Abstract 

This dataset was used for the capacity planing of ahybrid solar PV-small hydro power plant located in Buseruka, Hoima District in Uganda. The data consitss of four files namely:

 

1. 20240601_GenerationStatisticsQ1_2024-Kabalega-Hydromax: Represents power generation statistics from ERA for Kabalega/HYdromax HPP.

2. Hydrology from Buseruka HPP - 2015-2022: Represents the hydrology or river flow data in cumecs for the period 2015 to 2022 as provided by the plant operators.

3. R.Wambabya_flow in cumecs-1970 to 1979: Contains gauged data for River Wambabya as obtained from Directorate of Water Resources Development - Uganda

4. SG-97236-2304-4-1_TMY_P50-Solar Irradiance Data - 1994 to 2022: Represents Hourly Solar irradiance for Buseruka for the period 1994 to 2022 as obtained from SolarGIS.

 

The above raw data was used in the stochastic optimization framework for the capacity Planning of the hydridised pant whilst minimising the levelised cost of electricity geenrated from the plant.

Instructions: 

There are four files:

1. 20240601_GenerationStatisticsQ1_2024-Kabalega-Hydromax: Represents power generation statistics from ERA for Kabalega/HYdromax HPP.

2. Hydrology from Buseruka HPP - 2015-2022: Represents the hydrology or river flow data in cumecs for the period 2015 to 2022 as provided by the plant operators.

3. R.Wambabya_flow in cumecs-1970 to 1979: Contains gauged data for River Wambabya as obtained from Directorate of Water Resources Development - Uganda

4. SG-97236-2304-4-1_TMY_P50-Solar Irradiance Data - 1994 to 2022: Represents Hourly Solar irradiance for Buseruka for the period 1994 to 2022 as obtained from SolarGIS.
