dc.description.abstractEste trabajo presenta un modelo para la selección, diseño, análisis de viabilidad y análisis económico de sistemas de energía renovable para acueductos comunitarios en Puerto Rico utilizando paneles fotovoltáicos y aerogeneradores con un énfasis en los deseos y necesidades de la comunidad a la cual se le aplicará el modelo. Se creó un procedimiento para la selección y diseño de los varios componentes de los sistemas de energía renovable y se utilizó el acueducto comunitario en Humatas para crear el prototipo donde se determinó que un arreglo de paneles solares con una capacidad generatriz de 12.92kW sería el sistema más viable al promedio del costo de energía sobrepasar los $0.28/kW por los próximos 25 años para vientos de 6 metros por segundo o menos.
dc.description.abstractThis report presents the research effort for developing a model for the selection, design, feasibility analysis, and economic analysis of renewable energy systems for communal aqueducts in Puerto Rico using photovoltaic panels and wind turbines with an emphasis in the needs and desires of the community to which the model will be applied. A procedure was created for the selction and design of various components of the renewable energy systems and the free computer program HOMERTM was used to do the feasibility and economic analysis. The model was develpoed and the comunal aqueduct in Humatas, Moca was used as a case study to create the prototype where it was determined that a solar array with a generating capacity of 12.92kW would be the most viable solution if the average cost of energy surpasses $0.28/kW for the next 25 years for winds less tan 6 meters per second.
