Off-grid PV systems are not connected to the electricity network and are not dependent on diesel generators. They produce energy by standing in the sun.
Off-Grid systems consist of 4 main components:
Photovoltaic modules: The photovoltaic modules convert sunlight into electric energy.
Battery Charge Controller: The battery charge controller controls the energy flow of the entire system. It makes sure that the solar module charges the battery quickly and effectively, but it also protects the battery against overcharging.
Battery: The electrical energy is stored in the battery and can be used when needed during the night.
Inverter: The inverter converts the battery’s DC voltage into AC voltage, which can be used by all electrical applications.
