A 600w solar panel system can meet the power consumption of the medium size houses. 600 V solar systems with 24 V can produce 25 amperes daily and 125 to 200 amperes in an hour. This energy is more than enough for a medium-sized house. If there are five peak hours of sun in a day and the solar panel works with 21% efficiency, then it will generate 3000 W of energy. This energy can learn all the LED lights, water heater energy sufficient for fridge toaster microwave, 3000 W inverter to run an AC and several mobile devices. All the appliances that use energy less than 3000 watts can run under this solar panel. It should also be taken into consideration that many machines need power to start but as they start running, needs less energy. For example, a fridge requires 2000 W to create, but as it runs smoothly, it only requires 200 W of power. All these details are applicable only if there are at least five sun hours. If the sun's hours increase to 8 hours, the energy can reach up to 4800 W.
How many batteries are required for a 600 W Solar System?
Batteries are needed for the storage of energy. As the sun never shines 24 hours a day. The sunlight is available only for 5 to 6 hours. So, batteries can store the power, and it is consumed in the dark hours. The number of batteries required for any solar system can be calculated easily. If the watts are divided by volts, then the amperes are obtained. The number of batteries can be installed to store the obtained amperes. As a 600 W solar system provides 3000 W of energy daily. Suppose 2000 W is consumed, and the rest is wanted to be stored in the battery. So;
3000 W/12V = 83amps (12 V batter is to be installed)
So, in this case, just one battery of 100ah is a perfect choice. This method allows the number of batteries with their own choice of volts to be installed. Usually, one battery of 12 V is more than enough in a 600 W solar system.
Requirement of charge controllers and investors:
A 30-ampere controller and 3000-watt inverter are required for a 600-W solar panel. It should be taken into consideration that these are the minimum requirements. The value of the amperes of the controller and watts of the inverter also increases if power consumption increases. As the inverter takes power from the battery, not from the solar panel, a prominent investor should be brought if the energy saving is up to 4000 watts.
If two arrays of 300 watts solar systems are installed, it would be more beneficial. It will occupy less space and will produce a total of 600 watts. If the proper wiring and connections are not installed with the solar panel installation, this will result in power losses. For this purpose, short and thick wires and installing solar panels with battery, inverter and a controller are necessary.
