Abstract

This paper proposes a mobile power for the Sectional Compact Emergency Shelter (SCES), which is used for the field hospitals, disaster response offices, and so on under the great disaster. The proposed mobile power consists of the fuel cells (FCs), photovoltaic cells (PVs) and lead-acid batteries. All of the power resources and necessary electrical equipments are constructed in a container car. Therefore, the constructed mobile power is easily moveable and constructive with the SCESs. The FCs can supply power continuously. The PVs are installed on the roof of SCES. The generated power from the PVs is fluctuated by weather conditions. Thus, the lead-acid batteries are installed for levering the difference between the generated power and consumed power in the SCES. The basic principle of the proposed ubiquitous power is discussed in detail, then confirmed by digital computer simulation using PLECS software. The simulation results demonstrate that the ubiquitous power can supply the power to the SCES continuously in winter in Japan. It is concluded that the proposed ubiquitous power is the good solution for power supply of SCES under the great disaster with the SCES.
