Abstract: In this paper, a hybrid photovoltaic (PV)/fuel cell (FC) power generation system is considered, where the hydrogen generated by the electrolysis process is used for subsequent FC operation. A novel induction motor-based compressor is proposed to boost up the pressure of hydrogen, and hence to improve the performance of the FC system. A fuzzy logic-based maximum power point tracking (MPPT) system is designed for the considered PV system. Finally, a coordinated control scheme is applied for controlling the power supplied to the load by integrating both the sources. The complete model is realised in the MATLAB/Simulink environment. Extensive simulation studies are conducted to verify the developed model. The performance of the complete system is found satisfactory under different conditions.
