The exhaustion and all the drawbacks of fossil fuels are the main elements that led to the development and use of new alternativesfor power generation based on renewable energy,amongthem: photovoltaic energy systems, windenergy systems and their combination in a hybrid photovoltaic-wind system. In this paper we proposed a sizing approach of stand-alone Photovoltaic-Wind systems which is evaluated by the development of a computer applicationbased essentially on Loss of Power Supply Probability (LPSP) algorithmto provide an optimal technical-economic configuration. An example of a PV-Wind plant sizing is presented and discussed. © 2013 The Authors.
