This paper presents a study on a stand-alone photovoltaic (PV) system to provide the required electricity for a single residential household in Sinai Peninsula of Egypt. The complete design of the suggested system is carried out, such that the site radiation data and the electrical load data of a typical household in the considered site are taken into account during the design steps. Also, the life cycle cost (LCC) analysis is conducted to assess the economic viability of the system. The… CONTINUE READING
