Abstract : During the recent few decades, researchers as well as politicians are more concerned with the concept of low energy buildings. This is not a new concept since old houses and historical places were built taking into consideration the local climatic conditions. Today such approach is gainingmore attention worldwide and new codes and regulations are introduced in this regard.
In this work, a comprehensive techno-economic feasibility study of a new small independent house (with a total area of about 100 m2) in Amman is conducted using a commercial software package for calculating heating and cooling loads (HAP). A special tailored program to examine the techno-economic feasibility was developed for this purpose. This house is totally dependent on solar energy for supplying electric power and thermal energy. Consequently, gaseous emissions, including GHG, were reduced significantly.
It was found that, with using appropriate energy storage system, there is no need to withdraw electrical power from the grid nor buy fuels for heating purposes. The expected monthly savings in energy cost may reach JD 260 with a payback period of about 8 years.

Abstract : The motion in control equipment and digital control development, the DG structures can be workable controlled to overhaul the system operation with upgraded PQ at PCC. The use of vitality devices based equipment and non-coordinate burdens at PCC deliver symphonious streams, which debilitate the thought of vitality. A converter is being used which can be used both as a rectifier and an inverter. In this paper centered on the network interfacing inverter can competently be used to perform the following critical capacities to transfer of dynamic strength reaped from the sustainable assets (wind, sun-oriented, and so forth.); Stack responsive electricity request bolster; Current sounds remuneration at PCC; and Current unbalance and unbiased modern remuneration if there be an occurrence of 3-stage 4-wire framework. In addition, with fantastic manage of lattice interfacing inverter, all four dreams can be subtle both exclusively or at the identical time. The PQ requirements at the PCC can along these strains be entirely stored up inside the utility fashions except greater gear cost. Keywords : Power Control System, Smart Grid.
