This paper reports on the development of a solar neighborhood microgrid concept for remote communities. It demonstrates some of the technologies that need to be incorporated into the microgrids formed from cellular-enabled solar home systems. The research covers the development of the specifications required for such a product as well as the DC/DC converter that emerges from those specifications. The paper presents a power sharing algorithm to control voltage at a common connection point and an algorithm for allowing multiple controllers to control the voltage at a common point of coupling.
