    Abstract: Hybrid photovoltaic-diesel systems are becoming more and more attractive for rural electrification in sub-Saharan Africa region. In this paper, some energy management strategies for a photovoltaic-diesel system without battery storage have been theoretically and experimentally studied. The proposed strategies are respectively based on active power ... Show More

    Abstract: Currently the greatest threat to the power systems reliability and security is the cascading of electric system failures thus causing power blackouts. For quite some time now, the world has been encountering many power blackouts as a result of these cascading failures. The cascading power failure instances pose great risks towards the integrity of ... Show More
  • Determination of the Penetration Level of ASVT Sub-stations on 132kv Line Without Voltage Profile Violation

    Abstract: In developing countries, there are many high voltage transmission lines which transverse villages not supplied with electricity to supply main towns and industrial areas. The conventional substations are too expensive and the power distributor can only set them up if return on investment is assured. Non-conventional (ASVT) sub-stations have been tr... Show More
