A generic problem of distributed solar home systems (SHS) is the lifetime of the chemical storage battery. In this paper, a model of compressed-air energy storage (CAES) based SHS is developed and simulated to determine the size of the storage tank according to the required load and operating time. Industrial air motors and permanent magnet direct current generator specifications are used for simulation model. Other features include sizing of the storage tank and determining appropriate regulator settings to improve the system efficiency.
