Solar power is a free source of energy. you can use this free and unlimited energy source to work the electrical appliances in your house and at the same time, you can charge your battery too. You can also save money by not using the electricity that you were using for these two things. To use solar power, you need to install a solar power system in your house. There are three types of solar system DC system, offgrid and ongrid solar system. In this tutorial, we will understand how offgrid solar power system works. Offgrid.
Solar system is an independent system that minimally utilizes the electricity coming from the power station. It converts the solar energy into electricity and works the load in your house while charging the battery. In an offgrid solar system, mains and solar charge controller are inbuilt. With the help of solar charge controller, you can charge the battery connected with the system with solar power and run the load in your house as well. When solar power is not available, you can run the appliances with the help of.
Mains. you can easily connect the offgrid solar system with the solar panel and can use free solar power to the maximum. Brainy Eco can run with both mains and solar power. In an offgrid system, there are many smart working conditions to run the load in your house and charging the battery. Now we have connected 300 W panel in parallel with the system. Along with this, you can also install 150 AH or 1800 W battery. Let us assume the appliances in your house like the fan, bulb or TV which you want to run with free solar.
Energy, you have connected them to brainyeco. this smart solar home ups will run all these appliances very easily and can intelligently charge the battery as well. Let us understand this in detail. Condition number one Let us assume that the solar offgrid system is getting 300W solar power from 300W solar panel and the electrical appliances in your house that you want to run through solar energy will require 200W power. So in this condition, the system will use 200W out of 300W to run the load and the remaining 100W will be used.
To charge the battery. in this condition, we can see that offgrid solar system will first focus on running the appliances with free solar energy and then will focus on using the remaining energy to charge the battery. You can see here that to get both these work done, solar power is enough. That is why this smart offgrid system does not use mains supply which helps you save on electricity bill. Condition number two 300W solar panel is only producing 200W power and you are still running 200W appliances. The offgrid system.
Will use the entire energy to run these appliances. in this condition, the battery will not get charged but will also not get discharged. In this condition also, the mains supply will be cut. Condition number three 300W solar panel is generating 100W solar power and you are running 200W appliances. You might be thinking that this offgrid system will take remaining 100W from mains and run it. But that is not the case. You have connected an 1800W battery with the offgrid system which was getting charged by solar power. In this.
Condition, the appliances will run by taking 100w from the battery and not mains. in this condition, 1800W battery will discharge slowly by 100W. After understanding all the conditions thoroughly, we have come to the conclusion that an offgrid solar system utilizes solar power to the maximum and uses it to run free solar power and charge the battery effectively and hence saves your electricity bill. In an offgrid system, how and when the mains system gets connected has different conditions. As you can see in this condition, the 1800W.
Battery connected to the system is slowly getting discharged by 100w because the power received by the solar panel is not enough to run the load. In the first condition when the battery’s reserve will remain 70%, the mains will get connected to the system. This condition is very beneficial for those who want to keep more reserve in their battery so that when solar and mains both are unavailable or there is frequent power cut in their area, then they can run the appliances in their house with the reserve for a longer time.
How Solar DC System Works with DC Lights Fan Panel TV and Battery
Solar power is a free source of energy. you can use this free and unlimited energy source to run the load in your house and can also charge batteries. The electricity that you were using for both these work, you can save money on that. To use solar power, you need to install solar power system in your house. There are three types of solar power systems DC system, On grid and Off grid solar system. In this tutorial, we will understand how DC system works. DC system is an innovative and environmentalfriendly home lighting solar solution. It is especially.
Designed for areas where there are frequent power cuts or areas where electricity is not at all available. Before understand DC solar system, it is very important to understand what is DC or direct current. There are two types of electric current Alternating current or AC and direct current or DC. An electric power house produces AC. The supply coming from power station to your house is AC. The appliances at home like TV, fan, light are normally AC. The electricity created by sun and the power stored in battery is DC. You.
Will be surprised to find out that if you install dc power system rather than the ac power used in your house, then you can save around 70% on electricity as compared to AC. Not only this but if you run DC appliances from the battery that you were using to run the AC appliances in your house, then you will get three times more backup from the battery. You don’t believe it? But this is true. To know the benefits of using DC power and disadvantages of using AC power, we will have to understand the waveform. As we saw,.
Ac means alternating current which means current and voltage keeps changing directions. so the waveform of AC supply in one cycle will alternate from positive to negative. DC means direct current which means current and voltage are flowing in the same direction. The waveform of DC supply never flows in the negative direction which means that DC supply has minimum loses so that DC appliances consume less power as compared to AC appliances. For example. let’s assume that we want to compare a 54 inches DC fan and a 54 inch AC fan. To calculate.
The power consumption of both these appliances, there is a simple formula p=vxi. if we want to calculate the consumption of DC fan, so we will put V as 12V in the formula because we are getting 12V DC from the battery and DC fan consumes around 2.08 A current. So according to the formula, P=12X2.08 = 25 W. Now if we calculate the power consumption of AC fan, we will put the value of V as 220V because we are getting 220V from mains and AC fan consumes around 0.36A current from mains. Then according to the formula, P=220X0.36.
= 80w. from this example, you can see that a 54 inch dc fan consumes 25w power whereas a 54 inch AC fan consumes 80W power which shows that if we use DC appliances, we can save 70% more on power and since power consumption is less, then backup time will increase. Due to 70% less power consumption, we get three times more backup and helps in saving on your monthly electricity bill. Now we will understand another benefit that comes out of running DC appliances on DC supply. Let’s assume that you have a normal inverter at house which.
Converts the ac supply coming from mains to dc supply and charges batteries and after that converts the DC supply stored in the battery to AC to run load. There is some energy loss in this AC to DC and DC to AC conversion because whenever one energy form is converted into another energy form, there is energy loss in the form of heat or switching loss. Therefore the load connected to the inverter consumes extra power. But these loses are not present in a DC system because in this system, there is no form of energy conversion.
Like ac to dc or dc to ac. this system charges the batteries with dc power only and runs the load also on DC power so that a DC system is way more efficient than a normal system. You must have understood the benefits of using DC power. Now, we will see how a solar DC system works. To install a DC system at home, you need solar panels, batteries and DC load. DC system uses the power coming from solar panels and intelligently charges batteries and runs DC load. This DC system is available in 800VA/12V. You can run three DC fans, one.
