A mobile power supply system of 2 kW with a 0.75 kW wind turbine, 1.6 kWpsolar cells, 18.4 kWh battery capacity and a back up generator set, trimmed to 2 kW, has been developed, constructed and tested. The system is a reduced size prototype for the development of new hardware (a bi-directional converter) and new control concepts (energy management and battery management). The lay-out of the system, its innovative features and the first results are presented. 42 figs., 4 tabs., 7 appendices, 5 refs.
