Component Capital Cost and Distribution network Cost
In designing a mini-grid system, we need to build a distribution network in order to reach the customers. For instance if the case of a mini-grid based solar PV with battery bank. I would like to know where should we put the cost of the network built.
Do HOMER consider such cost in his analysis?
if Yes how this could be distributed over all the components Capital cost?
In HOMER, under Project -> Economics, you can set a fixed system capital cost. This could include the distribution network cost.
