MyGen Utility Interactive Systems
INCREASE THE VALUE OF YOUR HOME
Your MyGen Residential System will provide value to your
home by quietly and reliably producing electricity every day of
its long life. Beyond simply avoiding purchase of commodity
power from the utility, the system adds financial value to your
home. A PV system is a capital improvement to the building
and will increase its resale value as it will continue to produce
electricity for the new owners. Your house will be more
valuable with a PV Solar System on it, and because the added
value of your home is tax-exempt, you'll have all the resale
value without an increased tax burden.
DO YOUR PART TO HELP THE ENVIRONMENT
By avoiding the use of electricity created from fossil or nuclear
fuels, you'll contribute to the health of the planet. Utilizing
solar energy allows you to keep harmful by-products out of
our air and water. When you install a MyGen Residential System
on your home, you'll be supporting cleaner energy, and you'll
play a major role in preserving precious natural resources. A
years use of the MyGen-20 in Arizona will prevent 5,109 lbs of
carbon dioxide from being released into the air - the
equivalent of that produced by burning 250 gallons of
gasoline!

FREQUENTLY
ASKED
QUESTIONS
Renewable Energy (RE) may seem puzzling to some
people that are not familiar with it. To help those of you
that are being exposed to solar power for the first time,
we have compiled and answered a dozen of the most
frequently asked questions that we commonly hear at
Kyocera Solar. We hope this FAQ file is helpful to you.
Q1...
How do solar cells
generate electricity?
A1...
Q2...
Will solar
work in my
location?
A2...
Solar is universal and will
work virtually anywhere,
however some locations
are better than others.
Irradiance is a measure of
the sun’s power available
at the surface of the earth
and it peaks at about 1000
watts per square meter.
With typical crystalline solar cell efficiencies around 14-16%,
that means we can expect to generate about 140-160W per
square meter of solar cells placed in full sun. Insolation is a
measure of the available energy from the sun and is expressed
in terms of "full sun hours" (i.e. 4 full sun hours = 4 hours of
sunlight at an irradiance level of 1000 watts per square meter).
Obviously different parts of the world receive more sunlight
than others, so they will have more “full sun hours”per day.The
solar insolation zone map will give you a general idea of the
full sun hours per day during the summer for your location.

Photovoltaics or PV for short can be thought of as a direct
current (DC) generator powered by the sun. When light
photons of sufficient energy strike a solar cell, they knock
electrons free in the silicon crystal structure forcing them
through an external circuit (battery, inverter or direct DC
load), and then returning them to the other side of the
solar cell to start the process all over again. The voltage
output from a single crystalline solar cell is about 0.5V with
an amperage output that is directly proportional to the
cell’s surface area (approximately 7A for a 6 inch square
multi-crystalline solar cell). Typically 30-36 cells are wired in
series (+ to -) in each solar module. This produces a solar
module with a 12V nominal output (~17V at peak power)
that can then be wired in series and/or parallel with other
solar modules to form a complete solar array.

Q3...
How much will solar cost for
a 2000 square foot home?
A3...
Unfortunately there is no per square foot “average” since
the cost of a system actually depends on your daily energy
usage and how many full sun hours you receive per day;
and if you have other sources of electricity. To accurately
size a system to meet your needs, you need to know how
much energy you use per day. If your home is connected to
the utility grid, simply look at your monthly electric bill. If
not, you can fill out the “load evaluation form” on page 12.
Using this information, your authorized Kyocera Solar
Dealer can design a system to meet your needs.

What components do I need
for an off-grid system?
Solar Irradiance
Module
Charge
Controller
Inverter
Battery
There are many components that make up a complete solar
system, but the 4 main items on a stand-alone system are: solar
modules, charge controller(s), battery(s) and inverter(s).The
solar modules are physically mounted on a mount structure
(see question 7) and the DC power they produce is wired
through a charge controller before it goes on to the battery
bank where it is stored. For more detailed information on solar
modules, turn to page 17.The two main functions of a charge
controller are to prevent the battery from being overcharged
and eliminate any reverse current flow from the batteries back
to the solar modules at night.Turn to page 36 for more
detailed information on charge controller functions and
features.The battery bank stores the energy produced by the
solar array during the day for use at anytime of the day or
night. Batteries come in many sizes and grades, which you can
see starting on page 43.The inverter takes the DC energy
stored in the battery bank and inverts it to 120 or 240 VAC to
run your AC appliances. For more detailed information on
different inverter models and features, turn to page 56.
Q5...

