Objective: Modeling of a hybrid system is a powerful device which utilizes solar energy and energy source from the wind which is given to the DC bus that will in turn produce the power supply without any disturbances. Methods/Analysis: In this paper, depending upon the requirement the load is driven either by wind energy or solar energy. The alternative sources of energy are connected to a DC-DC converter by means of a current source. Findings: To reduce the unwanted components or hardwares this model is implemented with low cost power converter. A fuzzy logic based wind/solar combined model is designed for 30 KW. The load voltage obtained is 300 V and the load current obtained is 0.1 KA. In this solar/wind combined system, the power which is generated by wind runs at an average speed. The maximum power can be obtained with the introduction of fuzzy logic concept along with photovoltaic arrays which is used under incremental conduction algorithm. Novelty/Improvements: The maximum power can be derived from more than two renewable resources by using this hybrid system.
