Abstract

Today, safari camps are fully powered using diesel generators due to their remote locations; however, operators are having hard time meeting with demand due to generator's high operating cost. Concerns from government and activists are rising due to pollution and vibrations from diesel generators, which are affecting the desert's demography. Therefore, the objective of this study is to provide camp operators with viable hybrid-system (renewable/variable speed diesel generator) alternatives rather than stand-alone constant speed diesel generator. HOMER software has been utilized to simulate the proposed alternatives.