What components do I
need for a grid-tie system?
A5...
Q6...
Can I use all of my normal
120/240 VAC appliances?
A6...
Grid-tie systems are inherently simpler than either grid-tie with
battery back-up or stand-alone solar systems. In fact, other than
safety disconnects, mounting structure and wiring, a grid-tie
system is just solar modules and a grid-tie inverter! Today’s
sophisticated grid-tie inverters incorporate most of the
components needed to convert the direct current from the
modules to alternating current, track the maximum power
point of the modules to operate the system at peak efficiencies
and terminate the grid connection if grid power is interrupted
from the utility.
Maybe. Many older homes were not designed or built with energy efficiency in mind.When you purchase and install a renewable energy system for your home, you become your own power company, so every kWh of energy you use means more
equipment (and hence more money) is required to meet your energy needs. Any appliance that operates at 240 VAC (such as
electric water heaters, cookstoves, furnaces and air conditioners) are expensive loads to run on solar.You should consider using
alternatives such as LP or natural gas for water/space heating or cooking, evaporative cooling instead of compressor based AC
units and passive solar design in your new home construction if possible. Refrigeration and lighting are typically the largest 120
VAC energy consumers in a home (after electric heating loads) and these two areas should be looked at very carefully in terms
of getting the most energy efficient units available. Great strides have been made in the past 5 years towards improving the
efficiency of electric refrigerators/freezers. Compact fluorescent lights use a quarter to a third of the power of an incandescent
light for the same lumen output and they last ten times longer.These fluorescent lights are now readily available at your local
hardware or discount store.The rule of thumb in the renewable energy industry is that for every dollar you spend replacing
your inefficient appliances, you will save three dollars in the cost of a renewable energy system to run them. So you can see that
energy conservation is crucial and can really pay off when considering a renewable energy system.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q7...
What type of solar module mounting structure should I use?
A7...
There are four basic types of mount structures: roof/ground,
top-of-pole, side-of-pole and tracking mounts, each having
their own pros and cons. For example roof mount structures
typically keep the wire run distances between the solar array
and battery bank or grid-tie inverter to a minimum, which is
good. But they may also require roof penetrations in multiple
locations, and they require an expensive ground fault
Top of Pole Mount
Roof/Ground Mount
protection device to satisfy article 690-5 of the National
Electrical Code-NEC. On the other hand, ground mounted
solar arrays require fairly precise foundation setup, are more
susceptible to theft/vandalism and excessive snow
accumulation at the bottom of the array. Next are top-of-pole
mounts which are relatively easy to install (you sink a 2-6 inch
diameter SCH40 steel pole up to 4-6 feet in the ground with
concrete). Make sure that the pole is plumb and mount the
solar modules and rack on top of the pole.Top-of-pole
Side of Pole Mount
Trackers
mounts reduce the risk of theft/vandalism (as compared to a
ground mount).They are also a better choice for cold climates
because snow slides off easily. Side of pole mounts are easy to install, but are typically used for small numbers of solar modules (14) for remote lighting systems where there already is an existing pole to attach them to. Last but not least are the trackers, which
increase the daily number of full sun hours and are usually used for solar water pumping applications.Trackers are extremely
effective in the summer time when water is needed the most. In the northern U.S., typical home energy usage peaks in the winter
when a tracker mount makes very little difference as compared to any type of fixed mount (roof, ground or top-of-pole). In this
situation, having more modules on a less expensive fixed mount will serve you better in the winter than fewer modules on a
tracker. However, if you are in the southern U.S. and your energy usage peaks in the summer, then a tracker may be beneficial to
match the time of your highest energy consumption with a tracking solar array’s maximum energy output.
Q8...
Should I wire my home
for AC or DC loads?
Q9...
A8...
A9...
It depends on the size of the system and what type of loads
you want to run. DC appliances are usually more efficient than
AC since you don’t have to worry about the loss through the
inverter, but DC loads are typically more expensive and harder
to find than their AC counterparts. Small cabin and RV systems
are typically wired DC while most home systems are wired
exclusively for AC loads.With improvements in inverter
efficiency and reliability in the last 5 years, AC is the way to go
for a home system. Another advantage AC has over DC is that
the voltage drop for a 120VAC circuit is much less than a
12VDC circuit carrying the same power, which allows you to
use smaller gauge wire.
No. Photovoltaics converts the sun’s energy into DC
electricity at a relatively low efficiency level (14-16%), so
trying to operate a high power electric heating element
from PV would be very inefficient and expensive. Solar
thermal (or passive solar) is the direct heating of air or
water from the heat of the sun and is much more efficient
for heating applications than photovoltaics.

