Currently, the Colombian electricity sector presents great opportunities for the implementation of electric power generation systems from unconventional energy sources such as photovoltaic solar energy, these opportunities arise from the need to strengthen the national energy matrix to be able to supply the increasing demand for electrical energy of the country, at the same time as the generation system, mainly dominated by generation of hydroelectric energy, is strengthened in front of environmental crises such as those experienced in the past. With this as a reference, the present work carries out a study for the implementation of micro-grid with photovoltaic generation systems and batteries for residential use, within the context of the actual Colombian electricity market, focused on the city of Cúcuta, Norte de Santander. Developing for this purpose a model of the microgrid in Simulink from MathWorks, and evaluating its performance for two particular case studies.
