Abstract

This study presents a techno-economic evaluation of a stand-alone hybrid power system. The system consists of three energy sources, photovoltaic (PV) panels, a wind turbine and a proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC). PV and wind turbine is the main sources for the system and the fuel cell performs as a backup power source. Therefore, continuous energy supply needs energy storing devices.
