LAUTECH Journal of Engineering and Technology http://laujet.com/index.php/laujet <p>LAUTECH Journal of Engineering and Technology (LAUJET) is a leading internationally referred journal in the fields of science, engineering and technology. It is a journal founded by academicians, educationists with substantive experience in industry. The journal is an online open access journal with a yearly print version of its volumes/issues made available to interested persons/institutions. The basic aim of the journal is to promote innovative ideas in fields relating to the sciences, engineering and technology. The basic notion of having a wide area of focus is to encourage multidisciplinary research efforts and seamless integration of diverse ideas that might be gleaned from the papers published in the journal.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Faculty of Engineering and Technology, Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, Nigeria en-US LAUTECH Journal of Engineering and Technology 1597-0000 SENSITIVITY ANALYSIS OF HYBRIDIZED WIND/PV ENERGY SYSTEM FOR POWERING TELECOMMUNICATION MAST IN LAGOS SOUTH-WEST NIGERIA http://laujet.com/index.php/laujet/article/view/496 <p><strong><em>Power delivery micro-grid of hybridized wind and solar system installations keep growing worldwide. There is a great economic advantage in the use of cleaner renewable energy for power generation in the telecommunication industries, especially in remote areas. This studyanalyses the effect of three wind speed fluctuationsor levels on a hybridizedwind energy system’s electricity production for a typical three (3) BTS telecommunication mast using </em></strong><strong><em>Hybrid Optimization Model for Energy Resources</em></strong><strong><em> (HOMER)PRO software in Lagos south-western Nigeria as a case study. The economic implication of energy at the different wind speed levels investigated was also derived. From the obtained results, a wind speed of 4, 4.22, and 5 m/s gave an annual electric production of 39,950, 39,050, and 39,250 kWh and energy cost of 195, 192, and ₦175, respectively. This result is useful for the techno-economic operation of hybridized wind/solar system powered by three (3) BTS telecommunication masts.</em></strong></p> O. Olaogun A. A. Lawal A. J. Adeyi O.
