This project presents a study into the optimization of the interaction between a photovoltaic system, an electric vehicle and a battery pack that are emplaced in a grid-connected family household. A Home Energy Management System is built in a MATLAB environment with the aim of minimizing the total energy cost, by minimizing the energy consumption from the grid, especially at peak hours, while satisfying the dwelling energy demand and the electric vehicle energy requirements. The designed algorithm is also used to determine the optimal parameters of the home battery energy system. Different scenarios with a variable range of values for some of the system parameters (photovoltaic array size, battery energy price, time horizon and electric vehicle mode) have been considered in order to evaluate the effect on the final results.
