ABSTRACT
This paper presents the concept of optimal utilisation of hybrid wind-solar system as dynamic voltage restorer (DVR) for voltage sag, voltage swell, outage and unbalanced voltage mitigation. In addition to the voltage regulation, the proposed DVR reduces the energy consumption from the utility grid during both daytime and night time. However, the reduction of energy consumption is always desirable for the reduction of panel tariff, electricity demand and global warming gasses. The MATLAB Simulink and experimental results are presented to validate the advantages of the proposed system
