Abstract:

In the present day scenario the major problem that India is facing is electrifying the whole country, which has not been possible even after 67 years of independence. This paper presents the design idea of a hybrid standalone system of an optimized PV solar and wind module for a rural home. Apart from the photo voltaic solar cell array and mast mounted wind turbine, the system also has lead acid storage battery, electrical lightning load, a 10W LED light, a 25W DC fan, several fuse and junction boxes and associated wiring. The simulation results give the best optimized sizing of wind and solar array.
