radiation, wind data and components database from different manufactures are analyzed and simulated in HOMER model to assess the technical and economic viability of the integrated system. Performance of each component was evaluated and sensitivity analysis was performed to optimize the system at different conditions.

  • Cost optimization of hybrid stand-alone power system for cooled store in Kirkuk

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    However, the design, control, and optimization of the hybrid systems are usually very complex tasks; the stand-alone hybrid solar–diesel power generation system is recognized generally more suitable than systems that only have one energy source for supply of electricity to off-grid applications. A proposed PV system has been designed and optimized using HOMER software computer model to supply a potato cooled store in Kirkuk city in Iraq.

  • Using Concentrated Solar Power Techniques to Generate Electric Power in Iraq, a Review on Present Status and Future Directions

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    Present reserves of oil and natural gas can only cover consumption at this rate for the next 50 years in the case of oil, and for the next 70 years in the case of natural gas. Therefore, one of the fundamental priorities for a country such as Iraq is to use several renewable energies (RE) sources and environmentally friendly energy conversion technologies. Iraq is endowed with large reserves of energy sources, mainly hydrocarbons and a considerable potential for the utilization of RE sources especially with respect to solar energy.

  • DESIGN HYBRID MICROPOWER SYSTEM IN MISTAH VILLAGE USING HOMER MODEL

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    This paper presents a case study of a remote village dependent on agriculture currently grid connected. The remote village consists of 10 houses. The latitude and longitude of the study area are 35° 20´ N and 43° 15´ E respectively. The proposed model consists of photovoltaic (PV) array, wind energy subsystem, micro hydro, diesel generator and battery storage sub-system. The aim of this paper is to present optimization of distributed energy resources DERs includes distribution generation with battery backup and to provide a reliable, continuous,

  • Kirkuk municipal waste to electrical energy

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    Municipal solid waste (MSW) in Kirkuk city in the north of Iraq poses a serious problem having adverse effects on environment and health of the citizens. Both quantity and volume of MSW have continued to increase with the rapid growth of city population. The population of Kirkuk city, on average, has increased by 3% per annum over the past two decades. The population of Kirkuk city is predicted to increase from 1,050,000 in 2008 to 1,445,556 in 2020. The generation of waste is expected to grow in the future with the rise of city population.
