Energy Basics – 1

First understand your Power Requirement

In case you want to calculate about your need for power backup. Although there are many solutions to this problem but the most common solution that most people apply across the globe; is to go for an Inverter-Battery system. Planning to purchase an inverter, the first question that comes to mind is “What size of inverter I need?” to get best value for money being invested and meeting home/office need.  How one knows

Hydro Power

Hydropower is a renewable, non-polluting and environment friendly source of energy. It is very simple, easy, super swift and  simple concepts. Moving water turns a turbine, the turbine spins a generator, and electricity is produced. It all begins with the energy in the moving water. The use of water falling through a height has been utilized as a source of energy since a long time. It is perhaps the oldest renewable energy technique known to the mankind for mechanical energy conversion as well as electricity generation.

Batteries

A battery, in concept, can be any device that stores energy for later use. In a stand-alone power system, the energy stored in batteries can be used when energy is needed. Battery does not generate electricity, its an electrical storage device for later use like we store data on our computer, laptop or smartphone devices for later use may this is bad example but water tank storing water for later use is better and best example to depict battery. For battery life expectancy there are so many variables, such as depth of

Charge Controllers

Charge ControllerCharge Controller as name suggest is meant for controlling the charging of battery or work as regulator to protect battery from overcharge and block a reverse current. If a non-self-regulating solar array is connected to lead acid batteries with no overcharge protection, the life of your batteries will be highly compromised. Simple controllers contain a transistor that shunt the PV charging circuit, terminating the charge at a pre-set high voltage and, once a pre-set reconnect is reached, opens the shunt, allowing charging to resume. In the solar sector for electricity generation, greater attention is

Inverters

Role of Inverter – The role of an inverter is to convert the direct current produced by the battery into alternating current required by all your house hold devices.  An inverter in a grid connected renewable energy system converts direct current (DC) electricity from solar panels or a wind turbine into alternating current (AC) mains power.

Efficiency – Inverters also have a range of efficiencies, with poor designs being no more than 50-60% efficient, while good designs can reach 85-95% efficiency.  Low efficiency means that a very large proportion of the battery’s energy is wasted by the inverter

Renewal Energy Solutions

Renewable energy can be deploy in off-grid systems, on-grid system or even hybrid of off-grid and on-grid. Usage of renewal energy for power generation through solar energy is growing steadily in both developed and developing countries, but there are only limited data available on their scope and extent. With declining costs and increasing performance for small hydro installations, solar photovoltaics (PV) and wind turbines, as well as declining costs and technological improvements in electricity storage and control systems, off-grid renewable energy systems could become an important growth market for the future deployment of renewables.

Renewal Energy : The Future

Renewable energy source available which is the most abundant, cleanest and it’s an excellent solar resource shining across the globe. Today’s technology allows us to capture this energy in several ways giving the public and commercial entities flexible ways to use both the heat and light of the sun. And don’t worry it will take 5 billion years for Sun to
