Photovoltaic, eolic and mixed power systems connected to the electrical network or isolated – Photovoltaic power systems For Space aplication

Power systems based on clean energy such as photovoltaic or eolic energy are increasingly being used as a method of obtaining clean
energy. In particular, mixed systems of solar and wind energy are interesting because their combination makes them ideal since solar
energy can be obtained in days with high irradiation, while wind energy can provide complementary energy when the photovoltaic system
can not, as during the night or on days with high cloudiness that however are usually windy. The possibility that these power systems
connect to the electricity network means that most buildings can be energy producers.
These power systems can be mounted insulated to provide useful energy throughout the day and used for feeding instrumentation or
domestic power in isolated areas where there is no established electrical network. The photovoltaic systems are particularly used in space
missions to power instrumentation and will be installed in the future on the Moon, Mars and other planets as sources of energy.
