    Laboratory Implementation of a Photovoltaic-Wind Hybrid DC-AC Electricity Generation System
    Author(s): Kingsley Omatola*

    The rotation and revolution of the earth affect the solar irradiation and wind availability of a location respectively. Wind energy availability is dependent on solar activity making them to be complementary and consequent upon the law of conservation of energy can be separately and as well be combined to convert their energy (light or mechanical) into electrical energy for electric power generation. For an improved, reliable, continuous and sustainable electric energy supply without degradation of the environment as is the case with electric power derivation from the conventional fossil fuels that are hydrocarbon based, an attempt is made in this work to combine photovoltaic and wind energy systems’ output voltages to obtain a hybridized system. The output voltage of the photovoltaic and wind energy system at established optimum conditions is coupled and fed through a rectifier.. Read More»
