Today’s power system network has become more complex and it has more responsibilities and challenges to provide secure, reliable and quality energy
supply to the communities. A small entity of electrical network known as Microgrid (MG) is more popular nowadays to enhance reliablity and secure level of energy supply, in case of any energy crisis in the utility network. The MG can also provide clean energy supply by integrating renewable energy sources effectively. The
MG with small scale solar photovoltaic (PV) power system is more suitable to provide reliable and clean energy supply for remote or urban communities in residential level. This paper presents the basic analysis study of stand-alone solar photovoltaic (PV) MG power system which has been developed with the aid of Matlab - Simulink software, on the basis of residential load profile and solar exposure level in a particular area of Geelong, Victoria State. The simulation result depicts the control behavior of MG power system with optimum sizing of PV (4.385 kW)and battery storage (480
Ah/48V) facility, fulfills daily energy needs in residential load level. This study provides a good platform to develop an effective and reliable stand-alone MG power system for the remote communities in the near future.
