RAINWATER HARVESTING FOR BORE WELL RECHARGING

Water is an essential for all living organism. In fact no life is possible without water. Bore wells are the common source for water in rural as well as urban areas. In summers the water level decreases and at some water deficient areas, the bore wells give-up the supply and get dry. In our ecosystem the water cycle or hydrological cycle in which water carried out from lakes, oceans, rivers, ponds etc in the form of water vapors. These vapors forms cloud and again these clouds turn into rain and supply water. Thus rain water is the natural source of…

SOLAR CHARGE CONTROLLERS THE BATTERY LIFE ENHANCERS

Charge controllers, also known as charge regulators are an integral part of the solar power systems and are often termed as battery life enhancers. These devices limit the amount of current drawn and fed to the batteries bank, which stores DC energy from the solar panels. Life span of a battery is curtailed if overcharged and same is the case when current is drawn in an under charge condition. The charge controller circuit is intelligent enough to tackle both these situations by allowing or suppressing amount of charge to the batteries. In case of solar systems, Most 12 volts panels…

SOLAR INVERTERS – EFFICIENT AND ROBUST SOLAR POWER INVERTERS

Solar power is one of the most convenient and readily available form of renewable energy. Scientists have devised the methodologies and technologists have created the stuff employed for conversion of heat and light of solar rays into electricity available at our home outlets. Some specialized genre of semi conductor materials that exhibits photovoltaic effect i.e. these material produce direct current in response to incident light, are used in the fabrication of solar plates combined in the form of arrays. Each single plate is a combination of a huge number of solar cells with each cell producing voltage output in the…

LITHIUM ION SOLAR BATTERY – LITHIUM ION FOR SOLAR APPLICATIONS

Lithium Ion batteries are leading in wide applications for energy storage, especially in small portable devices. Lithium Ion battery started its journey in 1990s. Soon this battery gained popularity for various portable applications with its high power density and low self discharging nature as compared to Nickel Cadmium (NiCad/NiCd) and Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH). Lithium Ion considerably replaced the nickel cadmium and nickel hydride in small devices. Because of recycling convenience lithium ion batteries are also environment friendly as compared to NiCd and NiMH. Lithium Ion is a fast growing and widely accepted battery chemistry for various small applications. Recently…

BATTERY TYPES- TYPE OF BATTERIES FOR POWER STORAGE SYSTEMS

Battery types

Energy storage system is the backbone for any renewable energy power system. Not only a solar power system but every renewable energy system need an efficient, reliable, cost effective, safe, eco friendly and long lasting storage system. The storage system must be efficient as much as possible and capable to payback every cent paid for it. In this post we will discuss about solar battery options or Battery types suitable for solar storage system. Performance and durability of a storage system totally depends upon the batteries used for the purpose. A battery converts electrical energy into chemical energy and store…
