Concern over the state that our planet is in as it continues to deteriorate is causing environmentally friendly solutions to become more popular than ever. Because of environmental concerns, green solutions are becoming increasingly popular. In this paper, a redesigned rectifier stage is applied to an example of a hybrid energy system. The load can be supplied by either of the two sources, based on how readily it can be met by the various sources of energy, in this configuration. In order to get rid of higher order harmonics, this fused converter with a Cuk-SEPIC, does not require any additional input filters to be installed. The presence of the harmonics has a negative impact on the generator's lifespan, heating issues, and overall performance.. Due to its fused rectifier with multiple inputs, the maximum power point tracking (MPPT) can be utilised whenever wind and sunlight are available to generate electricity. When it comes to wind and PV, we'll use an adaptive MPPT algorithm and a common perturb and observe procedure. The proposed system's operational analysis will be discussed in this paper. For the sake of emphasising the advantages of the circuit under consideration, simulation results are presented. When one energy source isn't able to keep up with the demand, another can step in to fill the gap. MPPT control has been proposed for a number of hybrid wind/PV systems, and in addition to that, the utilisation of rectifiers and inverters has been debated.
