Optimal Sizing of a Pv-Wind Hybrid System Using Measured and Generated Database
Renewable energy hybrid systems give a good solution in isolated sites, in the Algerian desert; wind and solar potentials are considerably perfect for a combination in a renewable energy hybrid system to satisfy local village electrical load and minimize the storage requirements, which leads to reduce the cost of the installation. For a good sizing, it is essential to know accurately the solar potential of the installation area also wind potential at the same height where wind electric generators will be placed. In this work, we optimize a completely autonomous PV-wind hybrid system and show the techno-economical effects of the height of the wind turbine on the sizing of the hybrid system. We also compare the simulation results obtained from using wind speed measured data at 10 meters and 40 meters of height with the ones obtained from using wind speed extrapolation on HOMER software.
