Solar charge controller is charge controller that is used in the solar application and also called solar battery charger. Its function is to regulate the voltage and current from the solar arrays to the battery in order to prevent overcharging and also over discharging. There are many technologies have been included into the design of solar charge controller. For example, MPPT charge controller included maximum power point tracking algorithm to optimize the production of PV cell or module.
light system is system that uses PV module to convert
sunlight into DC electricity. The system consumes only
DC electricity and incorporates solar charge controller
to store DC in the battery bank to supply during sunlight
is not visible or nighttime.
Solar home system
is system that takes energy generated from PV module to
supply for home appliances or other household applications.
The system incorporates solar charge controller to store
DC in the battery bank and suits for using in any areas
where utility grid is not available.
is system that consists of multiple energy sources to
provide full time, backup power or other purposes. It
usually combines solar array with other forms of generation
such as diesel generator and renewable energy forms (wind
turbine generator and hydro generator, etc.) and incorporates
solar charge controller to store DC in the battery bank.
