The foundation of a new topology for a fully variable speed hybrid wind/diesel power system has been modelled in Matlab Simulink. Use of the variable speed diesel generator is shown to increase fuel savings over a constant speed generator in a hybrid system. The load matching capabilities of the variable speed diesel generator to wind speed drops in the hybrid system are then assessed. Finally integration of a variable speed wind turbine and new variable speed diesel generator through the DC-link stage of an AC/DC/AC power converter has been simulated to establish compatibility
