1 kVA Solar hybrid power plant

Yield expectation  

In a sunny day, this solar power plant can supply around 3.24 kWh in eastern Africa per day. Enough to cover the energy consumption of many households.

An example calculation of energy consumption for 1 kVA solar power plant is show in the table below: The operation time of the appliance could be for example from 6 PM to midnight for all of the devices expect the fridge. The fridge can run during the whole day to keep the food cool.

All household appliances, which are available in the market (like refrigerator, lightning, fan, TV, PC and more), can be operated with this solar hybrid PV power design

Design of the PV power plant

This solar power system is designed for independent power supply and hybrid application. It can be operate as a stand-alone power supply system. As required, it is possible to connect a generator for hybrid application.

If the power supply from the photovoltaic (PV) panels is insufficient, the PV system automatically supplements the missing power from the battery storage. At night or at complete breakdown of the PV panels and empty battery storage, the PV system automatically switches off to protect the lifetime of the battery storage. The system switches automatically to PV supply as soon as the sunrise