- latitude plus 15° in the winter
Most mount structures are available with a seasonal
adjustment of the tilt angle from horizontal to 65°. To
determine if your proposed array site will be shaded at any

Q11...
Should I set my system’s
battery bank up at 12, 24,
or 48 VDC?
A11...
The PV industry really began with the 12V radio communications market. These systems were typically small (1-2 solar
modules) and had all 12 VDC loads. As the solar industry matured and entered the home market, systems became much
larger (16+ solar modules) and no longer used DC loads exclusively. Most home systems today are 24 or 48 VDC since the
higher system voltage gives you a lot more flexibility as to how far away you can place your solar modules from the
battery bank as compared to a 12V system. For a given power output, a higher system voltage reduces your amperage
flow (but not your power) which allows you to use a smaller and less expensive gauge wire for your solar to battery and
battery to inverter wire runs. Of course, if you already have a lot of 12VDC loads, that may be your deciding factor as to
what voltage you set your system up at. Most grid-tie systems operate at 48 volts or higher.

The Basics of Electricity
THE
BASICS OF
ELECTRICITY
Before purchasing a photovoltaic system, it is a good idea
to have a basic understanding of electricity. Simple
familiarity with basic electrical terms and concepts will
enable you to better understand your renewable energy
system and use it with confidence.
The building blocks of an electrical vocabulary are voltage,
amperage, resistance, watts and watt-hours. Electricity can
simply be thought of as the flow of electrons (amperage)
through a copper wire under electrical pressure (voltage)
and is analogous to the flow of water through a pipe. If we
think of copper wire in an electrical circuit as the pipe, then
voltage is equivalent to pressure (psi) and amperage is
equivalent to flow rate (gpm).
To continue with our electricity to water analogy, a battery
stores energy much as a water tower stores water. Since a
column of water 2.31 feet tall produces 1 psi at the base,
the taller the water tower the higher the pressure you get
at the base. As you can see from the picture to the right, the
mushroom shape design of a water tower allows it to
provide a large volume of water to end users at between
40-60 psi. Once drained below 40 psi which occurs near the
neck of the tower, continued water usage will rapidly
deplete the water supply at an ever decreasing pressure.
Although a 12 volt battery is not physically shaped like a
water tower, it has most of its stored electricity available
between 12 volts to 12.7 volts. When drained below 12
volts, little amperage remains and the battery voltage will
decrease rapidly.
In a simple system, a power source like a solar module
provides the voltage which pushes the amperage through
a conductor (wire) and on through a load that offers
resistance to the current flow which in turn consumes
power (watts). Power is measured in watts and is the
product of voltage multiplied by amperage. Energy is
power (watts) used over a given time frame (hours) and is
measured in watt-hours or kilowatt-hours (1 kilowatt-hour
equals 1000 watt-hours). For example, a 100 watt light left
on for 10 hours each night will consume 1000 watt-hours
or 1 kilowatt-hour of energy. A kilowatt-hour is the unit of
energy measurement that the utility company bills you for
each month. Electrical appliances are rated in terms of how
many watts (or amps) they draw when turned on. To
determine how much energy a particular appliance uses
each day, you need to multiply the wattage by the number
Solar Electric Products Catalog • May 2006
of hours used each day. See the load evaluation sheet on
page 12 for more information on electrical load
calculations.
When wiring solar modules or batteries together in an
renewable energy system, remember that connecting two
of them in series (+ to -) doubles their voltage output, but
keeps their amperage (or amp-hour capacity) the same.
Connecting two of them in parallel (+ to +, - to -) doubles
their amperage output (or amp-hour capacity), but keeps
their voltage output the same. For example, most solar
modules have a 12V nominal output so you would need to
wire four of them in series (+ to -) to charge a 48V battery
bank. The amperage output from these four solar modules
in series is the same as that of a single solar module.
Similarly, you would need to wire four 6V 350 amp-hour
(AH) L-16 size batteries in series (+ to -) to configure them
for 24V operation and then connect two strings of four
batteries in parallel (+ to +, - to -) to obtain a 700 amp-hour
capacity battery. See Appendix F for more information on
battery wiring.
The discussion above of voltage and amperage leads to the
subject of wire size. The amount of current that you can
send through any electrical circuit depends on three things;
the size or gauge (AWG) of the wire being used, the voltage
of the system and the one way wire run distance. All wire
(Cu and Al) has a listed resistance per 1000 feet with a
larger gauge wire having a lower resistance value than a
smaller one. The longer the distance and lower the voltage,
the larger gauge wire you will need to use to minimize the
voltage drop.
As a "rule of thumb", if your solar array consists of 4 or
more, 60 watt or larger solar modules and is 50 feet or more
away from the battery bank you should consider setting
your system up at 24 or 48V instead of 12V. See the voltage
drop tables in Appendix B at the back of the catalog for
more information on wire sizing for 12, 24 or 48 VDC.
Many water towers are physically shaped like a mushroom.
Electrically speaking, batteries are mushroom shaped as well.
A tower designed to produce 50 p.s.i. for household pressure
might be built like this.

