The main objectives of the work described in this paper to model and simulate the autonomous
hybrid photovoltaic wind generator with battery storage (PV/WG). The more accurate and practical
mathematic models for characterizing PV module, wind generator and battery storage are adopted,
combining with hourly measured meteorological data and load data.
The hourly wind speed, solar radiation and environmental temperature data for the typical day’s in
the different seasons recorded at Algerian Meteorological Office of Bechar (South Western of Algeria
(31. 38° north latitude, 2. 15° western longitude, and 0.20 albédo)) [1], have been analysed to
investigate the potential of utilizing hybrid (PV/ WG) energy conversion systems used to feed with
electrical energy a typical rural house at Bechar.

The performance of hybrid systems consisting of different rated power wind generator, PV areas
and storage battery are presented.

The hourly average energy generated for the above hybrid system configuration has been compared
with hourly load data of typical house.

The hybrid systems considered in the present study consist of a Fortis Espada 800 Watt wind
generator, 11 Siemens SP35 (35W) PV panels supplemented with 6 battery storage unit for 1 day
autonomy rate. The load is a rural house with 650 Watt.
Modelling and optimization Simulation is performed in a Matlab software environment.
