Abstract

Electricity demand is now the basic need for the current civilization in every moment. Especially for the developing countries such as Bangladesh has the energy crisis and is one of the challenging issues to progress the country future. Shortage of electric power generation causes a significant amount of load shading everyday. Lack of fossil fuel reservation is a global issue. In addition, fossil fuel based power generation is not also environment friendly. Considering all these barriers, a renewable on-grid power generation system can be a better option for Bangladesh. This paper presents the feasibility study of an on-grid solar power generation system for a typical house in Bangladesh. The load demand of a house in Dhaka city is taken as a case to perform this study. The proposed solar home system is simulated in HOMER and the detail analysis, system description and results are presented in this paper.
