In this paper, we propose an efficient design along with modeling and simulation of a small scale water pumping system fed by a hybrid Photovoltaic- Fuel Cell (PV-FC) power system. An overview of the basic theory of such system along with their modeling and simulation package is presented. A switching Maximum Power Point Trucking (MPPT) control algorithm is applied to the proposed configuration. The main goal is to extract the maximum power from each hybrid power system component, Photovoltaic (PV) generator and Fuel Cell (FC) source. Some simulation results are given.
