A GENERAL AND SYSTEMATIC PROCEDURE FOR THE TECHNICAL/ECONOMIC/SOCIO-ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT OF RESIDENTIAL STAND ALONE AUTONOMOUS PV SYSTEMS: APPLICATION TO A SMALL-SCALE RSAAPS INSTALLED IN THE CITY OF XANTHI/THRACE, GREECE

Sotirios B. Skretas - Demetrios P. Papadopoulos

   The present paper describes a general and systematic procedure (for the purpose of optimum sizing; technical, economic and socio-environmental assessment; and simulation of the system operation) suitable for a complete study (in the planning stage or after system installation) of any residential stand alone (non grid-connected), autonomous (completely independent of other power sources) PV system (RSAAPS). A case study of a real small-scale RSAAPS operating in the city of Xanthi/Greece is assessed thoroughly and the suitability of the proposed procedure is realized and validated.

Keywords: RSAAPS; optimum sizing; technical analysis; economic/socio-environmental analysis; operation simulation; practical
