It can, simply​ add another panel..

I mean you should buy another 150AH battery if your panel charges it effectively..

I get your point now, can't buy an extra panel at the moment. Thanks once again.

From experience panel array only produce 3 to 4 times it's capacity..

So your 250W will provide about 800Wh.. thats about 60AH of charge.. if you upgrade by 50AH how do you charge it?

If your 150AH is serving well with the panel.. then stick with it.. since 30A PWM cannot accept a perfect additional​ panel..

The 150 AH battery is virtually dead, i have to change it. So the 30 amps controller can't charge a 200 AH battery? Thanks for the input.

you didn't state your load...

concerning battery brand, you can go for Ritar/sukam/safepower

Thanks. Load is about 120 W max, most times it's just about 80 W.

Hello everyone, i need some quick advice here please.

I have a 800 VA sukam inverter, a 250 W panel, and a 30 amps PWM controller. My current 150 AH battery is long due for replacement, so i am thinking of replacing it with a new 200 AH. My concern is that the panel may take too long to charge the battery full, even though i don't intend to discharge it to more than 50%. Am i just better off with a smaller battery, say a 150 AH or 100 AH?

I also need recommendations on reliable battery brands to buy (preferably from experience), i kinda believe the so called 'telecom' batteries are solid, even if they are more expensive.

Assuming they buy dressed weight at 800 as u said and u have 2.5kg on a 52days old bird that is 2.5*800=2000

Are u telling me that is a loss at 52days let's be practical this is a good deal multiple by quantity except we don't want to be real with our doc cost and feeding

Where did i mention profitability or otherwise? I doubt you even understand my post.

Live weight =2.5kg (for example)

Dressed weight = 2kg

Price per kilo of dressed bird = 800

Selling price of 2kg dressed bird is 2kg (800) = 1600

Pray tell, what is the cost of raising a broiler to 2.5kg live weight? What duration? 52 days is just 7.5 weeks approximately.

Please enlighten me.

So u see
If the bird weighs 2.5kg multiple by 1400 am glad u confirmed this price so anyone interested in making it big Pls go out and do ur marketing in broiler their is always market

This analysis isn't completely true.

The cold room will by @ a much lesser price, say 800-900 depending on a lot of factors (i do not know the current selling price @ the moment). The cold room buys per kilo in dressed weight, and not live weight as you assumed in the estimate above.

After dressing, a 2.5 kg bird will weigh around 2kg give or take. Thus the selling price will be the price/kg multiplied by the dressed weight. Of course extra cash can be made selling the gizzard, legs, and the head. Also the cost of dressing should also be taken into consideration, especially when a large number of birds are involved.

Hello Everyone. I have a locally fabricated layers' battery cage for sale. The capacity is 120 birds (two tiers). The cages were used for just two cycles and are in a very good condition. The set up is automatic as i will be selling with nipples and pipes. Location is Ilorin. Please quote if you are interested.

Brother
Based on your comment. Here is what I think.
Your battery seems to have reached . EOL ( end of life).
It would be hard to say for sure because you supplied very little details on the type of battery it is. (Networking battery is not a type of battery) might want to supply he picture of the batt to help house Jedi Masters. Can it be revived. Maybe but don't put your hopes on it.
How long have u been using he batteries? How would you describe your regular usage patterns.. like how many hours does it run and how much load do u put on it during the run time.
My preliminary guess is that the batteries died due to being under charged and over discharged. I use the sukam falcon plus. And as much as I love that inverter. I have noticed that it is often times unable to fully charge a battery. In my case.. my charge controller continues to charge my battery even when my inverter has stopped charging. The reason for this is probably because the charging algorithms on the sukam is set on a very conservative side to prevent over charging.
Secondly you probably use this batteries till the inverter start singing low voltage. Nothing kills a deep cycle battery faster. They aren't meant to be 100% discharged. It shorting their life faster than ebola in a human body.
What can be done. Get a new battery but before u do. Have a hand on your consumption pattern. A well designed consumption pattern should be built around using 50% of your battery capacity and ensuring it is replaced fully before you use them again.. which leads us to power generarion.
Bros. That 50w panel is no where near what you need to charge your batteries. You would need at least 300w panels and preferably an mppt charge controller rated at 20ahs
Let's do some maths. So u have 300w panels.. let us take out the usual 77% loses to heat and charge controller efficiencies. 300*0.77 = 231.
So your 300w panel should give u around 230w daily divide that by your battery voltage 230 ÷ 12 =19.2
That's the average you would get from the panels with an mppt controller.
5 hours of sun is more than enough to charge your batteries to full from a 50% depth of discharge. You might want to get a 200ah battery in future. Luminous agm are some of the best in the market.
There hope that answers some questions. There are still so many things you need know. You might want to Google more and read back at the older discussions. Lots of value tressures back there.
My self too am a learner so you can always Google to see if what I say makes sense.

Thanks for the comprehensive response bro, you have been very helpful. I believe i may have inadvertently killed my battery as you suggested. I confirmed that the battery is indeed dead by trying to charge it with a generator this morning; it didn't charge for more than 30 seconds before the inverter indicated that the battery was full.

I am aware of the implication of over discharging the battery, so i was always wary of discharging the battery 100% except in a few unavoidable situations. I have used the battery for close to 3 years, and even though it gradually depreciated with time, i still got a minimum of 4 hours run time from it on a 60W load (tv and decoder). The inverter isn't connected to the whole house, i basically just plug an extension box to it and use it to power my led tv, decoder, and phone.

