A full characterization test of the hybrid system’s wind generator machine has been carried out. The test was divided into two parts. In the laboratory the generator efficiency was determined for a variety of rotational speeds in the range 150[rpm] – 1100[rpm] and the characteristics of the generator efficiency n™e against the output power Pout for the whole range of rotational speeds were plotted in the form
A wind tunnel test was organized in order to simulate realistic wind
 Reliable hourly climatic data were not provided. For sensitivity studies, we selected U. S. SOLMET station Bakersfield, CA whose climate is closest to that of Sede Boqer.
 The phase of the project with the longest lead time was construction of the combiner box requiring about 10 weeks.
