Paper Title:
Application of Wind and Small Hydro Energy Sources for Rural Electric Power Supply in Nigeria
  Abstract

The paper looks into the possibilities of using available renewable resources in rural areas for electric power generation for remote consumers. Based on meteorological data (the hourly wind speed) collected and analyzed for Dapchi, a north eastern rural settlement of Nigeria, coupled with hydrological data of River Kamadougu Gena, the hourly power produced from a hybrid power system comprising of wind and small hydro power systems is evaluated and considered as a supply source to electrical loads of the settlement.
