—In this paper, the performance of the proposed off-grid wind-solar PV hybrid system powering the cathodic protection unit is simulated and analyzed using MATLAB/SIMULINK. Furthermore, the performance simulation for the battery energy storage system with PV-wind hybrid energy system under variable solar irradiance and wind speed respectively is also conducted. The hybrid system consists of a wind turbine which uses a permanent magnet synchronous generator driven directly from the turbine, a PV array and a battery bank. The simulated results reflect that the designed hybrid system of such capacity can adequately supply a cathodic protection unit with no power shortage at different weather conditions.
