Abstract

In recent years, a densely populated country like Bangladesh has experienced severe electricity shortages. The use of the finite mineral resources to generate power is nearing its conclusion. So it's past time to switch to renewable energy sources like solar, hydro, biomass, wind, etc. Avoiding power outages in major cities is becoming more difficult. Generators and instantaneous power supplies (IPS) are commonly employed to combat this, however, they are unable to reduce the demand on mineral resources, as well as being inefficient and unreliable owing to significant fuel fluctuation. However, the country is located in a hotspot. Because of its long length of existence, sunlight may be employed as a stable supply of verse energy. Installing a rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) system is simple. However, it must be concerned about the high expense of installation. The major goal of this project was to construct a cost-effective solar PV energy system for an urban building to address power shortages and to replace expensive IPS. This device will be linked to practically every component of our system, including modules, charge controllers, inverters, and so on. This device will determine how the inverter will operate, how the batteries will be charged, and which power source the loads will be linked to.
