Preparing an Existing Diesel Power Plant for a Wind Hybrid Retrofit: Lessons Learned in the Wales, Alaska, Wind-Diesel Hybrid Power Project

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This paper describes the wind-diesel hybrid power project, a technology demonstration project conducted by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Kotzebue Electric Association, the Alaska Village Electric Cooperative and the Alaska Energy Authority in Wales, Alaska. It discusses each of the relevant plant design considerations in detail, in hopes that system integrators and project planners that read the report will realize the importance of giving proper attention to diesel plant preparation (or replacement), and future wind-diesel systems will be installed and commissioned more quickly and cost effectively.
