The purpose of this project is to design and
build a double input DC/DC converter for controlling
a hybrid system formed by a photovoltaic
system and a vertical axis wind turbine,
with the goal of tracking the maximum power
point. Both power generation systems must be
deeply studied in order to understand their principle
of working and nd the most optimum
MPPT algorithm for this purpose. Once the
MPPT algorithm has been selected, it will be
simulated with both power generation models.
Several multiple input power converter topologies
will be analysed and the most suitable for
this application will be studied.A simulation will
be carry on using the models developed for this
purpose in order to study its behaviour. The selected
double input converter will be simulated
and the control system will be tested in the simulation.
Finally it will be built and tested in the
laboratory rst and afterwards with both power
generation systems.
