This thesis provides the design and simulation of a stand-alone photovoltaic (PV) system to ensure the load demands for a single residential in Houghton (MI) and Tucson (AZ). The fundamental activities of this study aim to model for particular stand-alone photovoltaic of components. Entire stand-alone design stages for used load data sets are carried out. Daily irradiance and load data are taken into consideration throughout the design stages. The Simulink program is developed to obtain simulation results to observe PV system and battery behaviors regarding various months which have most various irradiances throughout 30 days. Sizing of PV systems is conducted for Tucson and Houghton separately.
