Aim: Design of solar powered electric grid to supply reliable electric power solely using solar energy.
The design may make use of a electricity storage component e.g. (battery etc.) The load may be 3 phase or single phase (for industrial or residential power consumption) and is varying with time as consumption varies. Solar radiation vary's during the day (can be assumed constant in morning time)
Please provide a model for simulation.
