Abstract

This paper deals with a feasibility study of a solar and wind hybrid system for highway energy requirements. The paper describes the modeling of two emerging electricity systems based on renewable energy: photovoltaic and wind power. The study presents an evaluation of combined solar and wind system for highway energy requirements such as lighting, SOS, billboard, etc. A new model Savonius Wind Turbine was used for this study. The Savonius Turbine rotor has 3 stages with total of 2520 mm height; each stage has three plates of 1220 mm in diameter deviated at 120 degrees from each other.
