Abstract: This project aims at designing an off grid solar-wind hybrid system for a remote locality. First of all, availability of solar and wind resources for a particular location in Chittagong has been checked. According to the solar irradiance and wind speed data Parki Sea Beach has been chosen as project site which is situated in Gahira, Anwara thana under southern part of Chittagong, Bangladesh. Different combinations have been selected by using HOMER in order to find minimized solution considering both cost and electricity production
Keywords: Hybrid Power System, HOMER, Weibull function.
