Abstract
This paper presents a multi-input single-phase grid-connected inverter for a hybrid photovoltaic (PV)/wind power system, integrated with basic and advanced functions developed by the authors. To achieve high quality current and fast dynamic response to inherent variations of hybrid renewable energy sources, an improved space vector pulse-width-modulation (PWM) based predictive current control algorithm is developed. Moreover, comprehensive system protection functions are implemented for practical applications. Experimental results have validated the developed multi-input inverter performance. Currently, the multi-input inverters are operating in numerous commercial installations in North America.
