50Wp MPPT charge controller – Ideal for Solar Street Lights
The SCC-1B50-M charge controller is used to charge a battery from a Solar PV power source.
The Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) algorithm is used in advanced solar charge controllers to track the peak power delivered by a solar panel and maximize the energy harvested by the panels.
MPPT varies the electrical operating point of the modules and enables them to deliver maximum available power. The voltage at which PV module can produce maximum power is called ‘maximum power point’ (or peak power voltage)
The Smart MPPT Algorithm tracks the peak power point of a solar panel, irrespective of operating conditions. This ensures power gain as compared to conventional PWM based charge controllers and thus raises the bar for high performance solar controllers. MPPT charge controllers offer a potential increase in charging efficiency up to approximately 30 %.
The advanced charging technique using 16 bit microcontrollers charges lead acid batteryusing an optimized charging sequence that assures full charge and improves battery life.
Equalize Charging is a controlled overcharge performed on lead acid batteries periodically. This reverses the buildup of negative chemical effects like stratification. Equalizing also helps to remove sulfate crystals that might have built up on the plates. If left unchecked, this condition, called sulfation, will reduce the overall capacity and life of the battery.
Conventional PWM street light chargers do not offer the above features hence need period maintenance by external source charging.
SCC-1B50-M Charger implements low battery disconnect feature prevents the battery from deep discharge in case of long shelf life or with poor solar in monsoon seasons. The battery remains disconnected and stops further discharge.
