A Noval Converter For Integrated Wind – Pv Energy System

A Devika Bala, T Subash chowdary, D Srilatha


Environmentally friendly solutions are becoming more prominent than ever as a result of concern regarding the state of our deteriorating planet. This paper presents a new system configuration of the front end rectifier stage for a hybrid wind/photovoltaic energy system. This configuration allows the two sources to supply the load separately or simultaneously depending on the availability of the energy sources. There is no need for additional input filters to eliminate the high frequency harmonics, because the PV cell is operated by the new converter. The fused multi input rectifier stage also allows Maximum Power Point Tracking(MPPT) to be used to extract maximum power from the wind and sun when it is available. An adaptive MPPT algorithm will be used for the wind system and a standard perturb and observe method will be used for the PV system. Operational analysis of the proposed system will be discussed in this paper. Simulation results are given to highlight the merits of the proposed circuit.
