In rural area, many people still lack access to energy necessary for their sustainable livelihoods, development and self-reliance. They legitimately aspire to an energetic security just as a food security. It is well known that the diesel multifunctional platforms (MFP) make an effective contribution to the fight against poverty through the energetic services rendered. However, they contribute to the global warming that's why one to exploring new sources of cleaner energy, free for all. Solar photovoltaic generator is chosen for this substitution. A simulation of different operating modes of the solar MFP is carried out in normal period of sunshine, in autonomy mode operating and in maximum load opérating. A dynamic simulation of the solar MFP is also detailed over the course of a year depending on variations in weather conditions and energy demand.With the help of a power losses diagram, we describe the operating principle and the management of the solar MFP in different operating mode which revel that:p the system performance index is 0.673 with a solar fraction of 97.1%. If the initial investment cost of a solar MFP is more than 3 times that of the diesel MFP, then just the maintenance and the mending cost of a diesel MFP can cover the cost of investing in 3 solar MFP or in 10 diesel MFP in a period of 20 years. Furthermore, a solar MFP will avoid about 7.07 eqt.CO2 of greenhouse gases per year.
