Now-a-days Renewable Energy Sources like Solar and Wind are becoming popular for household applications. Solar power is available in daytime only and there is no method of developing power for night loads except the use of power stored in batteries. Wind energy is the alternate energy available. A better solution for the above situation is the combination of PV and Wind to form a hybrid system for domestic loading. Integration of PV and Wind systems in the form of AC faces many difficulties such as synchronizing of phase, amplitude and frequency of the voltages. To avoid the complexities of integration in AC, this paper presents a simple way for integration in the DC form.

This paper presents a case study of JNT University Campus, where a fault is applied to JNTU network as a consideration of natural disaster. Under these conditions the power from Main Grid is turned off and the alternate power for desired loads is obtained from the PV-Wind hybrid system.
