Impact and analysis of site characteristics and locationfor a hybridutility scalesolar projectin the Philippines using energy storage systems technologies
Site identification is vital in installation of Utility scale Solar PV project. Strict requirement of good solar irradiation that factors site characteristics and selection for a utility-scale photovoltaic (PV) solar farm with hybrid storage system are considered critical issue in Solar PV microgrid installations and its direct impact on the power performance, capacity generation, environmental adaptability and selection of modules and batteries. The site selection of a 24-hour megawatt-scale solar-PV adapting a Hybrid energy storage system is a complex process that requires considerable technical analysis. Thru this presentation, the site location analysis ofa solar PV project with hybrid energy storage system will be presented which depends on factors: the choice of storage technology, rated capacity, power converter topology, energy management and the control strategy which should be dealt with. Testing of energy storage configuration suitable for decentralized PV has been analyzed involving power-to-heat battery, power-to-heat battery/hydrogen, supercap/battery and battery /battery. The presentation will give an overview of the innovative results of the analysis considering the estimated energy yield and site-specific conditions.

Sustainable Development in Low Carbon, Cleaner and Greener Energies and the Environment
The increased availability of reliable and efficient energy services stimulates new development alternatives. This article discusses the potential for such integrated systems in the stationary and portable power market in response to the critical need for a cleaner energy technology. Throughout the theme several issues relating to renewable energies, environment, and sustainable development are examined from both current and future perspectives. It is concluded that green energies like wind, solar, groundsource heat pumps, and biomass must be promoted, implemented, and demonstrated from the economic and/or environmental point view. Biogas from biomass appears to have potential as an alternative energy source, which is potentially rich in biomass resources. This is an overview of some salient points and perspectives of biogas technology. The current literature is reviewed regarding the ecological, social, cultural and economic impacts of biogas technology. This article gives an overview of present and future use of biomass as an industrial feedstock for production of fuels, chemicals and other materials. However, to be truly competitive in an open market situation, higher value products are required. Results suggest that biogas technology must be encouraged, promoted, invested, implemented, and demonstrated, but especially in remote rural areas.

New Intelligent Neural Network Program Developed Based on Revolutionary Predictive Control for a System Tracking
To increase the power output of a PV module or a field of PV modules, an electronic controller is incorporated between the PV generator and the load, whose role and main objective is the continuous monitoring of the maximum power point of the PV generator commonly known as MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) and this in general per action on a DC-DC conversion device.
The regulation and control techniques provide the impedance matching function, transferring to the load the maximum electrical power output from the PV generator in any the temperature and sunshine conditions.
The development of a revolutionary method based on neural algorithms for the prediction of an instantaneous command is the main objective in our work.
Indeed, the paper presents a new control strategy for the photovoltaic PV, it is a command based on Neuronal Network technique. It is the first time that this technique has been introduced, and proposed by the authors in synthesizing control laws for the converters of electronic power.
The new technical algorithm based on Neural Networks, is designed to be more robust in performance with respect to tracking speed and precision.
Moreover, this new successful technical research, provides a robust neural structure compared to the noisy empirical data used for the prediction of the command. Consequently a smooth control signal
without oscillation, targeting exactly the expected optimal control with an independent control of the sampling frequency of the system.
This study, which is followed by a simulation, has enabled us to consolidate the idea that the new Neural Network controller when compared to their classical counterparts, and obtains the best performances concerning the speed of tracking and precision.
The robustness of the networks of neurons opposite the noise of measurements, like, the smoothness of the power signal of PV system generated during the application of the neuronal order, will qualify this command as a practical alternative to the disadvantages recorded on the levels of the classical methods.
