Renogy: Sizing Your Battery, Inverter, & Controller (5/6)

Renogy: Sizing Your Battery, Inverter, & Controller (5/6)

Hello! This video will help you size solar components for your off-grid system such as batteries, inverters and controllers. How to Calculate Amp-Hours for Battery Sizing: Amp-Hours = Watt-Hours/Volts Example: Sizing a Battery for a 65W TV that runs 10 hours a day (from video 3/6) Consumption: 650Wh/12V = 54.167Ah Ideal Battery Size (Double Consumption): 54.167Ah x 2 = 108.33Ah* *The battery you choose does not need to be this exact number, but should be within a 10-20% range. How to size your inverter: inverter size = total wattage needs Example: 800W (fridge) + 300W (fan) = 1100W Therefore you would need an inverter larger than 1000W for your system. *Please note that your inverter's voltage must match your battery bank's voltage.

Using Ohm's Law (and MPPT high volts) for optimal solar panel power/efficiency

Using Ohm's Law (and MPPT high volts) for optimal solar panel power/efficiency

© 2016 by Chris DIYer. All rights reserved. In this video, I show how I use Ohm's Law and online calculators to calculate wire cable loss. I run high solar panel voltages with my MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking vs Pulse Width Modulation or PWM) solar charge controllers (Midnite Solar Classics) to improve efficiency and minimize voltage drop through long PV feeder cable runs. Not all can run their systems this way (for example, using a PWM and a 12v battery bank). MPPT allows higher array volts without compromising current loss going down into a battery bank.

Review: MPPT-M20 Solar Charge Controller #1 - It's a Fake

Review: MPPT-M20 Solar Charge Controller #1 - It's a Fake

I was half expecting this controller to be real MPPT - or at least have an inductor and do a modest amount of DC/DC conversion. But no, it's an out-and-out fake, a fraud, a con, a rip-off. It looks like a PWM controller though, so it's worth checking how well it works.

The charge controller is one of the main components when you're setting and planning out your solar system. This piece takes the energy from the solar panels and... controls it.

If you have one 12volt deep cycle battery, then it's a 12v system. If you have two and you connect them like I did, in parallel, then its a 12volt system. If you have two connected in series its a 24 volt system. I recommend the parallel 12 volt system.
