HOMER Grid 1.5

HOMER Logo


The Electrical tab in the Simulation Results window shows details about the annual production and consumption of electrical energy by the system.

Production

The Production table contains varying information depending on the components in the system you selected. It lists the total annual energy output of each electrical energy-producing component of the power system, plus the total electrical production.

Consumption

The Consumption table contains varying information depending on the components in the system you selected. It lists the total amount of electrical energy that went to serve each of the system's electrical loads. The following values appear in this table when applicable.

Variable

Description

AC Primary Load Served

The amount of energy that went towards serving the AC primary load(s)

Electrolyzer Load Served

The amount of electrical energy consumed by the electrolyzer

Grid Sales

The total amount of electricity sold to the grid during the year

Total Load Served

The total amount of electrical load served during the year

Note: The total production can exceed the sum of the total consumption and the excess electricity because of losses in the storage and converter.

Excess Electricity

The following table defines the values in the first Quantity table.

Variable

Description

Excess Electricity

The total amount of excess electricity that occurred during the year, as well as the excess electricity fraction expressed as a percentage of the total electrical production

Other Outputs

The following table describes the variables in the second Quantity table.

Variable

Description

Renewable Fraction

The renewable fraction is the fraction of the energy delivered to the load that originated from renewable power sources

Maximum Renewable Penetration

The maximum value of the renewable penetration that occurs over the year
