Abstract [en]

The aim of this project is to nd the optimal size battery for an already installed PV system in a family house in Southern Sweden. First, the existing system is modelled and validated. Then a new model including a battery is built. In this model it is assumed that the aim of the battery is to maximize the self-consumption of the house. A sensitivity analysis is performed in order to study the inuence of the battery capacity on the electricity uxes between the house and the grid. The protability of the project is then investigated, considering the current tari schemes for thehouse and for the "average" Swedish house. Eventually the possibility of applying price-dependent control strategies to the battery is investigated.

The primary conclusion is that a battery installation is not protable for the studied house whether the incentives provided by the Swedish government are considered or not. Yet a subsidized installation would be protable for a house subject to the average Swedish electricity price. Another conclusion is that the current hourly volatility in the electricity price is not high enough to make reasonable the use of price dependent battery control strategies. Their use would lead to better economical performance, with respect to the simplest battery control strategy, in case of increased volatility.

Abstract [sv]

Malet av det har projektet ar att hitta batteri med den basta storleken for en existerande solcellssystem i en villa i Sodra Sverige. Forst, det existerande systemet modelleras och valideras. Sedan byggs en ny modell som innehaller ett batteri. I den har modellen antas att malet av batteriet ar att maximera sjalvkonsumption av villan. En kanslighetsanalys utfors for att studera inverkan av batteri kapacitet pa el ussmedel mellan villan och natet. Darefter, lonsamheten av projektetet unders oktes, med tanke pa den bentliga tarisystem for den utforskade villan och den "genomsnitt" Svenska villa. Slutligen, mojligheten att tillampa prisberoende batterikontrollstrategier undersoks.

Den primara slutsats ar att en batteriinstallation ar inte lonsam for den studerade villa, med eller utan bidrag. Anda en subventionerad installation skulle vara lonsam for ett hus som utsatts for genomsnitt svenska elpriset. En annan slutsats ar att den nuvarande volatilitet i elpriset ar inte tillrackligt hog for att gora lamplig den anvandning av prisberoende batterikontrollstrategier. Deras anvandning skulle leda till battre ekonomisk prestanda, med avseende pa den enklaste batteristrategi, om prisvolatilet okningar.
