In this post we are going to discuss the factors affecting battery capacity in the off-grid /stand-alone Solar PV systems.FACT:The Battery bank is typically the second most expensive component in most photovoltaic systems , next to the PV Array.For a life cycle of twenty to thirty years of PV systems, the replacement and maintenance costs for batteries may be the … [Read more...] about Do You Know The Factors Affecting Battery Capacity in Solar PV Systems?
Primary Functions of Solar Battery:As a Solar Developer/ Consumer, do we really know the primary functions of Solar Battery - the most important but poorly understood component next to the PV module.Its time you learn about the primary functions of battery used in the Solar PV(Standalone) System. Note that the most important, but poorly understood component next to the PV … [Read more...] about Do you really know the primary functions of Solar Battery?
Please note that automobile batteries should not be used for Solar Photovoltaic(SPV) applications. Automobile batteries are meant for delivering high current for a short time. The battery is then quickly recharged. On the other hand, PV batteries operate in a different way and they should deliver over a long period and to be recharged slowly. So never use Automobile batteries … [Read more...] about Battery specifications of Solar Photovoltaic Applications
