The number of connections with distributed generation has been growing steadily in Brazil, however, there is still a problem associated with it, the intermittence. Although a consumer with photovoltaic solar system (PVSS) is able to generate energy even when the grid is unavailable, the load is still susceptible to power outages given the intermittence of the source, one possible solution for this is the use of energy storage elements to supply part of the load, or even all of it when needed. In this study is analyzed, under the economic viability point of view, the impact of using a Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) coupled with a PVSS to supply a residential consumer in the event of power outages.
