Abstract—This study aims to design and evaluate the grid-connected solar photovoltaic roof-top system for academic campus. A design and feasibility study of rooftop solar photovoltaic system project is conducted using tools- PVsyst and design software by inspecting project area by utilizing the NASA surface meteorology data through geographical coordinator of project place. The performance of the system was simulated using PVsyst software and the results were analysed. The analyses of the simulation results show that the project yields energy about 590MWh annually which is about 11% of total annual energy consumption in Pondicherry University. The process of electricity generation from solar photovoltaic system could saves ~42 tonnes of carbon dioxide. The proposed roof top grid connected system is analyzed for the academic campus.
