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…

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…

BUILD YOUR OWN SOLAR POWER SYSTEM FOR HOME – CALCULATIONS FOR SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

Increasing demand of energy in the world is waiting to be replaced by clean and cost effective sources of energy. Clean and cheap sources of energy are available as wind power, solar power, hydropower, tidal power with initial cost for setup. In this article we are discussing how to build your own solar power system for home in order to fulfill energy requirements. SOLAR POWER Sun the power house of the universe is providing energy free of cost to us. Rays coming from sun have packets of energy called photons. Heat energy from sun is also used to produce electricity,…
