Abstract

This paper presents the measurements conducted for two periods (winter and summer) in the region of Gabrovo, Bulgaria for solar radiation and wind conditions using the digital measuring equipment. The aim is to evaluate  and predict the possible production of electricity from already installed low power hybrid system. The conclusion is that a combination of a wind generator and a photovoltaic system in the hybrid system for independent power supply has a good economic effect and allows fuller use of energy from renewable sources.
