Wind and solar power provide a clean energy resource and are promising in the short term in Turkey. In this study, the usage of wind and solar energy to produce electricity and the possibility of electrical energy production from wind and sun hybrid energy systems in the region of Eskisehir for application purposes has been studied. First, a wind and sun observation station was founded at the Anadolu University Iki Eylül Campus, and data were collected for 6 months to determine the wind energy potential. Values from the established measurements are searched to determine whether electricity production from the wind and solar energy is feasible. Also a hybrid (Wind-Solar) Energy Production System Model is constructed and economical analysis for the given period was made. It is aimed that by using this model the bigger systems analysis can be done. © 2006 IEEE.
