The objective of this paper is to sizing the solar power plant in standalone mode of operation. Based on the load survey and the utilization factor, the capacity of the plant is determined for battery sizing and PV sizing. PVSYST and C programming are used for the sizing of the solar PV power plant. A survey is also conducted about the requirement of customers regarding the solar power plant. Sri Ramakrishna Institute of Technology (SRIT) hostel mess is considered in this paper for the purpose of load survey and sizing of the solar power plant. The installation of solar PV power plant in SRIT hostel mess based on the design features developed in this work will ensure reliability of power supply to the hostel mess for preparation of food without any interruption. Future, the burden on the electrical network also will reduce to a large extent. This paper will be useful for the design and installation of PV power plant in a location suitable for such an operation replacing/supporting the conventional source.
