Abstract: A simple but effective energy management system is described whereby the energy management ‎system is connected to the DC-link between an energy source such as photovoltaics and a ‎conventional DC to AC converter. The resultant system is much cheaper means of controlling the ‎energy system and offers additional utility in choosing how to use the energy generated. The ‎proposed system shares the distributed generation (e.g. PV) power between energy storage (ES) ‎and the grid/load such that the energy from PV will be stored in ES up to a predefined level and ‎the rest will be passed through the inverter to the load/grid. It also offers a selling scheme ‎according the energy demand from the local grid and level of the stored energy. ‎
