Abstract: This paper presents the design of a double loop controller for the grid interconnection of PV-wind hybrid system with shunt active filtering and neutral current compensation capabilities. Using Lypunov stability theory-based procedure, a backstepping controller is designed for the outer loop DC link voltage control. The adaptive nature of back stepping controller results in better dynamic performance compared to conventional controllers. Inner loop consists of instantaneous power theory-based controller for harmonic current compensation. Instantaneous power theory is modified by employing positive sinusoidal sequence regulator and self-tuning filter to improve the system performance in unbalanced and distorted grid voltage conditions. A dynamic model of the system is considered for the design. Numerical simulations are done in MATLAB/Simulink platform for different system conditions to verify the effectiveness of controller in grid interfacing of renewable sources, and the shunt active filtering.

Keywords: backstepping control; DC link voltage control; grid connected renewable system; shunt active filter; wind-solar hybrid system.
