This paper proposes a hybrid energy system combing solar photovoltaic and wind turbine as a small-scale alternative source of electrical energy where conventional generation is not practical. A simple and cost effective control technique has been proposed for maximum power point tracking from the photovoltaic array and wind turbine under varying climatic conditions without measuring the irradiance of the photovoltaic or the wind speed. The proposed system is attractive owing to its simplicity, ease of control and low cost. A complete description of the proposed hybrid system along with detailed simulation results which ascertain its feasibility are given to demonstrate the availability of the proposed system in this paper. Simulation of the hybrid system under investigation was carried out using PSIM software
