Abstract: This paper discusses application of control of duty cycle for a non-isolated Cuk converter applied to provide continuous low ripple DC output from a hybrid renewable source consisting of a low power solar panel and windmill pair. The convention, in technology today is to utilise complex feedback loops to control output voltage with respect to sporadic swings in input. This paper provides simulational results for the efficacy of control methodology consisting of sliding the duty cycle and also a second order linear equation for the control characteristics with this method.
