The dynamic stability of grid connected PV, wind and wave power generation system is presented in this paper. The power produced by wind power generation system is design in accordance to Permanent magnet synchronous generator and wave power generation design in linear induction generator. The induction generator works on Archimedes wave swing (AWS) principle. The output terminal of the hybrid system is connected through the common link of dc bus bar via voltage source converter (VSC). Though, this dc power is converted to the ac power through voltage source inverter (VSI). To smoothen the ripple, a supercapacitor (SC) is implied to power supplied to the power grid of distribution side. In this paper a control mechanism is suggested to maintain the balance between the generated side and grid side of the distribution network. In order to achieve the goal, convention tool of stability is applied to the system under various condition of disturbance and approves the effectiveness of the topology used for control and enhance the performance of the hybrid PV and wind generation system.
