dc.description.abstract This paper presents an overview of various methods used to minimize the fluctuating impacts of power generated from renewable energy sources. Several sources are considered in the study (biomass, wind, solar, hydro and geothermal). Different control methods applied to their control are cited, alongside some previous applications. Hence, it further elaborates on the adoptive control principles, of which includes; Load ballast control, dummy load control, proportional integral and derivative (PID) control, proportional integral (PI) control, pulse-width modulation (PWM) control, buck converter control, boost converter control, pitch angle control, valve control, the rate of river flow at turbine, bidirectional diffuser-augmented control and differential flatnessbased controller. These control operations in renewable energy power generation are mainly based on a steady-state linear control approach. However, the flatness based control principle has the ability to resolve the complex control problem of renewable energy systems while exploiting their linear properties. Using their flatness properties, feedback control is easily achieved which allows for optimal/steady output of the system components. This review paper highlights the benefits that range from better control techniques for renewable energy systems to established robust grid (or standalone generations) connections that can bring immense benefits to their operation and maintenance costs. en_US
