MACHINOCRAFT have developed Solar-Wind Hybrid Systems, which is the call of the day for supplying Power to Remote, Rural and Non-Powered Villages.
Considering Indian climatic conditions, Wind Aerogenerator systems are usually added up with some Solar Photovoltaic to make it a Hybrid System. Major components of a Solar-Wind Hybrid Systems are Wind Aerogenerators, Solar Photovoltaic Panels, Tower for Wind Aerogenerator - which can be a Guyed type or Self-Supporting type, Power Center Controller for Wind and Solar, Battery Bank – which is normally deep discharge tubular plate type or Valve Regulated Lead Acid type, Inverter and Cabling.
Besides this various protection like Emergency Braking Arrangement and Dump Load for excessive power to pass-on, are also involved. A Power Meter is provided at utility to record the generation. Here too, we provide a Manual Change Over Switch, thus Solar-Wind as well as Main supply can be utilized as per availability.
Output from these Systems are between 2.5 to 3 Units per KW per day at a Wind Speed of 5.5 m/s & above for 10 to 12 hours and Solar Radiation at 6 kWh / sq. mtr. for 6 to 8 hours.
Solar-Wind Hybrid Systems are suitable for generating Power for Telecommunication Towers, Campus Lighting in Society, Essential Lighting, Emergency Lights, Computers and even providing Power supply to Lifts.

DETAILS OF SOLAR-WIND HYBRID SYSTEM
Wind Aerogenerator starts generating power
at cut - in wind speed of around 3 to
3.5 m / s. The Wind Aerogenerator
generates three phase AC power supply,
which is converted into DC through Power
Solar PV Panels generates DC power which
is connected through Controller.
The DC power is then
stored in Battery Bank.
The stored power
is connected to utility through
Inverter (Single / Three Phase)
provided – Voltage, Current, Battery
Over / Under Voltage.
is on lower side, Dump Load is activated
to protect Battery Bank.
