Hybrid PV Wind Diesel Generator grid system

Hybrid PV Wind Diesel Generator grid system


Welcome, viewers, to another insightful tutorial by LMS Solution! In today's session, we will explore a simulation model created for a Hybrid Solar PV, Wind, and Diesel Generator System using MATLAB. This comprehensive system integrates various renewable energy sources, providing an efficient and sustainable power solution.

System Overview:

The hybrid system comprises the following key components:

Main Grid:

  • Rated at 154 megawatts with a voltage rating of 34.5 kilovolts, connected to a step-down transformer.


  • A step-down transformer converts the voltage from 34.5 kilovolts to 400 kilovolts for further distribution.

PV Panel Array:

  • A 41-kilowatt PV system connected to an inverter with MPPT control.

Wind Turbine:

  • Equipped with a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generator (PMNG) and a control system for efficient power generation.

Diesel Generator:

  • A 30-kilowatt diesel generator providing backup power when renewable sources are insufficient.

Critical and Non-Critical Loads:

  • The system caters to two critical loads (400 kW and 80 kW) and a non-critical load of 500 kW.

Simulation Components:

Control Logic:

  • Various control mechanisms, including MPPT for the PV system, speed regulation for the wind turbine, and governor/excitation control for the diesel generator.

Measurement and Visualization:

  • Utilizing MATLAB scopes to measure and visualize grid power, solar power, wind power, and diesel power.

Simulation Results:

Power Output:

  • The simulation demonstrates the power output of each energy source, including solar power (around 40.5 kW), wind power (1.5 MW), and diesel power (25 kW).

Buses Measurement:

  • Bus voltage and current measurements are showcased for different system components, providing insights into the electrical characteristics at various points.

Load Power Consumption:

  • The power consumption of critical and non-critical loads is visualized in kilowatts.


This simulation highlights the dynamic behavior of a hybrid system, effectively managing power generation from solar, wind, and backup diesel sources. The integration of control logic ensures a smooth transition between energy sources based on availability and demand.
