Photovoltaic Solar Install Mini-Training System
Miniature Solar Training Kit
The Photovoltaic Solar Install Mini-Training System provides a real hands-on installation experience. Students benefit from a thorough understanding of basic PV theory and the relationship between components of a stand-alone battery based system. Other benefits come from working on a type of solar system that's in common use today in many off-grid applications including remote lighting, electronic gate openers, irrigation system timers, uninterruptable power supplies and rural water pump power..
This 12 volt system incorporates the use of racking equipment such as unistrut rails and unirac clamps. Rails and modules are grounded as required by NEC code. Modules are 17 Voc and are paralleled inside a NEMA3 rated bell box. From there the THHN conductors are run in Liquid Tight Nonmetallic Conduit. The Power conditioning unit includes a properly sized charge controller to adjust the charge applied to the storage battery. This controller includes a Low Voltage Disconnect to protect battery from over discharge and thereby extending the life of the battery. The battery itself is a Sealed Lead Acid battery,12 amp hours AGM type.
The solar modules are UL listed and produce the needed voltage to power the included inverter/power conditioning system. All wire, conduit, connectors, fasteners and grounding components are included.
When placed in outdoor sunlight this system produces and stores electrical energy which can then be used day or night. Technical drawings are included.
