In this paper, the authors investigate a robust Integrated Optimal Design (IOD) devoted to a passive wind turbine system with electrochemical storage bank: this stand alone system is dedicated to rural electrification. The aim of the IOD is to find the optimal combination and sizing among a set of system components that fulfils system requirements with the lowest system Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). The passive wind system associated with the storage bank interacts with wind speed and load cycles. A set of passive wind turbines spread on a convenient power range (2 – 16 kW) are obtained through an IOD process at the device level detailed in previous papers. The system cost model is based on data sheets for the wind turbines and related to battery cycles for the storage bank. From the range of wind turbines, a “system level” optimization problem is stated and solved using an exhaustive search. The optimization results are finally exposed and discussed through a sensitivity analysis in order to extract the most robust solution versus environmental data variations among a set of good solutions.
