Although electricity is a necessity for nearly everything in daily life, many developing countries are unable to provide easy access to this utility. Often times within these developing countries, many renewable energy sources exist that are readily accessible to these same people that don’t have access to electricity within their homes, such as solar energy. However, the nature of renewable energy is that most renewable energy lacks consistency in power delivery throughout the day. An example of this is that solar energy isn’t available during the night. These small communities are often comprised of people that are familiar with each other, which brings up the possibility of power sharing between families’ and friends’ houses. This project design and develop a Simulink/MATLAB model of DC House network for connecting multiple DC houses to allow for exchange of energy resources as well as energy storage. The model was then used to conduct feasibility study, investigate its operation, and determine its operating parameters.
