Solar home systems are a prevalent method to enter the electrification ladder, and may gain even more popularity as the load diversity increases, or when they can be adopted into projects in which they can be extended into larger electrical networks. DC power quality needs to be regarded if such future perspectives are to become a durable reality. This paper discusses the need for power quality in solar home systems, proposes a methodology for researching it, and illustrates potential issues for solar home systems by an example.