Thanks for the response once again. I have learnt a lot from this thread since i started reading from the first page, albeit the hard way. It is a pity my first experience with solar has been a disaster.

Oh, and my battery is a 150Ah Fiamm deep cycle battery. Is there any possibility of reviving it?

There are many factors that can affect this setup.
1. A 50w panel can produce 4A when its at its peak power. 4A will take 150/4 =25hrs to fully charge. Now consider you have about 7 hrs of sunlight and due to the variable angle of sunlight you get maximum of 60% averagely from the panel which is 2.4A. With this fact, it will take about 2.4Ax7hrs/day x 9days =150AH of steady sunlight charging for d battery to full.
2. It also depends on how you position the panel to get max sunlight.
3. You need a charge controller to regulate the charging and also give you visibility of what's going on,
In summary, you need to change your battery and get about 200w*2 solar panel and an mppt charge controller to effectively charge ur battery as even a new battery degrades within a short time if consistently undercharge. Since where you stay now has poor mains supply, u need effective solar charging.....cutting corners will be a waste of money.

Thanks for the response bro. I think i may have inadvertently destroyed my battery. It's a pity i have to learn the hard way.

@BasedOnB abeg stop flooding the thread with yr issue, u need to get a better wattage solar panel.... 50watt sp is just peanut for inverter setup... Maybe you should try and start reading the thread from page one......a 50watt sp won't be 100% efficient self... U need to upgrade.

Flooding the thread? I quoted the two monikers because i recognised them from other solar threads and i thought they could help with the needed clarification(s).

You are niether the op nor the moderator, so what exactly is your 'issue'? I wouldn't have bothered responding, but i find the tone of your response a little condescending.

You didn't really say anything meaningful in my opinion. Upgrade to what exactly? 5,000W panel? Saying a 50W panel is 'peanut' isn't enough, some real, practical advice would have gone a long way in making sure i do not 'flood the thread' again.

Oh and i know solar panels are not 100% efficient as there are bound to be losses. It isn't just because the panel is rated 50W.

Hard to get OEM charge profile for this battery all my searches resulted to null. Down side of buying little known (on a global scale ) product. Anyways I did get some information of off sukam tubular battery via their technical support in India ( told them I use their tubular batter... I lied)

Anyway my charging profile - based on what I gathered from other Indian made tubular battery like Sukam, luminous and exide - are as follows

Boost 14.4v to 14.6v. Tubular batteries according to most docs I read are said to be fully charged at 14.4v but the fact that some charge controllers are unable to accurately sense battery voltage .. Might be safer to set your controller to 14.6v for boost.

Float is 13.5v

Equalization is 15.5v

Hope this was of help

Please help with this.

I have a basic inverter set up which i've been using for a
couple of years without hassles. My inverter is a falcon
series 800va 12v sukam inverter, and my current battery is
a 150 Ah 12v monilite ('Networking') battery. The battery
doesn't last for long anymore but i still get 3-4 hrs on the
average from it with my led tv/decoder combo after a full
charge (PHCN).

I recently moved to an area with non-existent PHCN supply,
and so i decided to incorporate a solar panel into the set up
to charge the battery. I got a 50W 12V panel and connected
it to the battery. The problem is the battery doesn't last long
@ all. I didn't use the battery for about 5 days in the hope of
getting a full charge. After 5 days, the battery didn't last for
2 hrs after loading my led tv (45W).

Right now, it doesn't even last long enough for me to charge my phone. It is that bad. Please what could be wrong?

The guy that sold the panel to me said i need to get a solar
charge controller to charge the battery, but i seriously doubt if it will have any effect whatsoever. I feel the battery isn't just getting enough energy from the 50W solar panel.
Is the solar panel too small for the battery? The inverter isn't a solar inverter, but i've been using it since 2012 without issues.

I would appreciate your response please.

If you choose to monitor it urself and have d time fine...but if left unmonitored and there power supply for a long time the battery can swell due to overcharging and the risk of explosion for sealed batteries is there.

There are so many variables. So lets eliminate them and then we can get to your problem.
1. How many amp hours are your batteries?
2. What is the size of the controller connected to your 200 watt panels?
200/12 =16 amps. It has to be at least that size. If you have a 100 amp hour battery it will take 6.25 hours of direct sunshine to charge them at the full 200 watts. You know that will never happen because we average less that 4.5 hours a day at this time of the year. And after losses you will never see 200 watts.
3. What is the load total for all the devices you connect to your batteries?
Look at your batteries and there are two numbers that represent you bulk and float voltage (cycle and standby use). 13.1 during the charge cycle is below that number. Your batteries need to see 14.4+ V daily during the charge cycle. Some need to see close to 15V. Read what it says on the side of the battery. You don't get to those numbers your batteries are not fully charged and would eventually fail because of sulfation.
There is nothing wrong when the battery drops from 13.1 to 12.5 when you take the generator or charge source off.
Learn about your batteries and you will get results.
Good luck.

Home Win to Nil YES implies that the home side will win the match without conceding a goal (the home side wont score @ all). If the tip is Home Win to Nil NO, then you are saying the away team will score even if they lose the game, or they may not even lose the game @ all (they may win or draw).

For example Arsenal (Home) vs Chelsea (Away), Tip is Home Win to Nil NO.
Scoreline is 1-0, bet is lost.
Scoreline is 1-1, bet is won.
Scoreline is 1-2, bet is won.
Scoreline is 0-0, bet is won.

In summary, anything other than an outright win by the home team, the bet is won. The same thing applies for the Away team Win to Nil NO market. Hope it helps.
