In this chapter, a grid connected hybrid power system consisting of a Photovoltaic (PV) source and a Wind Turbine (WT) generator is investigated. The main goal is the study of the design procedure of a digital control circuit of an energy generation system for future implementation on the Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) platform. Hence, well-known Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) techniques are adopted in order to extract the maximum energy from the renewable energy sources. Further, for the control of Permanent Magnetic Synchronous Generator (PMSG), the Field Oriented Control (FOC) structure is applied. The Virtual Flux Oriented Control (VFOC) scheme is adopted for the control of the grid connected three-phase inverter based on the backstepping approach. The overall control scheme of the PV-WT power system is established using the Xilinx System Generator (XSG) design tool. The simulation results are provided in order to prove the effectiveness of the developed XSG based control circuit.
