Abstract

The main objective of this research work is Rural/Urban Electrification through hybrid system which comprises wind and solar energy. The aim is wind turbine design which is to be mounted on tops of towers. Therefore, we resolved to design a horizontal axis wind turbine (HAWT). The main advantage of (HAWT) over the (VAWT) is its higher efficiency. The system will include the yaw shaft, Rotor blade, solar panel, Rectifier/inverter, Generator, Tail pole, Tail wind, Tower, Controller Battery. The designed and developed wind turbine is to generate electricity that is sufficient for domestic use in rural / urban settlements. The generated electricity will be saved in battery, then delivered to the load. The emphasis of this research work is on electrification of rural/urban settlements where load shedding is still done to meet electricity demand.
