Hybrid power system design involves the combination of two or more renewable energy sources for power supply of a house. Solar and wind renewable energy source are mostly used for residential applications than other sources. In this paper, thermal model of a house in Newfoundland is presented. Using the thermal model, hourly load of the house is determined. A hybrid power system is designed to meet the needs of the house in Harbour Main, NL. Hybrid power system consisting of a 4.43kW PV, a 3.7kW wind turbine, 16, 12V batteries and a 7kW inverter is designed for the house. Two other system options i.e. PV only and wind turbine only are also discussed in the paper. The paper also included details of all loads in the house. This research shows that the designed hybrid power system can meet all electrical needs of the house and system could be installed on the roof and in the backyard.
