This is a very large system that was designed for a longstanding Solarkobo client who first reached out to us via our email. The system was designed to provide uninterrupted power supply for a wide range of home appliances. At a peak production of 3kVA from the panels and 1.8kVA from the battery bank, the system can power at least one air conditioner or one side-by-side refrigerator, a pressing iron, an electric cooker for a few hours--alongside a few basic home appliances, multiple laptops and a countless number of phone chargers and energy saver bulbs.
It featured the following:
1. Twelve (12) roof-mounted traditional monocrystalline panels installed in four strings of three panels each.
2. A 5kVA Kevin inverter.
3. Eight (8) rack-mounted 200Ah Ritar AGM batteries.
4. A 60A Fangspun MPPT charge controller to regulate charging from the panels.
5. Extra protection features including AC and DC circuit breakers and surge adapters. In addition to the protection features provided by the inverter against reverse current, overload and overcharge, these features offer another layer of protection to the client's investment. They also make it easy and safe to disconnect the system from the panels in the case of emergencies like lightning that could damage the inverter or solar panel fires.
