Mobile Solar Generator
Mobile Solar Generator will supply 4000 WATTS ( 33 AMPS)
of continuous 110VAC power, until the batteries are discharged. If
the amount of power going into the batteries, from the SOLAR PANELS
is equal to the amount of power going out, the batteries WILL NOT be
discharged. The key to a SOLAR ELECTRIC SYSTEM is to match the power
going in with the power going out to the loads. Because the sun is
not always constant, it is advisable to have a large enough battery
bank so that you have RESERVE CAPACITY during periods when there is
less or no solar energy available.
Xantrex Trace SW4048 inverter will produce sine wave
power that is capable of melding with utility power to help reduce
the load (and power bill) to WAPA. The solar array and the inverter
can be programmed so that the batteries are charged by the solar and
any excess power is used to help run the loads. The inverter is also
capable of charging the battery. When the outside AC fails, the
INVERTER automatically transfers back to INVERTER mode, drawing
power from the batteries and inverting it to AC to power the loads.
The BATTERY BANK consists of 4,
12VDC 90 Amp/Hr Rolls 27- HT-90 batteries that are connected in
series to create 1, 48VDC 90 Amp/Hr BATTERY. The total capacity is
4.32 Kwh of which 80% is useable.
The nameplate rating the 8 BP MSX120 panels is 960 watts. On our
average sunny day they should produce over 4 Kwh of energy.
SOLAR ELECTRIC SYSTEMS are ideal
for homes that do not have a utility source available. The money
spent to run power poles and lines would be better spent on your own
power system. Residences that are on the Grid already may benefit
from 2 to 8 panel EMERGENCY POWER SYSTEMS that will automatically
turn on when WAPA fails and provide quiet, low maintenance power to
your home, as well as reducing your consumption a little bit, while
WAPA is on.
