## How to Fix Limiting Variable

%% Calculate the amount of energy in the system’s battery in each time step

for i = 2:length(timesteps)

excess_energy_kWh = E(i) – home_energy_use_kWh(i); % Calculate excess energy

if excess_energy_kWh > 0 % If excess energy is produced

battery_energy_kWh(i) = min(battery_energy_kWh(i-1) + excess_energy_kWh, battery_capacity_kWh); % Charge battery

else % If energy deficit

battery_energy_kWh(i) = max(battery_energy_kWh(i-1) + excess_energy_kWh, 0); % Discharge battery

purchase_from_grid_kWh(i) = -excess_energy_kWh; % Record grid purchase

end

end

%% Calculate how much energy you will need to get from the energy company

total_purchase_from_grid_kWh = sum(purchase_from_grid_kWh);

% Calculate how much money you would save over the hypothetical period

total_savings_with_solar_USD = total_purchase_from_grid_kWh * price_per_kWh_USD;

% Calculate how much money you would save if you didn’t use solar panels

energy_from_company_kWh = sum(home_energy_use_kWh);

% Use price_per_kWh_USD

savings_without_solar_USD = energy_from_company_kWh * price_per_kWh_USD;

As shown above, I’m trying to create a model solar panel energy and revenue predictor. The only problem I’m having is that the revenue I get is different from the actual revenue, with the error being in this battery section. The battery capacity is 14 kWh, and this section is needed as there are days when the solar panel doesn’t produce the required energy amount (home_energy_use_kWh). I’ve tried multiple ways to solve this, and none of them have worked. If needed, I can post the whole code and the datasheet. Thank you for your help.%% Calculate the amount of energy in the system’s battery in each time step
