Quote from: BriansBrain on 18.06.2023, 17:40 My Radio Brian's solar installation has begun.12 x 460W panels in place and wired up.Each weighs 25 kg and is 2.11m x 1.05m x 35mm deep.Each pair are wired in series providing +/- 90V @ 10A then all in parallel.Cable runs just need tidying up now You cannot view this attachment.

QuoteThe unit of power is the Watt (abbreviated W).In the case of solar irradiance, we usually measure the power per unit area,so irradiance is typically quoted as W/m², that is, Watts per square meter.
Quote from: BriansBrain on 23.09.2023, 14:53 Now I have three Pylontech 48V 3.5 kWh US3000C batteries ready for winter.+ The 1000W Elenos Transmitter is on the rack You cannot view this attachment.
Quote from: Dave on 23.09.2023, 15:41How long will the batteries run for BB?
Quote from: BriansBrain on 24.09.2023, 12:54Quote from: Dave on 23.09.2023, 15:41How long will the batteries run for BB?Obviously it depends on the load The three fully charged will give a usable 9360W of power.So that =18.72 hrs at a mains power load of 500W. -or-9.36 hrs at a mains power load of 1000W.etc.
Quote from: Dave on 24.09.2023, 14:11Is it just for Brain or is it for the home also? If it's just for Brain how long would he run for?

If it's just for Brain how long would he run for?Plus in the days when it's sunny and the batteries are fully chargedI connect the hot water boiler to have free electric from the panels.
Quote from: BriansBrain on 20.11.2023, 18:07 I've had to change the Solar Panel layout because of the shadow the water tower casts in the Winter.I hope the all day results will be as good as expected. You cannot view this attachment.You cannot view this attachment.You cannot view this attachment.
Quote from: Dave on 20.11.2023, 21:32I take it the sun comes up directly over the tower? Lucky you didn't permanently fix them to the roof.
