In this paper Simulink model is made with an energy storing element (battery) which provides energy during unavailability of solar irradiation. MATLAB /Simulink software is used for developing the model. The proposed system consist a PV-array of 100KW, a DC-DC boost Converter for MPPT which is controlled by ANN, a bi-directional dc-dc converter for charging and discharging the battery, a battery, a three phase PWM inverter and a variable load. The battery used has characteristic of fast charging and slow discharging to provide reliable power supply for a standalone system. Three types of control are proposed in this paper namely the MPPT control for getting maximum and constant power output from PV array and the second control is proposed in bi-directional dc- dc converter to ensure the charging and discharging of the battery and last but not least is control of inverter to get constant voltage and constant frequency output with variable load.
