Due to intermittent natural energy resources and energy resources seasonal un-balance, a PV-wind hybrid electrical
power supply system was developed for many remote locations where a conventional grid connection is inconvenient or expensive.
While the hybrid system is also applicable with grid connection, owners are allowed to sell excess electricity back to the electric
utility by using net meter.
The proposed set-up consists of a photo-voltaic solar-cell array, a mast mounted wind generator, lead-acid storage
batteries, an inverter unit to convert DC power to AC power, electrical lighting loads and electrical heating loads, several fuse and
junction boxes and associated wiring, and test instruments for measuring voltages, currents, power factors, and harmonic
contamination data throughout the system. The proposed hybrid solar-wind power generating system can be extensively used to
illustrate electrical concepts in hands-on laboratories and demonstrations in the Industrial Technology curriculum.
This paper describes an analysis of local PV-wind hybrid systems for supplying electricity to a private house, farmhouse
or a small company with electrical power depending on the need at the site. The major system components, work principle and
specific working condition are presented in this paper.
