Microtex solar battery have superior quality – for one reason! All components are manufactured in-house!
Right from the raw materials, we manufacture the complete battery & all its components. This guarantees that we control the quality & performance of our batteries rather than relying on outside vendors for the various battery components. Complete control of the quality of components ensures you get a solar battery made with consistency & the legendary reliability of Microtex products
The use of solar off-grid energy supply is becoming increasingly popular for domestic, industrial and municipal applications.
There are distinct advantages of lead-acid solar battery technology compared to lithium-ion battery & other electrochemical systems. Affordability, reliability, recyclability and safety are key issues in choosing the right battery for a particular application and lead-acid batteries will score highly in these categories.
Due to the variable nature of renewable energy sources, many of the installations include an energy storage system to enable supply for peak demands and when energy generation is limited.
There are alternative storage technologies but the method of calculating the size of the lead-acid battery required is common to all chemistries. To ensure a system that satisfies the usage requirements it is necessary to obtain a reasonably detailed picture of the loading and run time autonomy of the solar battery. Allowances must be made for the efficiency of the components in the system in converting energy from the input source to the demand on the solar battery. For this, the size of the individual load, the total load and the individual run times are crucial factors in calculating an accurate battery capacity for the system requirement.
Whether as the sole source of electricity or as a hybrid fuel supply, the characteristics of the equipment and the application need to be thoroughly understood to design and specify an effective and trouble-free installation. To provide electricity during the night, either all or in part, from a solar photovoltaic array requires solar battery for storage of electrical energy. A meticulous approach to calculating the autonomy load will also ensure that the solar battery selection will be accurate. A correct battery specification will ensure not only a satisfactory autonomy but also a long and cost-effective solar battery life.
When you do buy a battery whether a solar battery for a solar panel, an electric bike or a UPS and inverter battery backup system or a traction battery for forklifts don’t you wish you knew more about it? How do lead-acid batteries work? What are the differences between types and models, and how about the different chemistries? They can be expensive. In a commercial or domestic application what is the payback, what is the life and the cost of replacement of a lead acid battery? The size you need, the space available, the energy efficiency of lead acid battery and recharge time? And then, there is the hidden costs of safety, disposal and the carbon footprint.
The efficiency of the battery in Photovoltaic system
The basic principle of operation for a Solar Photovoltaic or renewable energy supply is that it has to convert power (watts) into a form which has a controlled voltage for either storage or direct use through an inverter or DC: DC converter where there is a constant voltage supply. Each operation from the power supply to the load will have an efficiency loss which must be considered when calculating the amount of energy available for the autonomous period. The total efficiency of the system depends upon the number of stages between the power supply, the load and the % efficiency at each stage.
