How Solar Power Generation works : Basics

There are three basic components on Solar Power generation.

➢  Solar Panels

➢  Solar UPS

➢  Batteries

Solar Cells are sandwiched in toughened glass and put in frame for the convenience for transportation, installation & maintenance. It generates electricity when exposed to sunlight.

The production completely depends on availability of sun light and is typically supposed to generate full power for 300 days a year. In case of cloudy atmosphere, the production will drop according to the atmosphere.

This is DC current and is fed to UPS to convert it to standard power required power say 230 V AC. Excess energy is stored in batteries for use in night hours. Batteries provide DC current to UPS after the solar power drops and power supply continues. Hybrid UPS intellectually controls the logic & gives optimum solar power in combination of batteries & Mains Supply.
  • It is advisable to put all the loads which consume constant current form 10 AM to 4 PM on solar generator to make the best use of the plant.
  • Lower the night loads, less would be battery requirement.
  • It is always advisable to resize the loads & reduce the wasteful power consumption.
