Prominence of Non-conventional energy sources is ever increasing in order to protect our deteriorating planet. This paper presents a standalone hybrid Wind/photovoltaic power generation system. Based on the availability of energy sources, this configuration allows the two sources to supply the load either individually or simultaneously. The proposed design is a fusion of Cuk and Sepic converters which eliminate the need of additional input filters to filter out the high frequency harmonics. Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) technique used is Modified Incremental conductance algorithm due to its high tracking accuracy and precise control under rapidly changing atmospheric conditions. A new parabolic prediction technique is applied for tracking the maximum power and Inverted sine PWM technique is applied for minimizing the harmonic contents in the output power. Simulation results were obtained using MATLAB/Simulink
