French physicist “Edmund Becquerel” first discovered solar energy harnessed by the use of photovoltaic (PV) cells in 1839. This technology can be a single panel, or a string of PV panels, or a multitude of parallel strings of PV panels. Solar PV has no emissions and it is reliable and requires less maintenance. This project work is to model a standalone solar powered micro grid with an intelligent controller for controlling a hydraulically operated Solar PV System, which helps in unfolding the PV panels at site to where, the standalone Solar PV Power plant is transported and placed for power generation. The materials used for manufacturing PV cells include amorphous silicon, polycrystalline silicon, cadmium telluride, microcrystalline silicon and copper indium selenide.