Where a range of numbers are given, the lower figure often
denotes a technologically newer and more efficient model.
The letters “NA” denote appliances which would normally
be powered by non-electric sources in a PV powered
home.
We strongly suggest that you invest in a true RMS digital
multimeter if you are considering making your own power.
Also helpful are clamp-on type ammeters. It actually makes
sense to know where your power is being used, even if you
are not producing it, and if you are, these meters are
essential diagnostic tools.

The Basics of Electricity
If your home is connected to the utility grid, your energy
usage has already been calculated for you in kilowatt-hours
per month on your electric bill. If you are building a new
home and would like to size a renewable energy system to
power it, fill out the following form as completely as you
can. Just break down your electrical appliances by room
(kitchen, living room, bathroom, etc.), check if they are AC
or DC, list how many you have, their wattage and then
estimate how many hours per day and days per week you
use each particular appliance. If you can do that for each
and every electrical appliance in your home, then your
Kyocera Dealer can calculate your daily corrected watthours and design your system.

WORKSHEET
Use the worksheet on the right to determine your solar
requirements. We have included an example column and a
column for your system.
1. Locate your site on the average yearly insolation map on
page 6 and list the nearest figures.
2. Take the daily corrected total loads in watt hours from
your load evaluation sheet.
3. Divide line 2 by line 1. This is the number of watts we
need to generate per hour of full sun.
5. Divide line 3 by line 4. The result is the number of
modules required for your system. When rounding this
number, remember that sets of 2 modules are needed for a
24 volt system, sets of 4 for 48, etc.

batteries required.
1. Determine total watt-hours per day required from your
load calculation.
8. Round number of batteries to fit system voltage.
Example; A 24 volt system requires sets of 2 when using
12 volt batteries; sets of 4 when using 6 volt batteries
and sets of 12 when using 2 volt cells.
2. Determine days of storage required.This approximates
the greatest number of cloudy days in a row expected (3
to 7 is common for residences, 7 to 14 for remote
communications and monitoring sites).
Rule of thumb:We recommend that your battery bank’s watthour capacity (at the 20 hr rate) be at least 10 times more than
your daily corrected watt-hour figure from the load evaluation
form on page 12.

