The main aim of this project is to design an effective hybrid solar-wind electricity generating system (W_SElect) to ensure sustainable power supply. Electricity generated by photovoltaic (PV) panel and wind turbine is highly dependent on the availability of sunlight and wind respectively. Therefore, in order to ensure that the electricity supply is enough and sustainable, wind electricity generation system is needed to be combined with the solar electricity generating system to meet the load demand when sunlight is insufficient. In this project, solar photovoltaic panels, wind generators, electricity storage system and the methods of integration are studied. For the methodology of the project, PV panel and wind turbine is connected in parallel to the integrated system to regulate the electricity generated with the voltage of storage system. A prototype of W_SElect was designed. The findings from the experiments on the prototype shown that the power contribution of wind electricity in W_SElect is low, thus it can helps solar electricity in generating electricity when there is no sunlight. Then, software is designed according to the findings. In conclusion, this project is successful. The efficiency of W_SElect can be improved by improving the design and material of wind turbine.
