Algerian-Korean cooperation: Commissioning of a Mini photovoltaic solar power plant of 28 KW in Adrar

The Director of the Center of Renewable Energies Developpment Center (CDER), Prof. Noureddine YASSAA and the Director of the Research Unit for Renewable Energies in the Saharan Environment of Adrar (URER / MS) affiliated to the (CDER), Pr. Messouad HAMOUDA, accompanied by the General Manager of the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) and the First Secretary of the Korean Embassy in Algeria and in the presence of the leaders of the various sectors of the Wilaya of Adrar, have inaugurated a mini-solar power plant with a capacity of 28 KW installed on the roof of a research division.

This project within the framework of Algerian-Korean cooperation in the field of the scientific research and the technological development. The Republic of Korea through the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) has provided the necessary equipment for the deployment of a Mini solar power plant with photovoltaic technology with a capacity of 28 kW. This mini-power plant installed on the terrace of a research division of the unit, is made up of 3 photovoltaic fields. Each photovoltaic field is composed of 3 PV branches and Each branch is made up of 14 modules. The mini-power plant is made up of 112 monocrystalline modules of the 250W BJ Power brand. The mini-plant has three single-phase converters connected to the 11 kW and SMA Solar Technology network, a pyranometer and a temperature sensor. The electricity produced is injected into the internal network of the unit.

The installation of the mini-power plant was carried out by the researchers and engineers of the unit. The objective of this project is to test the Korean solar technology in extreme climatic conditions and to study the behavior of solar modules with respect to high temperatures and sand dust of the Sahara. The researchers of the unit have demonstrated a strong mastery in the realization and commissioning of mini solar power plants in the network injection or storage mode and are fully available to accompany local authorities, industrialists and private individuals in the implementation of similar projects in the Wilaya of Adrar with the aim of reducing the consumption of fuels used in the production of conventional electricity and get out of dependence on hydrocarbons.

Since the commissioning of this mini-power plant in Adrar’s research unit at the beginning of September 2016, nearly 10 megawatt hours have been produced, which represents a considerable saving in the consumption of electricity of conventional origin.
