Dynamic Modeling and Simulation of a Photovoltaic System for a House in Qassim, Saudi Arabia

F. Alharbi Saif and M. T. Iqbal
Abstract—This study presents a dynamic modeling of a photovoltaic (PV) system for a residential application using Simulink. The PV system designed here consists of 56, 300W, 24 V PV modules, 52, 200Ahr, 12V batteries, a maximum power point tracking (MPPT) charge controller and an 11 kW inverter to power a house. This paper proposes a boost converter; (MPPT) to be applied to the system. Additionally, varying weather curves data were implemented in the design to simulate potential conditions, namely radiation and temperature. A step-up transformer is used to achieve the house required voltage. The simulation results prove that such a PV system would work smoothly without grid connection at a location such as Qassim, Saudi Arabia.

Index Terms—PV system, modeling, renewable energy, MPPT, solar energy.
