The pride of renewable power plants to participate in electricity production at peak hours of the hard days

The pride of renewable power plants to participate in electricity production at peak hours of the hard days

In the difficult conditions that the power industry is facing, the energy storage capacity from the electricity produced power plants will reach zero, and the dedicated employees of the power industry as well as the Ministry of Energy are seeking to supply the power of the grid with maximum effort. During peak hours, renewable power plants have a maximum production rate capacity compared to the conventional power plants. For instance, at one of the peak hours this year (at 4 pm on 2nd July 2018) when the peak load of the national grid reached 56 GW, the electric generation of the power plants is as follows:

It means that during the peak hours of the summer, there is a scarcity in electricity production from the fossil fuel power plants due to the heat of the air temperature and water deficits, and renewable power plants with a maximum capacity are connected to the national grid. For example, Ghadir 10 MW solar power plant in Jarghouyeh of Isfahan is generating electricity of nearly 8 MWh during peak hours. Also, MAPNA wind power plant in Kahak region with synchronization and adaptation of the region’s wind regime with the power consumption load curve, have a maximum capacity factor of nearly 88% in the national grid. It is worth mentioning that it is related to Iran’s climate change condition that causes compatibility of these power plants to meet Iran’s maximum production hours and consumption which is a technical and logical reason to development of the renewable power plants in the forthcoming policies of the Ministry of Energy.
