Radwan, Amr

Description

This poster addresses the implementation of a DC microgrid powered by photovoltaic (PV) panels while utilizing battery storage. The system will provide reliable electricity access for off-grid locations. The proposed system is comprised of four main subsystems: PV array, maximum power point tracking (MPPT) converter, 12V DC battery bank, and three power electronic devices. These power electronic devices are an inverter, buck converter, and boost converter which provide the charging options of 120V AC, 5V DC, and 24V DC, respectively. Some intended loads for the system are DC irrigation pumps, LED lighting, electronic devices that utilize USB charging, and small audio systems. Photos of the components we have built so far are included in this poster. Simulation results for the final product are also presented and discussed.
