Nearly 840 million people still lack access to electricity, while over a billion more have an unreliable electricity connection. In this article, the three different electrification pathways-grid extension, centralized microgrids, and standalone solar-based solutions, such as pico-solar and solar home systems (SHS)-are critically examined...

Almost a billion people globally lack access to electricity. For various reasons, grid extension is not an immediately viable solution for the un(der-) electrified communities. As most of these electricity-starved regions lie in tropical latitudes, the use of off-grid solar-based solutions like solar home systems (SHS) is a logical approach....

Access to electricity is a key actuator in order to tackle poverty in areas of limited resources. While the population without access to electricity has a decreasing tendency, still almost 1 billion people continue to live without this basic amenity. This thesis has been carried out at the company DC Opportunities as part of the rural...

Off-grid solar home systems (SHSs) currently constitute a major source of providing basic electricity needs in un(der)-electrified regions of the world, with around 73 million households having benefited from off-grid solar solutions by 2017. However, in and of itself, state-of-the-art SHSs can only provide electricity access with adequate...

With almost 1.1 billion people lacking access to electricity, solar-based off-grid products like Solar Home Systems (SHS) have become a promising solution to provide basic electricity needs in un(der)-electrified regions. Therefore, optimal system sizing is a vital task as both oversizing and undersizing a system can be detrimental to system...

Access to electricity still lacks for a fifth of the world's population. Most of the areas are in the remote rural location. Due to the off-grid location, policies, and other social factors, the grid expansion in these areas is not economically viable. Installing Solar Home Systems (SHS) is considered to be a promising immediate solution, given...

The rapid increase in the adoption of Solar Home Systems (SHS) in recent times hopes to ameliorate the global problem of energy poverty. The battery is a vital but usually the most expensive part of an SHS; owing to the least lifetime among other SHS components, it is also the first to fail. Estimating battery lifetime is a critical task for...

The past few years have seen strong growth of solar-based off-grid energy solutions such as Solar Home Systems (SHS) as a means to ameliorate the grave problem of energy poverty. Battery storage is an essential component of SHS. An accurate battery model can play a vital role in SHS design. Knowing the dynamic behaviour of the battery is...

The fact that the developing world struggles to cover even the most basics of needs, in contrast to the developed world, is tangibly connected to the lack of electricity. As many developing nations, especially the ones located in rural areas, face many difficulties to access the grid, alternative stand-alone solutions such as Solar Home Systems ...

Rural area electrification is one of the challenging issues to be solved by the engineer as it is often constrained by several issues such as geographical condition and underdeveloped infrastructures. As a result, off-grid DC system is expected to answer the need of electricity in these areas.<br/><br/>Solar Home System (SHS) as one of the...

Solar Home Systems (SHSs) can fulfil the basic energy needs of the globally unelectrified population. With costs as one of the biggest barriers for SHS uptake, optimizing the system size with energy needs is crucial. Where most solutions focus only on the present needs, this work also addresses the future energy needs. The methodology includes...
