Photo Voltaic Project:Cascada Mall (Lebanon) solar PV modelling using Helioscope

  1. 1. Cascada Mall PV Stand Alone modelling by Helioscope® Prepared by: Bilal Abu Ghouche Mohamad Abdel Wahab Tarek Kamar Supervised by: Dr. Tarek Nasab Date: 04-01-2018
  2. 2. Outlines • Problem statement • Project Objectives • Cascada Mall Overview • Helioscope modelling methodology • Results • Conclusions • Questions and Discussions 2
  3. 3. • Solar Site designing software helps engineers to map out sites. • Manage complicate design limitations, optimize layouts, and provide Bill of Materials. • They reduce planning, decrease quotation time. • Optimize sites for improved Return on Investment ROI • These solutions help to streamline the commissioning process and eliminate any redundancies. 3 A. Problem statement
  4. 4. Why should we use Helioscope software instead of PVSOL,Retscreen,…… ?????? 4 A. Problem statement
  5. 5. • Implement a simple PV model using Helioscope® software. • To predict the operation. • The efficiency. • The annual and monthly electrical production of a proposed standalone PV system located at the rooftop of the Cascada Mall located in Taanayel area in Bekaa. 5 B.Project Objectives
  6. 6. Cascada Mall is situated on a 220,000 𝒎 𝟐 piece of land in the heart of the Bekaa valley in Taanayel • Featuring several synergistic hubs. • The shopping center, Arcadia Wedding Venue. • Medical center, Amphitheater, Hotel and the Cascada Park 6 C. Cascada Mall overview

  8. 8. 8 D. Helioscope project methodology Create the mechanical layout: Azimuth angle = 55° Tilt angle = 45° Orientation : landscape Row spacing = 2 Frame size = 2
  9. 9. 9 D. Helioscope project methodology Generating a keep out zone We had defined setback distance for buffer around the perimeter of Keep out object for future maintenances ability
  10. 10. 10 D. Helioscope project methodology Creating the electrical layout: We have chosen 45 inverters which are produced by ABB® which each one has the electrical specifications : Max power = 30 kw Max MPPT voltage = 800 V

  16. 16. 16 E. Results: • The electricity cost in ($/Kwh) = 𝐶𝑜𝑠𝑡 (𝑆𝑦𝑠𝑡𝑒𝑚 + 𝑂&𝑀) (𝑌𝑖𝑒𝑙𝑑 × 𝐼𝑛𝑠𝑡𝑎𝑙𝑙𝑒𝑑 𝑝𝑜𝑤𝑒𝑟 × 𝑃𝑎𝑦𝑏𝑎𝑐𝑘 𝑝𝑒𝑟𝑖𝑜𝑑) . • The Payback period is assumed to be 30 years. The annual yields of the module is 783.8kWh/ (year × kWp). • The cost of the system excluding the operation & maintenance cost is $ 5,076,177.33 /136.31 KWp =37,240$/kWp. • The estimated electricity cost is 1.584 $/Kwh.
  17. 17. 17 F. Conclusions: • Helioscope is valid as an advanced solar design software • Helioscope is valid as an advanced solar design software • Improve the quality of the standalone PV systems modeling • saving the time of engineers for doing heavy research on the electrical components and the recommended mechanical assumptions • we recommend this software to be used by electrical consultants engineers, PV contractors and students • It is a powerful tool for reliable, efficient, and detailed solar design.
