The Hybrid PV/Wind power system is the best renewable energy sources due to their complementary nature. In this paper explains the simulation and control of DC/DC converter for a prototype of 3kW PV and 3.2kW PMSG based wind energy conversion system. The perturbation and observation algorithm fused with the proposed converters is used for drawing maximum power from the input sources. So power from the two sources can be delivered either independently or simultaneously depending on their availability. The single phase sinusoidal pulse width modulation (SPWM) inverter which is based on PQ control strategy supplied total power to the grid and maintained DC link voltage constantly at 400V. The LCL filter at the output of the inverter kept THD of grid current within the standard limit, and we have found that power fluctuation has been completely reduced using battery bank
