Abstract

The rising of utilization of diesel generators in remote areas of archipelago lead to the increase of CO2 emission on earth. Therefore it is necessary to use renewable energy to reduce the emission. The role of hybrid power generation of marine currents (MC), photovoltaics (PV) and diesel is needed to control power and reduce CO2 emission. This paper aims to analyze the cost of emission abatement by operating the marine current turbin/photovoltaic/diesel generator system. To determine the amount of energy reduction in hybrid usage, it is necessary to know the load, the potential of marine currents and solar radiation to generate electricity and the regulation of the use of diesel generators. Using linear equations, the amount of emission abatement is obtained. The total load requirement (peak load) is 132.24 kW, the power from the marine current is 35 kW while the power from the photovoltaic is 55 kW, the rest is supplied by the diesel generator. There are three types of rated diesel power generators used are 20 kW, 40 kW and 100 kW. The emission generated when the total load requirement of the three generator operations is 36.79 kgCO2/h, whereas if using MC/PV/Diesel hybrid system is 10.98 kgCO2/h or the average daily emission reduction percentage is 70.16%. While the cost of emission reduction from MC/PV/Diesel hybrid system is 8.6 US/day. This suggests that MC/PV/Diesel hybrid energy generation can be applied to meet load requirements and reduce CO2 emissions.
