Abstract

This paper discusses the detailed design, description and performance of a 20.1 kWp PV-wind hybrid renewable energy systems installed at the roof top of the LRC Building of Mindanao University of Science and Technology. This system supplies the lightings, convenient outlets, and 2 units of inverter type air-condition at the 3rd and 4th floor of LRC building. The power generated is measured and monitored through the measuring device called TED (The Energy Detective). TED records production and consumption detail, as well as showing net energy generated by the two system supplied to the load. The system started its operation on the second week of October 2013 and it was observed that an average of 55 kWh is generated per day. Hence, it is projected that the average energy production will be 20,075 kWh per year. Based on its performance, it is projected that this PV power system will save approximately P130,487.5 in utilities per year, and increase electrical reliability for a portion of the buildings in the quad. The avoided pollutants are approximately 10,579.5 kg of CO2, 79.3 kg of SO2 and 31.7 kg of Knox per year released to the region.
