In this research, the annual energy consumption of a private house in Libya is presented. Using the load data, the design of a photovoltaic system (PV) has been done using HOMER Pro. The designed system contains 26 PV panels of 330W each, 32, 12V, batteries and a 5.61kW inverter. The system analysis illustrates that such a system can meet all load requirements of a private house in Libya. MATLAB/Simulink has been used to simulate the dynamic model of the designed system. The simulation results show that the system can provide a stable voltage and frequency for the proposed load and its variations.
