Wind-Solar Hybrid Power Generation Model



Here i'm going to share my final-year college project "Wind-solar hybrid power generation model" that i've built and completed recently. the very basic outline of this project (or you can say the abstract) is that -The combination of power output from solar PV module and wind mill is being stored and utilized thru' a battery for a stand-alone system. This model also can be used in a grid-tie system with help of a moderate PCU(Power Converting Unit).






Abstract:

Wind power generation and solar power generation are combined to make a WIND-SOLAR HYBRID POWER GENERATION SYSTEM. A 6v, 5Ah lead-acid battery is used to store solar power and charging is controlled by a charger circuit which has been discussed here. Power output of this hybrid system is 7 watts (9VDC, 0.77A DC) .


The Working Model

The working model of Wind-Solar hybrid power generation consists of a twin-turbine wind mill and a solar PV array(with two PV module). First i'm going to discuss about the Wind-mill.

Construction of Wind-Mill

  • Here, we used two PMDC (Permanent Magnet DC) motors to work as a generator.
  •  Both are same rated i.e. 12V, 0.75Amps, 2400 rpm .
  •  Two symmetrical 3-bladed set made of aluminum used as turbine blade.
  •  These two-turbine are connected in series so that output voltage is the result of the summation of these twin-turbine set.
  •  Height of the wind-mill stand is about 24 inches.
  •  Distance between the turbines is about 8 inches.
  •  Base of the wind-mill is 6x6 sq. inches
  •  Diameter of the turbine-holder is 1.25 inches.

Solar Power Generation

  • Here comes the next part : solar power. for solar power generation we used two 6V, 3Watts PV module.
  • Connect them in series to get 12V DC output.
  • Output of these two module will then feed to a 6V,5Ah lead-acid battery via a charger circuit.
  • In this image you can see two solar PV module connected in series whose output are send to the charger circuit and the output of the charger circuit is connected to a 6V, 5Ah lead-acid battery.

  • Ouput of The lead-acid battery(which is charged by the solar array) is connected in series with the Wid-mill.
  • output of this hybrid system is powering up a 6V LED lighting system.

    2. Rightly said!! dont take it wrongly. i made this post to display my work.that's it. and in the internet there are the only paper work available, not actual model in this idea.

  4. We use many kind of power. Such as solar energy.,solar power panel, wind power etc. Our main target to get power for use. I think solar power is very useful.

    Dear Amrit Mandal thank you for your project.

  11. great job,solar power batteries are becoming increasingly popular as the world begins to take notice of the burgeoning
    carbon emission problems that come with burning fossil fuels.

  12. We often hear about solar car, Solar charge controller,solar heating or solar batteries. But will solar energy ever be a major source of energy for industrial societies? The solar energy is cheaper than any other fossil fuels because we can get the abundant source from the sun.get more information Solar plant in india Magaldeep Solar system

  13. Thanks for sharing your project. Most people choose solar panels or residential wind turbines based on their location. The combination of both equipments will help many people in generating and using green energy regardless of their location.
