Özet

This paper is devoted to assess the possibility of using a hybrid wind/PV system for water pumping in Iraq. A hybrid wind/photovoltaic system was analyzed based on available wind speed records and annual solar radiation in Baghdad terminals, Iraq, as a case study. A small-scale hybrid wind/PV system is considered and modeled with an adapted to reveal the daily water discharge in terms of the operating conditions. To do so, a computer code written in MATLAB was built to simulate the performance of the proposed system. The system was tested on May 21, 2017, in Baghdad (33 degrees 33 ' N 44 degrees 44E). Effect of critical performance parameters such as well depth, ambient temperature, solar radiation intensity and wind turbine rotor configuration was reflected on productivity of the considered system.
