Rapid population growth and industrialization in developing countries cause an increase in demand for energy. In order to meet this energy demand, two types of resources are used: renewable energy and nonrenewable energy. Nonrenewable sources, also called fossil fuels, cause environmental problems in serious and dangerous dimensions. For this reason, it is a necessity to find alternatives. It is a renewable energy source that can be used as an alternative to fossil fuels. This chapter deals with power control of a PV/wind system for power generation with dynamic input dataset. The main contribution of this chapter is that it is the first time to use real data from PV/wind system and observe the system reliability with real-time simulation results. The proposed system consists of doubly fed induction-based wind generator, rotor-side converter (RSC), grid-side converter (GSC), solar arrays, DC-DC converter and grid-side converter, and grid and dynamic loads. The aim of the proposed strategy is to use wind and solar energies with maximum efficiency by simulating the real condition of wind and insolation with input datasets. The modeling and the validation of the operation of the system and its controllers are done by using PSCAD/EMTDC.
