## Abstract

**:**

## 1. Introduction

- (1)
- The PV prediction model was designed based on mathematical modeling and cumulative data analysis. Historical data is classified as PV output data according to the weather and expressed as a generation rate, and other factors are not considered. The generation rate can predict the maximum output of the PV through a simple calculation.
- (2)
- Battery charge/discharge settings are determined based on predicted weather information and load patterns. In addition, the output error of load and PV can be compensated for by considering an operating margin. It has been validated as providing improved performance through simulation.
- (3)
- The method proposed in this paper utilized data from an actual PV–BESS system. The data of the installed PV was utilized, which is suitable for validating the simulation.
