Modeling of Grid Connected Hybrid Wind/PV Generation System using MATLAB
This paper presents the modeling of grid connected hybrid wind-solar photovoltaic (PV) system. The proposed
system consists of wind generator, wind-side converter, solar PV array, dc-dc converter, and grid interface inverter.
Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) is important in solar PV system, because they maximize the output power from the
PV system so that effective PV array utilization. The power extracted from hybrid wind-solar power system is transferred to
the grid interface inverter by keeping common dc voltage constant. Sinusoidal Pulse Width Modulation (SPWM) technique
is used for generating pulses for inverter. The simulation study is carried out using MATLAB and results are presented.
