SOLAR / WIND / GRID HYBRID POWER PACKS
SOLAR WIND HYBRID ENERGY POWER PACK
Solar Photovoltaics is a very reliable source of energy but in case of cloudy weather the energy availability becomes intermittent, to maintain continuous availability of energy we must think of combining another energy like wind energy. The combined energy packs are required in hilly areas where the weather is mostly cloudy and has intermittent wind, The cloudy conditions and intermittent wind makes it difficult for using any one of the energy in isolation, The best approach is to combine both and store it for use as and when any of them or both are available.
TARGET AREA / POPULATION
The target area for this system is hilly areas and high altitude habitation. The system helps provide basic energy needs.
The innovation factor in the system are ;
Optimal harvest of wind energy even at low speeds.
Design of a high efficiency vertical axis blade
Ultra low cut in speed generators / Dynamo
Optimal algorithm for microprocessor to help in combining input energy forms.
Storage battery protection circuitry.
Design of low cost ‘micro’ wind solar hybrid packs of 10 watt capacity for use in coastal and hilly areas.