SOLAR ELECTRIC MODULES
The balance of this catalog lists and describes all of the equipment that you might need for a renewable energy system. We start
with solar modules since they are your power producers and we progress through your system concluding with the loads your
system will operate.
Solar Module Power
Characteristics
intensity. Increases in cell temperature increase current
slightly, but drastically decrease voltage.
Maximum power is derived at the knee of the curve. Check
the amperage generated by the solar array at your battery’s
present operating voltage to better calculate the actual
power developed at your voltages and temperatures.
The current and power output of photovoltaic modules are
approximately proportional to sunlight intensity. At a given
intensity, a module’s output current and operating voltage
are determined by the characteristics of the load. If that
load is a battery, the battery’s internal resistance will dictate
the module’s operating voltage.
IRRADIANCE: AM1.5, 1kW / m2
CELL TEMPERATURE 25 C
8
1000W / m2
A module which is rated at 17 volts will put out less than its
rated power when used in a battery system. This is because
the working voltage will be between 12 and 15 volts. As
wattage (power) is the product of volts times amps, the
module output will be reduced. For example: a 50 watt
module working at 13.0 volts will produce 39.0 watts (13.0
volts x 3.0 amps = 39.0 watts). This is important to
remember when sizing a PV system.
An I-V curve as illustrated to the right is simply all of a
module’s possible operating points, (voltage/current
combinations) at a given cell temperature and light

Voltage (V)
PV modules are very
sensitive to shading.
Unlike a solar thermal
panel which can tolerate
some shading, many
brands of PV modules
cannot even be shaded
by the branch of a leafless tree.
Shading obstructions can be defined as soft or hard
sources. If a tree branch, roof vent, chimney or other item is
shading from a distance, the shadow is diffuse or dispersed.
These soft sources significantly reduce the amount of light
reaching the cell(s) of a module. Hard sources are defined
as those that stop light from reaching the cell(s), such as a
blanket, tree branch, bird dropping, or the like, sitting
directly on top of the glass. If even one full cell is hard shaded the voltage of that module will drop to half of its
unshaded value in order to protect itself. If enough cells are
hard shaded, the module will not convert any energy and
will, in fact, become a tiny drain of energy on the entire
system.
Examples of partial-cell shading that
reduce PV module power by ½
Partial-shading even one cell of a 36-cell module, such as
the KC130TM, will reduce its power output. Because all cells
are connected in a series string, the weakest cell will bring
the others down to its reduced power level. Therefore,
whether ½ of one cell is shaded, or ½ a row of cells is
shaded as shown above, the power decrease will be the
same and proportional to the percentage of area shaded, in
this case 50%.
Solar Electric Products Catalog • May 2006
18
Solar Electric Modules
When a full cell is shaded, it can act as a consumer of
energy produced by the remainder of the cells, and trigger
the module to protect itself. The module will route the
power around that series string. If even one full cell in a
series string is shaded, as seen on the right, it will likely
cause the module to reduce its power level to ½ of its full
available value. If a row of cells at the bottom of a module
is fully shaded, as seen in Figure 7, the power output may
drop to zero. The best way to avoid a drop in output power
is to avoid shading whenever possible.
Example of full-cell shading
that can reduce PV module
power to zero
Tilt Angle
Example of full-cell
shading that can reduce
PV module power by ½
To capture the maximum amount of solar radiation over a year, the solar array should be
tilted at an angle approximately equal to a site's latitude, and facing within 15º of due
south. To optimize winter performance, the solar array can be tilted 15º more than the
latitude angle, and to optimize summer performance, 15º less than the latitude angle. At
any given instant, the array will output maximum available power when pointed directly
at the sun.
To compare the energy output of your array to the optimum value, you will need to know the site's latitude, and the actual
tilt angle of your array-which may be the slope of your roof if your array is flush-mounted. If your solar array tilt is within
15º of the latitude angle, you can expect a reduction of 5% or less in your system's annual energy production. If your solar
array tilt is greater than 15º off the latitude angle, the reduction in your system's annual energy production may fall by as
much as 15% from its peak available value. During winter months at higher latitudes, the reduction will be greater.
Azimuth Angle and
Magnetic Declination
If a south-facing roof is unavailable, or the total solar array
is larger than the area of a south-facing roof section, an east
or west-facing surface is the next best option. Be aware that
solar power output decreases proportionally with a
horizontal angle, or "azimuth," greater than 15º from due
south. The decrease in annual power output from a
latitude-tilted east or west-facing array may be as much as
15% or more in the lower latitudes or as much as 25% or
more in the higher latitudes of the United States. Avoid
directing your tilted solar panels northwest, north or
northeast, as you'll get little power output.
Magnetic declination, the angle difference between
magnetic south and true solar south, must also be taken
into account when determining proper solar array
orientation. If a magnetic compass alone is used to
determine where to point the array, you may not capture
the maximum amount of solar radiation. For a general view
of the magnetic declination field lines in North America, see
the map on the right.

