A Simulation Study on Improving of Self-Consumption for Prosumers

Robert Wójcicki


The article presents an analysis of selected control algorithms for energy receivers in conjunction with the grid-connected photovoltaic systems in the Polish conditions, for a reduction of costs and the amount of electricity drawn from the grid. The author provides results of simulations using based on real data models consisting of a photovoltaic and household appliances such as fridge, washing machine and dishwasher.
