In this paper, we analyse a solar-based renewable energy system in a MATLAB / SIMULINK environment. The solar-plant was implemented with the help of the grid development with Unified Power Flow Controller in the load line. Micro-hydro technique was also incorporated into the system. The UPFC and its controllers are searched for on the system. To regulate line control, the suggested technique employs a genetic algorithm. According to the findings, AI is efficient in achieving the hybrid system is composed of the UPFC control and in driving loads to their terminal including superior real power. The available voltage was minimum &disorganized, and the THD in the current output was reduced as well.
