Abstract: This article presents the performance study of a variable-speed wind and solid oxide fuel cell-based hybrid distributed generation system, along with the energy storage devices in the grid connected mode of operation. The developed model has a salient feature of utilizing fluctuating output power of wind systems to produce hydrogen and also to charge the ultra capacitor. The presented model in the article also uses the stored energy in the ultra capacitor to compensate for the slow response time of the fuel cell. The distributed generation systems and energy storage devices considered in this study are integrated at common distributed generation links to form the hybrid system. The hybrid system is interfaced to the grid through the three-phase voltage source inverter in this article. The detailed modeling of the individual components of the hybrid distributed generation system, along with the necessary power electronic converter control schemes, are presented. The simulation results reported in this article show the effective performance of the hybrid model to produce reliable, low-cost electricity and hydrogen from the variable wind generation system. 2016 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
