Research Abstract: 

The paper deals with a fuzzy logic based strategy managing the power flows in an hybrid generation plant. Such a plant works in island mode and is composed of: a wind turbine, a photovoltaic generator and a fuel cell/electrolyzer energy storage system. The performances of the proposed strategy are evaluated by simulation in different operating conditions. To this purpose some performance indexes are considered, such as: the frequency deviation, the stability of the DC bus voltage and the AC voltage total harmonic distortion. Simulation results confirm the effectiveness of the proposed power management strategy, providing the ground for the practical realization of a fuzzy logic based control system. Moreover the efficiency of the developed fuzzy logic controller is compared to that of a more conventional controller taking into the fuel cell H2 consumption, the amount of H2 generated from the Electrolyzer and the final battery state of charge (SOC(.
