Share of solar energy in total installed capacity of world and Turkey is increasing every year. Even though the wind and solar power plants are designed at the level of MW, the attraction for small-scale wind and solar applications is growing rapidly. Also, small-scale hybrid wind and solar power systems are constructed including battery to increase the reliability. In this study, microprocessor-based hybrid charging regulator to store solar and wind energy has been designed. The regulator is suitable for dry batteries. Charge control system has constant current and constant voltage control method. The maximum circuit current value, input voltage and the output voltage are determined according to the hybrid system characteristic values. This study can be implemented to high voltage batteries, with different characteristics by only updating software and reducing the measurement resolution. In addition, choice of battery voltage level can be increased and the charger can be made with different input voltage levels. This study has some differences from other studies such as charging the battery from different power sources used. Moreover, to perform the control of any circuit connected to the load and the battery charge status and charge-discharge state can also be measured. Finally the PC and system control in the same unit as a whole have been carried out both automatic and manual controls that can be done to design a new charging regulator.
