Renewable electricity production with some wasted second-life components

Abstract : Renewable energy systems are playing an important role to reduce CO2 emission and provide electricity for daily use in rural areas. But brand new components with up-to-date technology could be far too expensive for many potential users (rural communities in many developing countries. As a consequence, turning waste components into energy production systems could be a good opportunity to reach these two goals simultaneously. In this paper, a disposal induction motor, a car battery and an Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) are combined together in order to generate electrical energy from pico-hydro power. The control of the RMS output voltage and frequency is presented with a comprehensive state-space model, simulation and experimental validation results are provided.
