This paper describes the architecture and control of an autonomous hybrid solar-wind system (AHSWS) powered distributed generation system supplying to a 3ϕ-4 wire system. It includes a nonlinear controlling technique for maximum power point tracking (MPPT) used in doubly fed induction generator dependent wind energy translation scheme and solar photovoltaic system (SPVS). In the hybrid model, the DC/DC converter output from the PV system is explicitly coupled with the DC-link of DFIG's back-to-back converter. An arithmetical model of the device is developed, derived using a suitable d-q reference frame. The grid-voltage-oriented vector regulation is required to manage the GSC to keep the steady-state voltage of the DC bus and to adjust reactive power on the grid side. Also, the stator-voltageoriented control scheme offers a stable function of DFIG to regulate the RSC on the stator edge for reactive and active power management in this approach. DC/DC converter is being used to maintain the maximum power from SPVS. A Perturb & Observe method is used for tracing maximum power in an SPVS. The simulation designs of 4.0kW DFIG and 4.5kW solar array simulator are built-in SIMPOWER software kit of MATLAB, it is shown to achieve optimum efficiency under various mechanical and electrical circumstances. It can produce rated frequency and voltage in both scenarios.
