Reducing fossil energy resources and increasing greenhouse gas necessitate the needs of clean sources of energy. One of the sources of renewable energy is wind power which has been developed in recent years. Sometimes wind power in peak hours does not respond. Hence, a storage system and backup power for these power plants is necessary. In this study, a hybrid system containing electrolyzer hydrogen storage, and fuel cell was presented for a wind farm to provide the reliable power and also offered valuable by-products. In this paper, a case study for the system was analyzed in the Kouhin area of Qazvin province. Technical and economic optimization of the system suggested that in the best scenario (consisting of 3 wind turbines), the annual production rate of the hybrid system would be 2,268,072 kWh which 9.41% of this is the share of fuel cell. The results showed that the hybrid system caused 10.8% increase in the amount of wind power capacity factor. The calculated cost of energy (COE) and the net present cost (NPC) for the hybrid system were 0.7599 and 5,235,066 USD, respectively.
