How to Install Solar Panels Wiring Fuses to Solar Panel DC Side
Alright, now we're ready to wire up our fuses and charge controller on the solar panel DC side. We've got our charge controller ready to go, we're just going to slip our BX wire, which I've actually insulated one of the tips, here, so we don't spark our machine. We'll feed that wire through a strainer leaf and put another little strainer leafer, here, on our BX. Tighten that up a bit. So you can see with that little spark there, that we do have power and we should use some.
Kind of fusing in here just so, if something goes wrong and the fuse blows out instead of the electronics. So, we've got a standard car fuse, this one's rated 40 amps at 32 volts. Really, all we need is about a 15 amp fuse, here, but this should give us some measure of protection. We're going to wire this through on the positive side. We've got a fuse holder that matches our fuse, and we'll just strip off a little bit of this insulation here. We'll form a little edge, a crimp, on this so it will loop under our device nicely. Got.
Screw terminals, here, and we're just going to slip that positive wire right under one of our terminals. In a larger installation this will be done in a separate box, but for a small one, this should be fine. Now, we need to run the other side of the positive wire to our charge controller and we need a little piece of wire for that. So now we've got our little jumper wire ready to go, we're going to strip that off and connect it to the other side of our fuse. Demo So.
How to Install Solar Panels Wiring for Solar Panels
Alright! We've got the panels mounted and now we're ready to connect the wiring that brings the power down to our charge controller which is located on the ground. We're going to be using this BX style wire which is just twelve gage wire with a wrapping of sturdy aluminum on the outside to protect it from the elements. Typically used in household wiring, pretty common at your home improvement center, twelve gage is adequate for a small system like this. Black wire for our positive connection, the white wire will be negative.
It's also called the neutral in an AC system. But for this we can use the white wire as negative, and then the green will go to our frame as a ground. So, we'll just strip a little bit of wire off here. We've got our DC wires already marked coming from the panels. Red, positive and white is negative. So we'll follow that here, again, and strip these wires down. Special wiring comes out of these panels. It's USE rated versus THHN for instance. And this USE wire is UV stabilized so it can actually be out in the sunlight for many years without.
Degrading. We're using the shielded wire here could be in different styles of conduit or even a UV rated wire for a small installation like this. And your bigger grid type connections, all this can be in conduit and the wire choices would be a little more limited because of the high voltages concerned. But here, twelve to forty volts, we're not really as concerned with that as we might be. Still, it's nice to have everything solid. We're going to use our linesmen pliers here to get a nice solid twist on our positive wires and a little wire nut on top of that, snug.
It down. We've got our negative wire here, and you notice I didn't strip these both at the same time. Even through it's only 40 volts, you can still get a pretty decent shock off of these panels. So, it pays to keep the wires separate. In fact, at the other end here, we're not quite ready to make this connection, we should connect down at the bottom first before making this wire completely hot, just for safety. So now, let's leave this for a moment and go down and wire up our charge controller here in the laundry room.
HOW TO KEEP CAR BATTERY HEALTHY AND CHARGED WITH SOLAR CELLS AUTO RAM TRUCK BAT POWER CHARGER
Hi everyone, this is geRAMicc85 and today i want to show you the new solar cells on my Dodge Ram 1500. I haven't been driving a lot with my truck over the last long and cold winter and I guess that's why my car battery died. Now, the battery was only 3.5 years old and I didn't want to replace it already but I had to. So I decided to do something to increase the lifespan of the new battery. I mounted tree 12 Volts epoxy resin solar cells onto the truck bed cover. I used silicone to glue them on securely. The cells are only.
A few millimeters think so that I can still open the Bak Flip cover without hitting the cells. I had to drill two small holes for the positive and negative wires. The wires run underneath the folding cover into the corner of the truck bed. The maximum output of the cells is 0.4 Amps. So whenever the battery is not fully charged or for example the radio is used with the engine off, the solar cells will fill the battery back up and provide it with a good maintenance charge. From the truck bed the wires run underneath.
The truck to the front into the engine compartment. I installed a charging regulator right next to the new battery which keeps the power from flowing backwords and also avoids overcharging the battery. The regulator has two LED indicators, one for charging and one for battery full. The green one is on right now showing that the battery is fully charged. The new battery that I've got is a 100 Amp hours car battery from Battery Industry Germany. It was the biggest battery that I could find that would fit into the spot. Thank you very much for.
Power Your Entire Home Without Wires!
This episode of DNews is proudly brought to you by Subaru. BY TESLA WE'VE GOT IT! Wireless electricity might be coming to a home near you. y'know. Someday. Greetings programs, Trace here for DNews. In 1897, Nikola Tesla asexual genius and inventor extraordinaire wanted to QUOTE turn the whole world into a giant wireless dynamo. He was awarded a patent in 1907 for wireless electricity but then the Great War began and the whole thing was lost to history. Now, over a century later, researchers at MIT created wireless power transmission which.
Could realize his dream! Sort of. While Tesla was trying to power cities, this transmits wireless power around your house! Your phone, car, television, laptop, game console, controllers, remotes, toaster and every lightbulb in every frickin' lamp could all be powered by magnetic resonators. The Faraday Law of Induction describes how an electromagnet creates a magnetic field. When an electrified coil of wire is wrapped around a metal rod, the metal magnetizes. Similarly, when you pass a magnet THROUGH an unpowered coil of wire, the magnet creates electricity. Physics is awesome.
