The utilization of a microgrid with a photovoltaic (PV) and wind generation system presents a challenge due to their voltage and power output variations. This problem is majorly addressed within the converter section of the microgrid using maximum power point tracking (MPPT) algorithms and voltage regulation strategies. This paper presents an interleaved boost converter (IBC) modeling and voltage control using a hybrid adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system-proportional plus integral plus derivative (ANFIS-PID) controller for an off-grid microgrid. The modeling used the interleaving technique to obtain the microgrid’s transfer function (TF) and case study simulation models within MATLAB and Simulink environments. The performance of the ANFIS-PID controller, which regulates voltage in the microgrid, was compared to that of the traditional proportional integral (PI) controller. Results indicated that the hybrid ANFIS-PID controller performed better than the PI controller in terms of reduced settling time, overshoot, rise time, and the ability to address the nonlinear dynamics of the microgrid.
