In the previous article, How to size the panels of your solar power system?, we learned the sizing of the solar array. Now, what should be the size of the wires that will connect the all components (solar panels, charge controller, battery and the load) of the solar power system?
The size of the wire is very important, while an undervalued wire may result in excessive heating and ultimately it will burn out on the other side a overvalued wire may cost your more.
The solar panels are the most important component of any solar power system. The proper sizing as per your load can solve your energy needs. The following points need to be considered before sizing the panels for your solar power system.
If you are going for off- grid solar power system then there should be a back up support to provide electricity during night or when sun light is less. Here comes the role of the battery, an ideal sizing of the battery as per your needs can solve your problem.
Till now, we have learnt the basics of the solar electricity, here in this post we will learn to design the solar system by ourselves.
As you know that the basic components of the system are:
