Solar Power Working principle

ON-GRID SYSTEM WORKING PRINCIPLE

  • Step-1: The solar panels convert sunlight into electric energy, which is Direct Current (DC). This current is then sent to an inverter.

  • Step-2: The inverter converts this DC to Alternating Current (AC) since households are only equipped to use AC. The grid tied inverter additionally regulates the amount and voltage of electricity fed to the household since all the power generated is mostly much more than a home needs or can handle.

  • Step-3: This ‘converted’ power supply is then used by homes through the main electricity distribution panel. Your home now has access to clean and green electricity, which makes you a contributor towards a cleaner and more sustainable environment.

  • There could be worries about how the home will receive power when the sun is not shining – that is the benefit from having the system ‘tied’ to the grid – your home receives non-stop power irrespective of the weather.

OFF-GRID SYSTEM WORKING PRINCIPLE

  • Step-1: The power hub is where the solar rays are converted to electricity for use or as stored electricity in the batteries. This hub therefore manages the flow of electricity.

  • Step-2: The batteries are an essential component of this system as they store any excess electricity that is then used when the solar panels are not generating electricity for any reason

  • Step-3: You could also opt for the backup generator that will provide the power to recharge the batteries in the event that bad weather or peak demand continues for a while.

  • Step-4: No changes are required to the present wiring or other appliances in your home as it is possible for this system to combine with the existing system. All your home appliances will operate with the electricity generated.

  • We at Start Solar provide the best solar power systems that are supported by excellence in customer service and in-depth knowledge of our experts. They will provide the appropriate advice depending on your home electricity needs.

HYBRID SYSTEM WORKING PRINCIPLE

  • Step-1: It works as both the off-grid and on-grid systems – during the day when the sun is shining brightly, the panels convert the rays to electricity and any excess will be stored in the batteries, much like the off-grid systems. However, if even after storing in batteries and using electricity in your home, there is still excess power, the system then sends this excess back to the grid according to the rate of the chosen feed in tariff, similar to the on-grid system.

  • Step-2: Since the batteries are continually charged during the day, they are able to store enough energy. During times of outages and little or no sunshine, the home can draw its power from these batteries. If however, these adverse situations last for too long, the batteries can be recharged from the grid and your home will only use as much power from the grid as is required to recharge the batteries.
    Step-3: Till the batteries are recharged or the grid begins to function as usual, your home will still have an uninterrupted power supply since it will draw power from the grid. This keeps the cost of power down.
