dapsyra:
On the surface, it appears as if the Canadian PV is outperforming the Flames PV. But this is not the case.

If you do a cost-benefit analysis of both arrays using the real cost per watt of energy produced, you will discover that the Flames panels are outperforming the Canadian panels.

A 300w Flames mono PV cost N45k while the Canadian equivalent cost N60k, that is, 33.3% more expensive

Now let us do some simple analysis using the instantaneous harvest data supplied (assuming the orientation and inclination are same).

3960w is canadian panels produced 2690w of instantaneous power ==> 67.93% efficiency

3000w of Flames panels produce 2005w of instantaneous power ==> 55.69% efficiency

So the Canadian panel is more efficient than the Flames panel by about 12.26% but it is also 33.3% more expensive.

To my discerning mind, the Flames PV outperforms the Canadian PV and it gives better value for money than the Canadian PV on this occasion


When it is considered that the initial prices paid for the panels were one-time capital costs, the 'Canadians' on account of better yields soon break even when compared to the Flames; then the Canadians soon overwhelm the Flames "indefinitely" w.r.t. yields it won't even be funny. wink

I am also sure the Canadian solar will also have better and linear degradation over time ( normally 80 % capacity retained over 25 years) compared to flame

I have personally installed BYD batteries, you can also get lithium ion phosphate battery cells from China, you will require an external BMS.

Thank you.

Well!. Different stake to different folks.

At least you listened to your customers, a sign that you
Have studied the market and intend to have a lasting impact.
Anyway that is what we want -"good quality products" and value for money
Particularly In RE/AE stuff.

I hope to patronize you soon!

My bros

Last year when I checked your harvest, I was amazed by the quantum
In MEGAWATTS you've generated. You have been a sort of
Motivation to us. Thus I say a big thank you and numerous big guns here
Most of whom have remained silent for months even though their previous
Insights have remained inestimable in giving hope to yearning & enthusiastic Nigerians in attaining freedom from discos through RE/AE.

But
Oga no be only you ooo, farming the sun has been good. I remembered i could not hold my joy the first day I crossed 1kw generation. Nowadays I farm 20.4kw from 4950w grade B panels giving me freedom from discos during the day. I know this is laughable to icons like NiyiOmoIyunade & co. At least you guys are wonderful.

Wishing us all more juice to our banks while farming the sun.

How do i know my charge controller is performing optimally?
I have 12 panels 300watt each, connected 3P4S .
Charge controller is 60A MPPT
3.5kva 4 batteries (200ah each)
But the thing is i hardly get into the absorption stage unless its aided by PHCN power which is not stable.
During peak period i register about 120v for the Panel PV array and a current of 8.5amps going to this battery for charging.
My question is if the current is adequate considering the fact that my CC is rated 60amps

I am not a guru but i think you should get more amps than 8.5 with that configuration. Perhaps this has to do with the kind of cables you used and distance between the panels and controller.

First off...i guess you meant 3s4p...the 3p4s u wrote above..will damage most charge controllers whose Voc is capped at 150v.
Do confirm that.
2ndly confirm the make and type of charge controller you have
3rdly..confirm cable size from panels to cc and cc to battery ....
4th..long shot maybe that your connection has disconnected on the panels..i would suggest boots on the ground...ie let a pro from the forum go and qaqc your setup
Re: Solar Energy, A Complement To FTA by earthrealm(m): 10:00am On Mar 13, 2019
Trying to salvage the situation while i save up for a new bank.
The bank circled in yellow is about 3 to 4months older than the bank circled in blue........2 sets of ha02 are conneceted to the bank.

I am considering shuffling the batts n placing batts of similar voltages together.its a 48v 5kva inverter setup .
With my plan batt 1 & 2 will join batt 5&6 to make up 1 string.while batt 3&4 will be married to bank 7&8...ie the purple lines in the picture

A copper bus bar &equal lengths of 25mm cable was introduced into the setup some time ago.so the strings should be at equilibruum
so @house critique my plan and advice me accordingly

you correct, its 3s4p, cable size 6mm
the charge controller is DEKA POWER, red in color

whats the distances in ft or meters
1. panel to CC
2. CC TO Battery

the deka , is an unfamiliar make, is it the same company as deka battery usa??

Good day dear friends,
Please I need your urgent help.
Months back posted an issue about my solar system and got solution here. Thanks.
Today having a similar challenge.
On my epever charge controller the panel is showing BUT there is no arrow sign to show that power is flowing from the panels to the battery.
Unlike before where the panels sign was not showing so now I don't know what the problem could be please. Please advice me
Batteries may be due for change since more than 2 years but want to be sure before changing.

I also need contacts of good technician around Mowe ogun state.
Thanks

There's something wrong with your installation
If u are getting 120v and 8.5amps from ur panels means that at least 2 strings of panels are not connected properly.

3 panels of 300w connected in series will give u about
120v and 8.5amps

3S4P panels should be giving u 120v (8.5x4)amps ië 120v 38amps.
Kindly note these are simplified calculations actual may vary.

My advise is to do a string by string test and u will definitely find out the faulty strings.

Secondly increase the size of Ur cable from Combiner box (Or solar panels) to Charge controller.

6mm2 (AWG 9) wire is grossly inadequate for 25m run.

Use the following link to calculate voltage drop

Thank you so much for taking time to explain this to me, I will act as stated.
my technicians is saying he wants to double the cable I.e use a 6mm for negative terminal and another 6mm for the positive terminal.
don't know if this would improve it.

i think you are a lil confused, the installer must have used 6mm for positive, then 6mm for negative
THE chart shows you need 16mm at 3% loss, i would advice you to split your panels into 2 sets of 6 panels each 3s2p, used a 10mm dual armoured cable to run each string, and used a combiner box or properly sized circuit breakers to marry/terminate both strings.
zeestone and kiekie have such cables in stock...

finally at this stage, it should be obvious to you that your installer doesnt have a clue of what he is doing, get an installer from this forum to go qaqc ur setup and modify it accordingly, zeestone /frankie/ niyi etc are ever ready

Jinko announced 450 Watt Panel !!

The Perc technology panels ( 300 watt to 350 Watt) will soon give way to NGT ( next generation technology )High capacity panels .

Even SunPower has launched a 415-watt panel and so has LG

remember the PMPO wars in the old stereo days between SONY/Aiwa/Philips /Technics

Any specialists in the house with prior experience on working high POWer DC applications

the initial 6mm cable is dual( both negative and positive in it).
so now he wanted to merger this dual cable together as 1 core for the positive and we buy another similar dual 6mm cable and us for the negative.
Re: Solar Energy, A Complement To FTA by efuro(m): 6:18pm On Mar 13, 2019
12 -300w pv is quite an investment, dont sweat too much. Just get a professional to handle your job if you're not a diy. certainly a lot of things are not right with your setup. Most Deka controllers I know are worthless pwm am surprised it has survived up till now. Pix of ur setup can get you more advise.
