Multiyear data input and charge ESS from an specific unit generation  


Hello all,

I am currently working on a Project in which I have several time series of PV plant and wind farm productions for several years. The study consists of studying the behaviour of a ESS that will be implemented in PV plant. A load will be served with the combination of PV+ storage and the other generation of wind farm. Currently, I do my study with custom resource in order to study the project and I am doing the same process per year, but it is not exactly what I want to do. Therefore, I have several questions that I want to share with you:

1. Is it posible to enter several custom sources in HOMER? I want to enter a specific custom source for the PV an another for the wind farm, Now, I do the simulations with only one custom source that is the sum of the different generations per year.

2. I was wondering if there is a way of simulating all this years, entering the production for the different years in case of wind farm generators. I know that with multi year option I can simulate the degradation of PV for a specific lifetime poject. But in case of wind farm, I want to enter all the data at a time because, there are no typical years in this case due to the variability of wind speed.

3. Finally, I was wondering if I can simulate the charging of ESS from a specific source. (In my case I was wondering if I can simulate charging my ESS only from my PV plant).


Thank you in advaced.

Best regards,
