The principal components of a standalone PV system are as follows:
Standalone systems are used to charge banks of batteries during the day, for use at night.
Standalone systems are ideal for remote areas where grid electricity does not reach.
A charge controller protects the battery from overcharging.
A typical battery is composed of several individual cells each of cell voltage 2V.
The required number of batteries = rated energy of battery bank/rated energy of a single battery.
The major causes of ageing of batteries are sulphation, corrosion, and gassing.
A photovoltaic water pumping system supplies power through a DC-AC inverter to an electric motor coupled to a submersible pump.
