The use of electricity is growing exponentially as we have more devices and gadgets to feed with electricity. We have multiple sources to produce electricity, including coal, diesel, bio-diesel and hydropower; the current situation requires preventive measurements against global warming. Private companies and homeowners have equally shown great interest in solar technology. The result is an increase in the use of rooftop solar systems during the last five years. The two most crucial components in a solar system are the solar system and the electric inverter. The two jointly support each other in electricity generation and conversion from direct current to alternate current.
Solar System Components
Solar systems are the most preferred type of renewable energy source and are a hot favourite in Australia due to their supporting climate. On average, Australia receives nine hours of sunlight during a day and 220 to 270 sunny days a year for different cities and locations. All these factors are hot favourites to nourish solar technology. The components of solar systems are:
Solar panels are the crucial and basic element of a solar system to catch the sunlight and turn it into electricity. Deep Cycle Systems has the best rated monocrystalline solar panels that are highly efficient. Solar panels have different ratings and capacities. For a small setup, 12v solar kits are recommended. 24v solar arrays are suitable for a medium size project, while the 48v solar plates can entertain gigantic power demands. A small project may be marked with a 2000 watts capacity to produce using solar panels, while a medium solar project could be anything under 10kw.
Batteries are helpful when you want to store the solar electricity for use when solar panels can’t pull the required amount of power. We manufacturer deep cycle lithium-ion batteries that are known for their profound discharge ability. Typically, the lithium batteries are allowed for a 90% discharge of their total capacity, i.e., a 50ah lithium-ion battery can provide a discharge rate of 45ah. A 50ah lead-acid battery is recommended to get a maximum of 25 ampere-hours output, as any further discharge could damage the battery cells. These solar lithium batteries store the energy generated by solar panels. A LiFePo4 battery has the following unique features:
- Low memory effect
- High energy density make lithium cells lightweight
- Deep discharge ability
- Longer lifespan
Inverters are crucial in the distribution of electricity to our electric appliances. Without an electric inverter, you can’t use stored energy, as home electric appliances require AC supply, while solar panels produce DC electricity. So either you have to purchase and replace all your existing AC appliances with DC appliances, or you can have a solar inverter to make life easy.
On-grid inverters are useful for city residents where the local grid provides electricity. An on-grid inverter helps you control the electricity and energy cost significantly by utilizing solar electricity. Further, you will get back up to escape power breakouts due to shortfalls or any other reason. Our automatic inverter will take control of your home to supply instant electricity without any disruption.
Off-Grid Solar inverter
An off-grid solar inverter is ideal for RVs, boat owners, and those who are living away from the hassle and bustle of city life. The off-grid solar system is an affordable solution to replace the generator, which requires diesel or gasoline to generate electricity.
