  1. 1. To be or not to be: On system dynamics and the viability of mini-grids in rural electrification

    Author : Elias Hartvigsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; system dynamics; rural electrification; reliability; mini-grids; complexity; load assessment;

    Abstract : One to two billion people are expected to receive electricity access in developing countries in the coming decades. Many of these people will live in rural areas in developing countries where the existing grid will not be able to reach. These people will therefore rely on off-grid technologies to gain electricity access. READ MORE

  2. 2. Simulation of Economical Performance of Isolated Rural Mini-Grids

    Author : Al-Mas Sendegeya; Lennart Söder; Eriabu Lugujjo; Mikael Amelin; Alex Kyaruzi; KTH; []
    Keywords : Price sensitivity; system operators; Monte Carlo simulation;

    Abstract : Prior knowledge about the possible characteristics of demand and supply is vital in the planning and operation of economically sustainable isolated rural power systems. System modelling and simulation is one of the tools that can be used in planning and assessing the performance of these systems. READ MORE

  3. 3. Electrification of rural Mozambique : Sustainable energy solutions

    Author : Miguel Meque Uamusse; Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära; []
    Keywords : Renewable energy; hydropower potential; Rural electrification; mini-grid; biomass; climate change effects;

    Abstract : The UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 7 states that access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy should be provided for all by 2030. The effects on socioeconomic development by access to safe, affordable, and clean electricity stands out as educational benefits, income improvement, and health progress. READ MORE

  4. 4. Planning Models for Single Wire Earth Return Power Distribution Networks

    Author : Geofrey Bakkabulindi; Lennart Söder; Mikael Amelin; Peiyuan Chen; KTH; []
    Keywords : Rural electrification; power distribution planning; Single Wire Earth Return; distribution power flow; power system modeling; SRA - Energy; SRA - Energi;

    Abstract : The high cost of grid extension to rural areas, often characterized by scattered communities with low load densities, requires the use of low cost electrification technologies to ensure economic viability. In Single Wire Earth Return (SWER) power distribution networks, the earth itself forms the current return path of the single phase system leading to significant cost savings on conductors, poles and poletop hardware compared to conventional systems.

  5. 5. Advancing the state of geospatial electrification modelling: New data, methods, applications, insight and electrification investment outlooks

    Author : Alexandros Korkovelos; Viktoria Martin; Mark I. Howells; Francesco Fuso Nerini; Hans-Holger Rogner; Ed Brown; KTH; []

    Abstract :  I skrivande stund uppskattas 860 miljoner människor globalt sakna tillgång till el. Målet att uppnå universal tillgång till el under det kommande decenniet – i enlighet med mål 7 av de globala målen för hållbar utveckling (SDG 7) – indikerar att många länder snart kommer att behöva införa riktlinjer, handlingsplaner och policys för att påskynda elektrifieringstakten.
