To manage power flow in homes, energy management is essential to optimize the residential load demand profile. In this, optimization load profile and the solar irradiance plays a major role for smart homes. The optimization period may be day/month/year. The main focus of the future homes is to get zero net energy, that is nothing but a zero electricity bill for homes. To enable zero net energy consumption and optimal power management for future homes, the direct current electric distribution systems (DC nano-grid) is an excellent choice because it is simple to integrate various types of renewable energy source to the electrical grid. However, integrating solar and EB sources and loads is simple and reliable. This paper proposes an integration of solar PV array of power 100 W and EB grid (230 V, 50 Hz) are connected to the load (either AC or DC load). The simulation has been done by using MATLAB/Simulink.
