Fossil fuels energy consumption leads to the major global problems such as shortage of energy and the climate changes and these problems can be solved by efficient use of renewable energy resources. Photovoltaic power generation is expanding rapidly because of the growing interest in the renewable energy resources. In this paper, detailed photovoltaic system is designed using MATLAB/SIMULINK. The combination of the PV array, dc-dc converter, and single phase dc-ac inverter is designed for the power generation. The battery bank or the other sources will be connected as a backup for the emergent situations. The main aim is to design such a system which provides constant supply to the ac load by considering various changes in the operating conditions of the PV array by SimPower system toolbox of the SIMULINK/MATLAB software.
