PerMod: Performance Simulation Model for PV-Battery Systems

PerMod was developed to assess the energy efficiency of grid-connected PV-battery systems for residential applications. The Matlab model can be used for power flow simulations of AC-, DC- and PV-coupled systems with a temporal resolution of one second over a period of one year. As a result, the overall efficiency of the PV-battery systems can be assessed with the System Performance Index (SPI).
