Title Power System Implementation and Demonstration at Camp Katuu, Palau.
Publication Date May 2011
Media Count 31p
Personal Author C. Boriack
Abstract DEMONSTRATION GOALS: Camp Katuu Installation -- Increase civil outreach and nation building with Palau Government; Reduce environmental footprint at Camp Katuu; Increase use of alternative energy; Demonstrate the feasibility of using alternative energy in the region; Quantify photovoltaic system performance and capability; Train 249th Engineer Battalion to install photovoltaic systems; Validate camp electrical costs reduction. FUTURE INSTALLATION GOALS: Leverage design aspects for other remote installations (grid frequency and voltage regulation, corrosion, high electricity costs); Next generation to include off-grid operation capability with energy storage. OUTLINE: Demonstration Overview (Site review, Demonstration goals); Development and Design Considerations (Layout, Electrical, Mechanical); Critical Design Aspects (Safety, Component selection, Local electrical utility performance).
