An efficient energy management system for a small-scale hybrid wind-solar-battery based microgrid is proposed in this paper. The wind and solar energy conversion systems and battery storage system have been developed along with power electronic converters, control algorithms and controllers to test the operation of hybrid microgrid. The power balance is maintained by an energy management system for the variations of renewable energy power generation and also for the load demand variations. This

A real-time control is performed by rapid control prototyping to test and validate the control algorithms of microgrid system experimentally. The proposed small-scale renewable energy based microgrid can be used as a test bench for research and testing of algorithms in smart grid applications.
