Abstract
Only 15% of rural population in Sub-Saharan Africa has access to electricity. The focus in this study is on design and techno-economic analysis of low voltage (LV) distribution network configuration relying on PV- and energy-storage-based off-grid solutions for African rural conditions. In the paper, three different grid design approaches are studied for three real existing Namibian villages. As a result, the most economically and technically feasible and cost effective off-grid system configurations are defined case by case.