Researchers at MIT found a way to turn simple physics into a wireless way to transmit electricity using a similar technology to WiFi. By plugging in a resonator to the alternating current outlet in your wall, the device creates a magnetic oscillation. The magnetic field of the resonator is large enough to mingle with nearby coils installed in the walls and floors of your house and ultimately into every device and BOOM wireless power. One magnetic coil influences another and another all over the house. It's like the barking chain in.
101 Dalmatians! MIT spun off the technology into a funny named company called WiTricity. The system can already power televisions, cell phones and keep their special AA batteries fully charged all at the same time! To be honest, induction charging has been around for a while, as has wireless power transmission. Radio waves are wireless power, the pads you can buy to charge your cell phone, mouse or game controllers use wireless power, but this is a bit different. The ones we have now use nearfield induction and this blows it into a whole new proportion.
The problem with any of these systems, is the efficiency. Magnetic fields have to be relatively closeby to pick up other magnetic fields. The MIT researchers were able to power one 60 watt light bulb from 2 meters away but it was only 45 efficient. So they put in 133 watts to power a 60 watt bulb. Not awesome though according to the researchers, this system is 1 million times more efficient than the ones already on the market. and the CEO of WiTricity says it's 1,000 times more efficient than a battery!.

Why Teslas Powerwall Battery Is Amazing
All of humanity just won a really important victory in our battle to lower the CO2 emissions that are causing climate change. Tesla CEO Elon Musk introduced the world to the Powerwall, a wallmounted battery for your house which aims to accelerate our transition to clean solar and windpower. Before the powerwall, there was no way to store the energy generated from the panels that capture sunlight on our roofs. So during the day they could give you the power you needed, but at night, you had to rely on the grid, which gets most of its.
Electricity from coal, natural gas, and nuclear reactors. There had been some early home batteries out there, but nothing that was nearly this affordable. But Tesla, which has built thousands of large, lithiumion battery packs for its growing electric car business, was able to produce a similar battery for buildings at a scale that dropped the production costs dramatically. The lowest capacity model will cost just $3,000. And this is the first generation of the productbefore Tesla's even completed building its massive new Gigafactory, or any real competitors have entered the market, events that will surely push the price down.
Even further, while increasing the energy storage capacity of the Powerwall. Here's how it works. When the sun is out, solar panels will power your house and charge the Powerwall at the same time. And when the sun goes down, this charged battery will kick in to meet most or all of your electricity needs until the sun comes back up again the next morning. This is gamechanging. More and more people will go completely offgrid. Every building whether it's a home, office, business, warehouse, factory they can all.
Install solar panels and some Powerwalls and instantly see their fossil fuelgenerated electricity needs drop significantly. Not every building will be able to go completely solarpowered, but most will get pretty close, especially as our appliances become more and more energy efficient. And it gets even better. The powerwall will be connected to the Internet and the rest of the energy grid. Here in Southern California, and most other heavily populated places, the electricity company charges us a lot more when we use electricity during peak timethat's in the afternoon and early evening when the temperatures are warmest and most of us are.
Home and still awake. The Tesla battery is smart, and knows when electricity is cheapest, so that's when it will draw from the grid to charge itself. And then, during peak time when you need electricity, the battery will power the house. Sometimes, you'll be able to sell back unused power to the utility company during peak time to even make a profit. It's basically going to make each individual building its own power station. Overnight, Tesla seems less a futuristic car company, and more like the man who inspired the company's name, a revolutionary electricity engineer named Nikola.

Samlex Evolution Series InverterCharger Product Overview
Hi, I'm Amy from the altE Store. We're going to take a look at the Samlex Evo Invertercharger family. It is an allinone solution, a pure sine wave inverter, a multistage battery charger, and a transfer switch. The Evo invertercharger outputs 120V AC 60 Hertz for use in North America and other locations It's designed to be used as either off grid inverter or use a battery backup to the grid or generator. It can accept input from the grid, a generator, or a solar charge controller to charge a battery bank,.
And can all be connected at the same time. The unit will automatically switch between power sources as they become available ensuring the batteries are charging efficiently and your house or RV is powered without delay. For example, when you lose power, the auto transfer switch will switch to battery inverter mode to power your refrigerator, sump pump, lights, whatever. Meanwhile the solar panels will be recharging your batteries during the day. When the grid power comes back up, your appliances automatically returned to grid power, and if you want the grid can simultaneously charge your batteries.
Back up for future use. Or if you prefer, you can use only the solar power to charge them backup. Note that it does not come with a builtin solar charge controller, you connect the output of your own charge controller to the Evo. There are four models. The EVO 2212 for 2200 watts and a 12 volt battery bank, the 3012 for 3000 Watts 12 volts, 2224 for 2200 watts 24 volts, or the 4024, 4,000 watts 24 volt battery bank. All of the EVO models are able to handle.
Momentary surge three times their continuous Power Rating, to power equipment like a pump, a fridge, compressor, or something that has a high startup surge. The conformal coated circuit board dampens vibration and protects it from corrosion and high humidity environments or marine salt air. There is an optional remote control for configuration and monitoring. It's 12 34 inches by 16 inches by 8 inches high, and depending on the model weighs between 59 and 64 pounds. ETL listed to UL standards 1741, 458 with marines supplement, and to CSA 107.1,.
