MetadataShow full item record
This article describes the development of the RenPower (Renewable Power) software for sizing of renewable energy microgrids able to be used in academic teaching. RenPower was implemented using the graphic programming language LabVIEWTM, and being freely used, allows students, teachers and researchers to select a geographical location anywhere in the world, define a user's monthly energy demand and obtain the annual photovoltaic and wind energy to meet the needs. The software also allows to calculate the amount of batteries to store the energy of the microgrid, as well as the power of the inverter for connection to the electrical network. The sizing results obtained with the software are identical to those obtained by theoretical calculations. RenPower was developed by the following universities: Universidad de Bogotá Jorge Tadeo Lozano (Colombia), Northwestern Polytechnical University (China), The University of Oklahoma (USA), Universitat Politécnica de Valencia (Spain), Universidad Nacional de Colombia (Colombia) and Universidad Tecnológica del Chocó (Colombia).
