The Antarctica Showa Base has been powered primarily by diesel power generation. However, heavy oil fossil fuel is used for power generation by diesel generators. The Showa base is located in Antarctica, so there is heat demand throughout the year. Therefore, the capacity of transportation of fuel and emissions of carbon dioxide has become an issue. For these reasons, the construction of clean energy systems using renewable energy in order to locally produce energy for local consumption is being planned. In this study, we will design a microgrid based on the introduction of renewable energy (photovoltaics generation and wind power generators) and solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC), which does not emit carbon dioxide during power generation and can use heat cascades. However, there is a risk of a power failure because the power quality decreases with the introduction of renewable energy. In this paper, we clarified the introduction rate of renewable energy with the lowest frequency fluctuation and clarified the introduction limit of renewable energy in summer and winter.
