Hybrid renewable energy systems are becoming widely prevalent in warships due to their reliability and acceptability. However, the uncertainty caused by using renewable energy resources is one of the primary challenges. Therefore, this paper investigates the implementation of a dynamic voltage restorer (DVR) with a new control strategy in a hybrid solar power generation system, including photovoltaic (PV) panels, diesel generators, battery storage, and conventional and sensitive loads. Furthermore, a new metaheuristic-based active disturbance rejection control (ADRC) strategy for fast and accurate DVR control is proposed. In this regard, a novel chimp optimization algorithm (ChOA)-based (i.e., ChOA-ADRC) strategy is suggested to increase the stability and robustness of the aforementioned hybrid system. The ADRC controller’s parameters are updated in real-time using the ChOA approach as an automatic tuning mechanism. In order to evaluate the performance of the proposed control strategy, the model is evaluated under two and three-phase fault case scenarios. Also, a comparison with the conventional PI controller has been performed to further evaluate the proposed method. Simulation findings reveal the suggested control strategy’s remarkable effectiveness in correcting fault-caused voltage drop and maintaining sensitive load voltage. Additionally, the results show that ChOA-ADRC presents a better dynamic response compared to conventional control strategies and increases the reliability of the hybrid power generation system.
