Abstract

The objective of this thesis is to design and analyze DC bus load transients for solar stand-alone system in MATLAB/SIMULINK software. In this thesis a home is connected to a photovoltaic solar energy system instead of the conventional grid. Increased pollution and global warming caused by burning of fossil fuels and ever- increasing oil prices are motivating people to choose alternative energy sources such as this.
