Forcing a conventional base case
I’ve got a question about establishing a specific base case. I’m modelling a site that has multiple diesel gensets, a PV generator, a battery, inverter and controller. I’m using the Homer optimiser and the results look reasonable.
However… I cannot seem to get it to run a ‘base case’ that is based on just the diesels (e.g. no PV or battery). In principle, it should be a non-trivial solution because there are different sizes of diesels and the load fluctuates so the controller could meet the load by just dispatching the diesels.
I’m obviously missing something - anyone have any tips?
