The share of electricity generation based on clean, inexhaustible and continuous energy sources, such as solar and wind, in total energy production, is rising day by day due to its significant advantages such as having the less negative impact on global climate and environmental pollution and not requiring fuel for energy production. It is reported that commercial and residential buildings correspond to about 20.1% of the world energy consumption, so it is necessary to provide energy needs of buildings with hybrid renewable energy systems. When using non-continuous energy sources such as solar panel and wind turbines, it is important to ensure ensuring a stable and quality power flow to the building while the power demands of building show very sharp variability. This work presents a voltage control system using fractional-order operators in the smart residential building-integrated hybrid renewable power plant (solar + wind). In this research article, fractional-order proportional-integral/proportional-integral-derivative controllers are proposed on a synchronous frame for a pulse-width modulation based three-phase voltage source inverter in residential building-integrated solar panel and wind turbines system (building-integrated photovoltaic/wind turbine system) in order to improve the quality of injected voltage to building. When comparing the effect of closed-loop voltage control system with integer order controllers (proportional-integral and proportional-integral-derivative) on the power quality at the building distribution by analyzing the simulation results for proposed case study, use of fractional-order voltage controllers for nonlinear system such as building integrated with hybrid renewable sources is more suitable than using integer order voltage controllers.
