Optimization and Simulation of Solar Photovoltaic cell using HOMER: A Case Study of a Residential Building

Mohit Jain, Neha Tiwari

: In most developing countries, the main solution for the sustainable electricity generation and supply is dependent on the proper utilization of renewable solar energy. For the solution to overcome dependency on the fossil fuel based energy, this paper deals with the optimization of the solar photovoltaic cell for a residential building of Malviya Nagar, Jaipur (India) that has total roof area of 576 m2 which comprises of 16 flat. The whole system of photovoltaic cell is optimized and simulated by using HOMER simulation tool. The optimization result gives that total 160 kw PV cell is required and the cost of electricity generation would be $0.184.
