This system is about coupling Photovoltaic (PV), Horizontal Wind Turbine (HWT), and pumping systems for irrigation and other uses. The whole system is in performance mode. The hybrid system contains the following:
1-Photovoltaic with batteries.
2-Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine with electric generator calculations and specifications.
3-Irrigation Pump.
Furthermore; the user can go through the calculation model for centrifugal pump, which the user can calculate the following:
-Pressure difference
-Actual pump head based on the addressed losses
-Specific speed: to decided the flow pump type (radial, mixed, or axial)
-Hub diameter
-Shaft diameter
-3 Phase induction motor model has been added to the system. Users can select dynamically between PV and the motor application for powering on the pump.
The user will be able to calculate the flow rate based on the power load from the PV/HWT. The dynamic load is also allowed. Users can change the solar radiation to examine the effect on system performance. 


**MatLab-SimuLink (64bit) should be used to run the model.
