The hybrid renewable energy harvesting and grid integration system has been proposed and validated in this work. The proposed system uses a Wind Energy Conversion System (WECS) and a Solar Photo Voltaic Energy Conversion System (SPVECS). The WECS uses Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generator (PMSG) driven by a wind turbine. The variable frequency and variable voltage output of PMSG is rectified by Diode Bridge Rectifier (DBR) and stepped up by Super Lift Luo Converter (SLLC 1), and finally, the harvested wind energy is delivered to the Direct Current (DC) link of a Distributed Static Synchronous Compensator (DSTATCOM). Further, SPV energy is harvested by using PV modules and voltage is stepped up by another SLLC (SSLC 2), and the harvested PV energy is brought to the DC link of DSTATCOM. The DSTATCOM extends real and reactive power support to the load. The various subsystems of the proposed system have been modelled in Matrix Laboratory (MATLAB) Simulink environment and analyzed their performance.
