Alternative Energy A Closer look at Hybrid
Energy Systems using wind and solar
sources. EGR466 Winter 2008

Overview
  • Why is there a demand for alternative energy?
  • What is a hybrid energy system?
  • Why is a hybrid energy system a viable
    alternative to traditional energy sources?

3
Introduction
  • The demand for alternative energy sources is
    increasing each year due to need for clean and
    renewable sources of energy.
  • Hybrid energy systems are ideal for outdoor
    and/or remote area applications.

4
Background
  • The power of the wind has been harnessed for a
    least a thousand years. Earliest uses were to
    sail the seas, pump water, and grind grain.
  • The use of wind turbines to produce power is not
    a new idea but the large scale use is.
  • Solar power can also be traced back thousands of
    years. Earliest uses were for cooking.

5
Background (cont.)
  • A hybrid energy system is a system that consist
    of two or more alternative energy sources (ex
    solar and wind).
  • Hybrid energy systems are growing in popularity
    due to the reliability of stand alone solar or
    wind power sources.
  • Thermoelectric refrigeration is useful because it
    is ideal for outdoor/remote area applications.
    Since refrigeration is need worldwide it is
    important that areas that are off the grid or
    underdeveloped have access to refrigeration for
    storage of food and medicines.

6
Objective
  • Asked to design a device using an alternative
    energy source (ex wind, water, solar)
  • The system must be designed, manufactured, and
    tested by April 21st, 2008.
  • The budget for the project is 500. Which
    includes designing, testing, parts/supplies, and
    manufacturing.

7
Project Description
  • A hybrid energy system using wind and solar
    sources to produce power to a thermoelectric
    refrigerator and radio is designed, manufactured,
    and tested.
  • This system is ideal for outdoor/remote are
    applications.

8
Current Work
  • Determining if a hybrid system made up of solar
    and wind sources it more efficient that stand
    alone solar and wind sources.
  • Is thermoelectric refrigeration viable for
    outdoor/remote area applications?

Results
  • With direct light the solar panels produce an
    average of 19.26 V. The average current is 5.86
    mA.
  • After twenty four hours the average voltage is
    13.4. The average current is 0.9mA.
  • The current output for the turbine was 0.003mA.
    The wind turbine did not perform as desired and
    will be discussed in the future improvements
    section.
  • Overall the performance was great and this system
    could be a viable alternative energy option.

17
Summary and Conclusion
  • The overall performance of the hybrid renewable
    energy system was as expected. We were able to
    determine that this system would be a viable
    source of power production for outdoor and remote
    area applications. Due to time constraints some
    additional alterations could not be made to the
    wind turbine in order to get optimal performance.
    If time were available for further alterations
    the size of the stepper motor used should have
    been increased. Further improvements that should
    be made are in the portability of the entire
    system and materials used to construct the
    thermoelectric refrigerator.

18
Future Improvements
  • Increase the size of the stepper motor used for
    the wind turbine.
  • Select a different plastic for the thermoelectric
    refrigerator.
  • Make the entire system more portable. This could
    be accomplished by using a durable lightweight
    plastic and decreasing the size of the base.
  • For the thermoelectric refrigerator the use of
    more CPU coolers would increase the refrigerators
    cooling ability.
