dc.description.abstract The amount of power required to operate the telecom network is getting much higher depending on the size of the system deployed at the base stations. This may exceed a couple of kilowatts, occurring a high electrical and diesel cost. Considering the high operational and environmental cost of diesel generators and back-up batteries, major issues of power supplies such as cost effectiveness, energy efficiency etc. need to be addressed in optimum manner. This report is a comprehensive effort to identify the optimum way of providing grid power and the backup power for the telecom base stations. A user simulation model is proposed which result in the optimum power integration model with the best combination of battery backup, solar PV and diesel generator, that determines the optimal capital and operational cost for an on-grid site to give load, type and environmental factors. The techno economical feasibility is done for 6 nos of configurations and yields detailed graphical dashboard which enables the user to correlate the state of load, the power source combination and their conditions. en_US
