The integration of hybrid energy storage system (ESS) with PV has been considered an effective solution for PV power smoothing, e.g. the hybrid Ultracapacitor (UC)-Battery storage system. This paper proposes a fuzzy-logic-based adaptive power management system for smoothing PV power output, which manages the power sharing between the UC and Battery system. In this method, the real-time system dynamics are reflected in the adaptive control parameter settings. At the same time this method effectively considers the characteristics and operational constraints of the energy storage devices, e.g. SOC limit, charge/discharge current limit, etc., in order to sustain the system operation. A hybrid PV/UC/Battery power system is modeled by Matlab/Simulink. The simulation studies are performed to demonstrate the effectiveness and advantages of the proposed control method in PV fluctuation suppression, sustainable system operation, energy storage performance.
