“Feasibility Analysis of A Grid Integrated Renewable Energy System in Heavy Industries.”

Tanu Rizvi ,Nagendra Tripathi, S.P. Dubey

This paper demonstrates the system architecture together with economic expediency and pollutant emission of a grid integrated system for a heavy industry Bhilai Steel Plant (BSP) located in Bhilai, District Durg, Chhattisgarh (C.G.) state.In today’s scenario alternative/renewable sources utilization is being continuously promoted by government in order to save coal in manufacturing industries. Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency Limited (IREDA) has concrete policy on giving incentives for development of power from various available renewable energy sources such as solar energy which is considered as promising power generating source due to its availability and the topological advantages in local power generation towards industry. The proposed approach will be new in the context of heavy industry in C.G. The state is enriched with the availability of solar radiation as the tropic of cancer line passes through it which is adequate to run the technologies dependent on solar radiation. This paper deals with economic expediency of a heavy industry an emphasizes to analyze the Net Present Cost (NPC) and Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE), and a technical system to obtain minimum quantity of pollutants together with feasibility of a grid integrated system to meet the load requirement of BSP.
