Renewable energy systems such as photovoltaic (PV) and wind energy systems are widely designed grid connected or autonomous. This is a problem especially in small powerful system due to the restriction on the inverter markets. Inverters which are utilised in these kinds of energy systems operate on grid or off grid. In this study, a novel power management strategy has been developed by designing a wind-PV hybrid system to operate both as an autonomous system and as a grid-connected system. The inverter used in this study has been designed to operate both on-grid and off-grid. Due to the continuous demand for energy, gel batteries are used in the hybrid system. The designed Power Management Unit performs measurement from various points in the system and in accordance with this measurement; it provides an effective energy transfer to batteries, loads and grid. The designed control unit provided the opportunity to work more efficiently up to 10% rate.
