I’m going to talk about how to truly properly size your solar system how much power batteries can really store and the way of solar system really works because it’s pretty amazing how many people that have solar systems don’t truly understand how much power they have and it’s important to know because if you end up with a situation where your modules break your solar panels aren’t functioning.
For a period of time or you have a series of cloudy days it’s good to understand exactly how many kilowatt hours you can actually pull out your battery safely so how many days and how you can ration your power and also that really helps you sighs your system properly without with what appliances you’re using so I’m.
Going to start by explaining how the batteries are set up that first one to say the caps are off the batteries right now because I’m equalizing explain that in another tutorial but hydrogen gas is escaping right now and you don’t want these caps on while that’s happening so right here I have eight Deka LT16 batteries now these are 350 amp hours batteries.
I’m going to explain as part of what i can explain today what that means but before I do that these are set up in two strings parallel together so we have four batteries a group of four batteries that are in series which means that they’re wired from the positive to the negative positive to the negative positive to the negative and then positive to the positive and negative to the negative.
Over to the next string when you wire for batteries in series every time you do that the amperage stays the same but the volts double so each of these batteries is 6 volts so when I put 4 in series i end up with essentially one bigger 24 volt battery the amps are still the same though so what i have here are two 24 volt batteries and then they’re parallel together negative 2 negative and positive to positive and when you parallel.
Two batteries together you double the amprage so i have sized my battery system to make this 24 volts with double the amperage of a single battery so each of these batteries is 350 amp hours ok so first i want to clarify that when your solar panels on the roof the electricity that they generate you’re not using that electricity directly.
You’re never using that electricity directly any time you pull power from solar system you’re always pulling from the batteries the solar panels send electricity to the charge controller and the charge controller reads what the voltage of the battery system is and maybe even a couple other metrics and it determines how it should charge these batteries so if you’re using power during the day the pleading power from these batteries when.
The sun’s out that electricity from the panels is actually directed into the batteries to charge them but it’s not actually but the the power that you’re using your pulling power from the batteries and the solar modules through the charge controller are charging the batteries back up that’s the best way to look at this so that being said you only have as much power to use as what’s stored in the batteries.
CDR King 500 watt power inverter
This is a 500 watt power inverter from cking it converts 12 volts up to household 220 volts and this is inside, it comes with these clips to go on your battery and then on the other side, you have a universal power socket, so you can put in a two pin, three prong or similar, and a switch on and off. Now you might be wondering why I have it taken apart, well the reason is.
When i went like this, it was making a rattling noise so i had to find out what it what, and what I found out is that inside you’ve got these which you can see there and then a screw goes into it from the outside. Now, I only literally just bought this about 30 minutes ago when like that means fracturing my found out his.
Wannabes was just moving around inside bickers someone remove two screws here ice is no screw you when I bought it was having realized to go home and when they remove the screw this in for 10% off on the inside because it’s not tax to anything and it was resting around you can imagine what would happen if this was to.
Touch between certain points increase user can a.m. somewhere else found the sale of the screws beam ground down some trying to remove them season the room sigh screwdriver no issue warm into town so it’s quite annoying I don’t know if this is being returned Sony’s new anyway why do so screwed us all back together.
A.m. and in a connected to the factory in chengdu in action ok and that’s connected to the fact recount and one thing you wanna make sure its weekly chiles make sure they’re going that way you don’t want them blocking this fire we stop by Craig ok I’ve got so much the 100 our como tu ly Thomas charge from my friends here.
See see them anyway 7 a.m. will connect the positive just a temporary for now nothing fancy and then it’s probably get spoke spoke make this one Baker it’s not invest 15 bus which enhances.
Process which yes for me you so let’s connect 0 want me to and see how many a how clean the votes is coming out Sarah and skinny second.
Right reflecting now but see to spring out and moment 238 0 face pretty steady a I’ll just come grab the laptop charger with a pain to see how that goes ok have come back with charger plugged in and see how many boxes using pass sorry what someone’s.
