To every system there is a boundary to its procedure, thus, a system operating at higher than its operating limit will decrease its lifespan and that can contribute to failure of the arrangement. This leads us to assessments and calculations of standalone PV- system component based on the fi eld assessment and performances in an area in Ibadan, Nigeria. Using relevant formulae to calculate the requirement of each element that makes up the stand-alone PV-system.The battery as an essential component of the microgrid, battery life depends on both depth and rate of discharge.The resolutions of this report refl ect the abused of components involves in the initiation of the system especially the battery. The paper suggested an intelligent system to take care of the excess loads at a particular time, which alsowill take into account priority of the appliances at the time in relation to the capacity and state of the battery to control the appliances.
