Design of Renewable Energy System for a Mobile Hospital in Libya

Emadeddin A. A. Hussein and M. T. Iqbal
Abstract—Renewable Energy Systems are becoming a common choice for small communities around the world. Recently the United Nation efforts to provide field hospitals have decreased in areas that face a high risk in transportation, lack of power and lack of security for field officers. In this paper, a PV hybrid system is being considered for supplying an electric load of a mobile hospital in an area where there is no grid. An optimal configuration has been determined by taking the total cost as the objective. In a world where civil wars are increasing, lack of aids and health resources have a major effect on people lives. A hybrid system is a cost effective solution to power a mobile hospital. Furthermore, it is expected that the proposed system will help communities to provide uninterrupted power for their sites to accommodate a doctor and two nursing staff in remote areas.
