Kalyankumar 2 1 Research Scholar, Vinayaka Mission Sikkim University, East Sikkim, INDIA 2 Former Vice-Chancellor, Vinayaka Mission Sikkim University, East Sikkim, INDIA -----------------------------------------------------------------------------***---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Abstract - Energy demand in Karnataka state is increasing, however the electric utilities failed to meet this load demand. Photovoltaic (PV) solar power plant is used for larger development of solar power generation. In a solar roof top system, the solar panels are installed on the roof of any residential, commercial, institution and industrial building. The solar roof top system may come up with storage facility using battery or grid connected. The roof top system with storage facility has a battery to store solar electricity and can be utilized during night when sunlight is not available. In this research paper, it is aimed at providing technical details of 1KWp with 1.5KVA off grid solar roof top power plant on turnkey solutions and Simulation analysis is carried out using PV Syst for Davangere city location and simulation results of energy output of PV module, energy supplied to the load and unused energy are presented Key Words : Grid, Roof top system, solar photovoltaic panel, solar radiation, Energy. 1. INTRODUCTION Solar energy is a clean, pollution free renewable source of energy. Karnataka state being located between 11° 40´ and 18° 27´ North latitude and the geographical location favors the harvesting and development of solar energy. Karnataka state is having 300 sunny days with good solar radiation of 5.4 to 6.2 KWh / square-meter /day. Davangere city comes under Karnataka state in India which is 250KM from the Bangalore, the capital city of Karnataka state. The yearly average solar radiation on horizontal surface of Davangere city is 5.24 KWh/m 2 /day at latitude of 14.4384 0 N and longitude of 75.956082 0 E [6]. Electric utilities are finding it difficult to meet rise in peak demand and as a result, most of cities and towns are facing severe electricity shortages. Most of commercial establishments use one or more diesel generator for back- up power. In order to utilize the existing roof space of buildings, the scheme proposes to promote rooftop solar PV systems on buildings to replace diesel generator sets. 2. OFF-GRID ROOF TOP SOLAR POWER PLANTS Solar PV cells converts sunlight to generate electricity through a photovoltaic process. There are two types of solar PV systems: standalone and grid connected.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
