Sponsor:Gary Hubbard

Mentor:Prof. Olga Lavrova

Project Description

  • Design and simulate the electrical system of the net zero house.

    • Generate schematics for AC and DC power systems

    • Energy independent and self-sustainable system.

    • System will be grid-tied

    • Home energy monitoring system

  • Bill of Materials and Engineering Report.

    • Generate a list of materials required to complete the build.

    • Include extensive research on materials/appliances for the most cost/energy-effective choice.

    • Calculate an accurate estimate of the cost of the entire electrical system.

Team Members Responsibilities

Gavin Novotny

  • Project Manager

  • Researcher

  • System Analysis

Nakprat Anan

  • Load Calculation

  • System Simulation

  • One-Line Diagram


  • Power Consumption Calculation

  • System Schematic

  • Bill of Materials


We aim to electrically describe the home detailed in the provided floor plan such that it has zero net energy consumption.


The results of our work will allow for the construction of a home that exemplifies the capabilities of sustainable technologies.

What makes Net Zero Home Electrical a worthwhile senior project?

  • Familiarity with industry standards

  • Experience with AutoCAD and HOMER

  • Awareness of available renewable technology

Sponsor and Mentor Involvement

  • Sponsor: Mr. Gary Hubbard

    • Funds

    • Motivation

  • Mentor: Professor Olga Lavrova

    • Technical Expertise

Major Milestones

May 7th:

Final Report and Final Presentation Complete

February 6th:

Schematics Approved by Gary Hubbard

November 27th:

Detailed Design Description Complete


1- Electrical schematics that the customer can submit to The City of Albuquerque and the Public Service Company of New Mexico (PNM) for approval.

2-Bill Of Materials (BOM).

3- A simple user manual/engineering report.

4- House has zero net energy consumption.

Biggest challenges & concerns were listed as bullets & briefly described

  • Our schematics get rejected from PNM.

  • Getting our BOM in the designated budget

  • Cooling.

  • Electric Car.

  • Some of the other concerns could be associated with the structural layout.

  • Get most of our appliances to run on DC.

Tasks planned for the next month (or so) after the Presentation were briefly listed

  • Generate our schematics

  • submit to PNM for approval.
