Hybrid Photovoltaic-Wind system (HPWS) is becoming the most current renewable energy sources used to power an electrical load demand, hybridization help to take all their advantages through reaching the best compromise between technical and economic criterion. In this paper, a thorough analysis of one-year weather situation and energy performance for two locations (Rabat and Tangier) is performed for sizing and integrating HPWS. The target is consisted to find the optimized hybrid configuration capabilities to ensure the electrical load demand of the laboratory prototype. The TRNSYS/Matlab has been used to simulate the annual performance of different configurations of HPWS and provides the optimum configuration, which ensures supplying the load demand. Moreover, the analysis of the dynamic simulation results allows having a visibility of the hybrid system requirement and the integration cost, besides to evaluate the economic aspect of each optimized solution. The hybridization of two sources of energy can in some cases reduce the cost of installation and energy. As result: for the same load profile, and for two coastal sites spaced 250 km apart, two different system requirement has been identified, PV=9kWp-Wind=1kW for UIR Rabat and PV=3kWp-Wind=3kW for FST Tangier. And also two different capital cost has been found: 17215 € for UIR Rabat and 14695 € for FST Tangier.
