Abstract: This thesis first proposes a hybrid ac/dc micro-grid and its coordination control for reducing the processes of multiple conversions in an individual ac or dc grid. Renewable energy based distributed generators (DGs) play a dominant role in electricity production, with the increase in the global warming. Distributed generation based on wind, solar energy, biomass, mini-hydro along with use of fuel cells and micro- turbines will give significant momentum in near future. Advantages like environmental friendliness, expandability and flexibility have made distributed generation, powered by various renewable and nonconventional micro-sources. The micro-grid concept introduces the reduction of multiple reverse conversions in an individual AC or DC grid and also facilitates connections to variable renewable AC and DC sources and loads to power systems. The interconnection of DGs to the utility/grid through power electronic converters has risen concerned about safe operation and protection of equipment’s. To the customer the micro-grid can be designed to meet their special requirements. In the present work the performance of hybrid AC/DC micro-grid system is analyzed in the grid tied mode. Here photovoltaic system, wind turbine generator and battery are used for the development of Micro- grid. A small hybrid grid has been modeled and simulated using the Simulink in the MATLAB. The simulation results show that the system can maintain stable operation under the proposed coordination control schemes.
