This system is about coupling Photovoltaic, Thermal Photovoltaic (PVT), and/or Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine systems for power generation and water heating processes. The whole system is in performance mode. It is anticipated by the system to serve residential applications. The hybrid system contains the following:
1-Horizontal wind turbine with a generator and batteries.
2-Photovoltaic with batteries.
3-Thermal PV/PCM for electric power and water heating.
Thermal Photovoltaic Water Heater (PVTW) collectors are used for heating the water and electricity generation simultaneously. This technique benefits from both light and heat of solar radiation to produce electricity and hot fluids. The hot water is used for space heating purposes. PCM storage is used to maintain heat supply to the waterside. Users can select between the use or not use PCM material. User will be able to calculate the following:
2-Outlet water temperature.
Users will be able to control the operating conditions such as solar radiation and wind speed to obtain the variation along the day, week, month, year, etc... The user will be able to calculate the power load from the PV, PVT, and HWT. The dynamic load is also allowed. Users can change the solar radiation and wind speed to examine their effect on system performance.
