Utility restructuring, cutting-edge power electronics, public environmental concerns, and expanding power demand are providing the opportunity for emerging generation technologies in the modern world. In order to meet sustained load demands during varying natural conditions, different energy sources need to be integrated with each other for extended usage of alternative energy. The paper presents the modeling and control framework of a photovoltaic cell-battery-fuel cell(PVBFC) integrated stand-alone distributed generation system(DGS) in Matlab/Simulink environment. A new control strategy for charging and discharging controller(CDC) of generic battery(GB), maximum power point tracker(MPPT) for photovoltaic cell(PVC) and fuel flow rate controller(FRC) for fuel cell(FC) are developed. GB works in parallel with PVC to compensate varying natural conditions in day time and FC works independently at night. we have also designed an inverter model for the proposed system by considering the output voltage regulation.
