Definition

Bundling of Wind & Solar power generating units for maximum power output

System utilizing only solar electric energy as main source of energy

System utilizing only wind electric energy as main source of energy

* Power Generation time

Round the clock power generation and throughout the year as wind and solar are complementary in nature.

Power generation only during daytime, maximum generation between 11 am to 4 pm on sunny days

Maximum generation during late night hours and early morning hours. Major generation during windy seasons of May to September

* Variability

Mitigates daily and seasonal fluctuations of standalone wind and solar systems by leveraging their complementary nature

Lower power generation in shorter days and cloudy weather (especially during rainy season)

High power generation during rainy season when even electricity demand is low

* % Requirement met

Fulfils 75%-80% of energy requirements even with TOD based adjustment restrictions

With TOD restrictions on wheeling and banking adjustment, only 50-55% of energy can be mitigated

Depending on wind patterns and banking period restrictions, can only fulfil about 50%-55% of energy requirements

* Energy Settlement

Fulfils up to 60% of energy requirements even with 15 mins energy settlement restrictions

Cannot fulfil more than 20%-30% of energy requirements with 15 min energy settlement restrictions

Cannot fulfil more than 20%-30% of energy requirements with 15 min energy settlement restrictions

* Generation Curve

It can be designed for 24x7 round the clock generation and at just the right amount that matches Prosumers base load generation curve throughout the year

Generation curve closely depends or resembles on time of day and time of the year concept.

* Yearly units generated

5 MW WSH ~ 22 million units

5 MW Solar ~ 7. 8 million units

5 MW Wind ~ 16.2 million units

* Capacity Utilization factor

45% to 50%

~16% to 18%

~30% to 35%

* Savings potential

Highest

Medium, highly dependent on state regulations regarding wheeling and banking

Medium, highly dependent on state regulations regarding wheeling and banking

* Operation & Maintenance (O&M)

More economical and easier to maintain due to common equipment’s and systems used of Solar & Wind at the same location.

Independent solar plant equipment’s and systems located at remote location

Independent wind farm equipment’s and systems located at remote location

* Utilization of Common Resources

Savings in project cost comes due to common usage of resources and infrastructure. Like optimisation of land, power evacuation, infra operation, components, and manpower during O&M activities.
