Things To Know About Outback Solar Charge Controller Most professionals working in clean energy must know about solar charge controller. However the solar charge controllers we see in you need to be markedly diferent from their predecessors. Any system with energy storage needs a way to control the fow of energy into the batteries. Outback Charge Controller has taken on several new features in the market lately such as improved capacity as they reach greater working currents to accommodate larger systems. The better fexibility with more controllers using improved weather-resistant styles that operate under greater environmental extreme conditions with less maintenance. Newer designs with excellent thermal management will enable designers to bring solar to more demanding areas which need electricity such as research stations distant telecoms sites and exploration as well as functions. The opportunity for improvement was based in the frst solar energy charge controllers. When this technology frst appeared during the beginning 1980s solar charge converters came in one- or two-stage designs. They weren’t particularly efcient or complex but these beginning controllers were more or less reliable. The problem was in how they afected battery health. Theyre on/of charging style rapidly damaged the batteries from either excessive heat or undercharging. Since the backup batteries are one of the most costly parts of the energy system this was a serious matter. Maximum power point tracking MPPT controllers extract more energy from PV arrays. The latest progress of charge controllers develops on previously advances to locate the highest reason for working efciency in a PV array and then convert that ability to improved current at the lower battery volts. The result is the release of the most energy possible from the array leading to smaller less costly arrays with excellent efciency when compared to earlier generations. MPPT technology resolves the problems of earlier controllers while cutting expenses. Solving the disadvantages of early generation controllers is an essential beneft of today’s MPPT technology but the price benefts involved are also compelling. Previous Outback Charge Controller were limited to PV voltages that matched battery bank. For instance a 12-volt battery bank would require of 36-cell “12-

volt nominal” PV module and a 48-volt battery would need an array with 144 cells in series. Sixty cell modules are now an industry norm as component manufacturers have retooled their lines to improve mobile utilization for improved manufacturing efciency and reduced expenses. 36 and 72-cell modules are increasingly rare and command a more costly per watts. The installation software also saves money on greater volts and less similar relationships also allow the installation software to save on cabling and other balance-of-system component expenses since the volts of Solar Power Kit is greater and there are fewer parallel connections. Modern charge controllers of Solar Power Kit can also evaluate system efciency and ofer integrated communications capabilities for distant problem fxing. These are three key elements to understand about today’s solar energy charge controllers but we can simplify the main takeaway even further: The modern controller catches highest possible solar energy for applications of every size.
