Sukam solar dc home lighting system. this is a system that utilizes solar power to charge your batteries. You can install this system in the areas where frequent power cuts is a problem or where electricity is not at all available. After installing this system, you can solve your electricity problems. There are two chargers inbuilt in solar DC system. First one is 10 amp MPPT solar charge controller which utilizes solar power and efficiently charges your battery and second is grid charger which utilizes mains supply and charges the.
Battery, if need be. this is the front panel of sukam solar dc system. there is a lcd display provided here where you can see messages like battery voltage or solar charging on or off. There are three LEDs provided below this Mains charging on, Solar charging on and Low battery. This is the side panel of solar DC system. There are two low terminal blocks here and after that, battery terminal lock. You can connect the wires coming from the battery here. After that, there is a DC fuse provided here of 30 amp. DC fuse is provided.
For protection. if your battery’s connections are reversed, the dc fuse will blow up and the system will be protected. This is the other side panel of solar DC system. Here DC input terminal block is provided and PV terminal input block is provided on the other side. You will connect the wires coming from solar panel here. Apart from this, an AC fuse is also provided of 6.5 amp. This AC fuse is provided for protection. If mains input current becomes more than 6.5 amp, this AC fuse will blow and the system will be protected.
Apart from this, there is a mobile charging usb port provided in solar dc system. you can connect your phone here and charge it. Now we will understand the installation of solar DC system. We have connected the system to battery and here we have connected the DC system to 120W/12V solar panel. You can connect 120W DC load to DC system. If there isn’t enough power from the solar, then you can connect mains to the system and charge the battery from mains. Now we will understand the working of solar DC system. First solar.
Panels will input the uncontrolled solar energy into solar dc system. after that, mppt solar charge controller which is inbuilt in solar DC system, will control the uncontrolled power to charge the batteries. After this to run the load, solar DC system will take power from the battery and will run the load. If the power coming from solar panel is insufficient to run the load, then the solar DC system will use the mains supply. After the power comes from mains supply, solar DC system will convert AC to DC and will charge the batteries.
For installation, first we will connect the system to the battery. we will connect the batteries to the system with the help of 8 to 10mm wires. We have connected the battery wires to the battery terminal block. We have connected positive wire in the positive terminal and negative wire in the negative terminal. After installing the system with the battery, we will now see what is shown on the display. The display is now on. We can see SuKam Welcomes You on display. After that, Hybrid Solar Homelight System is displayed. After.
That, you can check the battery voltage which is 12.4v. if by mistake, the battery connections are reversed, then the DC fuse will blow. To see this practically, we have connected the negative wire to the positive terminal and positive wire to the negative terminal. Now we can see what is the effect in DC fuse. The fuse is now burnt. Now we will replace a new fuse in the system and will correct the wire connections of the battery. We have made the correct wire connections. We have connected positive wire to the positive terminal.
DIY Portable Solar Power Generator Part 1
Hey , i would like to show you my portable solar power generator that I recently built. I want to thank all of the folks who posted their projects on YouTube previously, they were great inspirations for this one. I consider this a mediumsize and moderately priced portable solar power generator. It generates 110 amp hours and costs,.
Including the 100 watt solar panel that’s used with it about $950 dollars total cost. It’s portable, but I would say that it’s not meant for backpacking. It weighs about ninety pounds. This particular unit I built to use on my cruising boat I wanted something that was portable so that when I sold the boat and upgraded.
I could take the system out and take it with me. i also do some tent camping and it will be used for that purpose as well. The system offers again 110 amp hours, obviously the starting point is to get some power into this .so for demo purposes today I’m using a small 27 watt.
Solar panel and i’ll show you how all this mates and how the whole thing works. Come around to the back of the system and you will see what I’ve installed is a 2pin SAE port that allows the energy from the solar panel to come into the system.and once that is coming into the system it is going to a.
Solar charge controller that is under the top. we’ll get back to that in just a bit. The case itself is a Plano sportsman’s case .was about twentyfive dollars, it is quite rugged is much more sturdy than a typical Rubbermaid container by all means but was quite affordable and again is to be used.
Inside a cabin on a boat so it doesn’t need to be perfectly weatherproof but this is I think quite weatherproof as it’s built. On the front, after we get some power into the batteries we’re able to provide power through a number to accessory ports, we’ve.
Got 12 volt on the side I did install a 12volt power indicator. It’s reading about 13.4 volts going in right now. We’ve got USB power here, a 5 volt 1 amp and a 5 volt 2.1 amp USB port, of course a 12volt outlet here and on the AC side.
What i’ve installed, you’ll see how that works in a bit, is an AC voltmeter and ammeter and that gives me an indication that power is on here and also is very important because the ammeter tells me how many amps I’m drawing out of the system using various appliances and that’s very.
