In this paper, generalized Hirota Satsuma coupled KdV system is solved with tanh method and q-Homotopy analysis method. New fractional derivative definition called “conformable fractional derivative” used in the solution procedure. Tanh method with conformable derivative firstly introduced in the literature. By the graphics of analytical and approximate solutions, it is shown that, both methods provide an effective and powerful mathematical tool for solving nonlinear PDEs containing conformable fractional derivative.
