This paper explores the usage of hybrid power generation system based on a Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC), Wind, and an Ultra-Capacitor (UC) in a grid-connected scheme. The UC acts as an energy storage system to compensate for the slow dynamic response of the SOFC. This combination of components effectively maintains a stable output of power from the Wind system. Control systems are implemented to manage the power converters associated with the energy system to meet the expected demand. The SOFC needs to increase its power in the face of changes in the inverter power or a decrease in Wind power, and in both cases, the UC supplies energy until the SOFC reaches the desired power output level. Recharging of the UC is done using Wind power. The hybrid system is capable of providing constant power irrespective of fluctuations in wind speed. Results obtained from simulations are presented to demonstrate the performance of the hybrid system with respect to the changing wind speed and load.
