Solar Charge Controllers

Solar Charge Controller devices controls the energy coming from the solar panels. It adjusts the current and the voltage then sends it to the batteries in the system. Solar Charge controller devices prevents over charge and over discharge of the batteries, therefore, the controller protects the system. Each solar energy systems requires a charge control device. Charge control devices divided into two as PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) Charge Controllers and MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) Charge Controllers.

PWM Charge Controllers (Pulse Width Modulation)

PWM stands for Pulse Width Modulation.

PWM charge controller devices can be explained as an electrical switch between batteries. The switch can be quickly switch on and switch off, therefore a desired voltage can be obtained to charge the batteries. The charge current will be slowly decreased as the batteries charged.

MPPT Charge Controllers (Maximum Power Point Tracking)

MPPT stands for Maximum Power Point Tracking.
MPPT is a technique to observe and regulate the energy going from solar panels to the batteries. Solar panels show changeable outputs according to weather conditions. MPPT Charge Controller devices can match the solar panel voltage with battery voltage to maximize the charge efficiency. In these systems, the full power of solar panels can be used by balancing between voltage and current according to the P = V x A equation. For example, the amount of current drawn from the panels reduced to protect the voltage when the weather is cloudy. When the weather is sunny, it is allowed to draw more current.

Victron SmartSolar MPPT Charge Controllers

A solar charger gathers energy from your solar panels, and stores it in your batteries. Using the latest, fastest technology, SmartSolar maximises this energy-harvest, driving it intelligently to achieve full charge in the shortest possible time. SmartSolar maintains battery health, extending its life.
The SmartSolar charge controller will even recharge a severely depleted battery. It can operate with a battery voltage as low as 0 Volts, provided the cells are not permanently sulphated or otherwise damaged.
