Abstract

this research work is carried out for the standalone PV system for a household in Anand in India. The rapid
population growth and increase in industrial activities necessitate the injection of solar photovoltaic technology into the
nation’s energy mix. Therefore, we made an attempt to design a standalone solar photovoltaic system for residential
application. For sustainability, reliability and accessibility of power, the use of stand-alone solar photovoltaic
technology is recommended. For this work we consider appliances which have consume direct current and alternative
current. The total load power of these appliances is 437.5 W. The array to load ratio determined as well as the daily
watt-hour load shows that the use of hybrid system in this design is not recommended. To power these appliances, 58
batteries in the battery bank with system battery capacity of 200 Ah. The use of stand-alone solar photovoltaic
technology is recommended for sustainability, reliability and accessibility of power.
