FAQ

1.What is the difference between PV module, PV panel and PV array?

  • PV module or solar module is a smallest complete environmentally protected assembly of interconnected solar cells.
  • PV panel is a group of modules fastened together, pre-assembled and wired, designed to serve as an installable unit in an array.
  • PV array is a mechanically integrated assembly of modules or panels and its support structure. An array does not include its foundation, tracking apparatus, thermal control, and other such components.

2. What is Industrial Power Pack?

  • It Combination of Module, Inverter, Charge Controller and Batteries.
  • The centralized Power generated is supplied to the connected loads.
  • The centralized batteries and Inverters locations give convenient maintenance and security facility.

3.Solar Lighting Solutions

  • It Combination of Module, Inverter, Charge Controller and Batteries.
  • The centralized Power generated is supplied to the connected loads.
  • The centralized batteries and Inverters locations give convenient maintenance and security facility.

4.Solar Water Pumping and lighting System

  • It Combination of Module, Charge Controller and Switch Over.
  • It can be used by grid also, as it works in DC and AC Power as well.

5.What is Solar Power Back up System?

  • It Combination of Module, Charge Controller and Switch Over.
  • It can be used by grid also, as it works in DC and AC Power as well.
It s combination of SPV Module, PCU (Power Conditioning Unit), Battery, Logical Circit etc..

The Power can be used in day time and also night time
 

The Components of the System are:


SPV Modules:
Solar modules are either Crystalline or Thin films. It generates electricity from solar radiation. The generated electrical energy, DC, can be directly used for DC appliances or AC appliances through Inverters. The power generated at real time only.

Battery Bank:
The battery bank stores the energy generated from Solar Module. It supplies the Power to the load when Sun is not available or the power generated from Solar Module is not enough.

Power Conditioning Unit (PCU):
The battery bank stores the energy generated from Solar Module. It supplies the Power to the load when Sun is not available or the power generated from Solar Module is not enough. When the batteries are charge to preset level, the PCU Grid/DG Power needs to be cut off manually/Auto from the system and load should be continue run from the Inverter. Solar Power must be preferred and use Grid/DG Power only when the Solar Power/Battery Charge is insufficient to meet the load requirement.

DP Box & Power Meter:
Distribution Point is the centralised point where the power gets distributed from. Power Meter is used to measure the power generated from Solar Module and system as a whole.

Others:
There are MCBs for the protection of the components of the system. There is auto/Manual Switch Over to make the system functioning as per requirement.
 

1. Maintenance of the System

  Solar Modules
  • Solar Modules are completely static component and it has no moving parts, they are virtually maintenance free.It just needs to be kept clean only. Most of the time, rain cleans them off. Still it’s advisable to clean it once in a month Wash them in the morning or evening. For PV maintenance, that's it.
  Batteries
  • It depends on the type of the batteries used in the system.If the battery is water based then the water needs to be replaced regularly. Otherwise it needs simply cleaning on regular basis.
  Inverter
  • Practically very negligible maintenance like cleaning.
  Charge Controller
  • Practically very negligible maintenance like cleaning
2. Warranty and Life
