This paper discusses the development of new control and supervision method for the optimum operation of hybrid renewable energy system (HRES) connected to AC grid. The hybrid system consists of wind generator (WG), diesel generator (DG), and flywheel energy storage system (FESS). These subsystems are based on permanent magnet synchronous machines (PMSM) which are controlled by sliding mode control. A supervisor control is designed to determine the energy transfer type of flywheel energy storage system (charging / discharging / no transfer energy), to take decision on diesel generators ON/OFF status, and to determine the reference powers for these two subsystems. The supervisor inputs are the power requested by AC grid, the power generated by wind generator, and the energy stored in flywheel. The objectives of the control and supervision for hybrid renewable energy system are to satisfy the power requested by AC grid, to manage the energy transfer between hybrid system and AC grid, to optimize the use of wind energy, and to reduce fuel of diesel generator. The system is simulated with Matlab – Simulink software and it gave good results.