declination, visit the following website:

Kyocera Solar Modules (KC)
Kyocera's advanced cell processing technology and automated
production facilities have produced a multi-crystal solar cell
with an efficiency of over 15%. All modules are constructed
using a tempered glass front, EVA pottant and a PVF backing to
provide maximum protection from the most severe
environmental conditions.The
entire laminate is framed in a
heavy duty anodized
aluminum frame to provide
structural strength and ease of
installation. Because Kyocera
modules are so efficient less
space is required than other

Module Interconnects and Panel Output Cables
MODULE INTERCONNECTS
Proper connection of your solar modules to each other and to other components is crucial to the overall performance of your photovoltaic
system. Without proper wiring, power from your solar array may be lost right at the source before it ever gets to your battery bank or inverter.
The module interconnects and panel output cables listed below make it very easy to make clean, code-compliant, water-tight connections.
Cable Assemblies
All of these interconnects are pre-assembled, featuring tin-plated copper fork
terminals crimped and soldered to #10 AWG stranded copper wire with adhesive “melt
wall” shrink tubing heat sealed over the crimp connection. All cables are UL type TC,
600V, 90°C with black PVC sunlight resistant jacket and include corrosion resistant,
non-metallic, liquid-tight cable strain relief connectors for half inch knockouts.

Tilt Leg Kits
Tilt Leg Kits (optional) can be used to set the array to a more optimum angle in order to enhance overall system
performance. SolarMount kits feature a quick locking adjustment that makes even seasonal adjustments fast and easy.
There are two tilt up modes, 1) high profile, and 2) low profile, as illustrated in the adjacent drawings.
Use this chart to select the Low Profile Tilt Leg Kits required for your
modules. For instance, if you selected KC175GT modules, and you
wish to tilt them at 35 degrees, you will require 310122 tilt leg kits
(20-50 degrees). Total tilt legs must equal half the total number of
SolarMount L-feet in your installation (see SolarMount Price List for
number of feet per SolarMount).
Each low profile tilt leg kit contains (1) one square tube and one strut
insert, (2) two L-feet and (3) stainless steel hardware for use with
SolarMount rail kits. If ordering kits for use with SolarMount rail kits no
other items are required. If ordering for use with Pro-Pak rails, then
L-feet must also be ordered.
Quantity of tilt legs required
The number of tilt legs required in a low profile array
depends on the length of the mounting rails.

Solar Module Mounting Structures
Add aesthetics to the benefits of PV power.With your array in full view,the
sunshine rule applies:it has to look good.SunFrame delivers the visual
appeal you and your neighbors expect.To be sure,the mounting system
provides structural integrity for your array.Properly installed,SunFrame
complies with the Uniform and California Building Codes.It also meets
UniRac’s own high standard of installation friendliness,both initially and
whenever modules need replacement.
But it is aesthetics that truly sets SunFrame apart.It’s the only PV module
mounting system designed from the outset to enhance the appearance of
the home.A completed installation blends handsomely into the roof,
becoming as much as part of the house as a skylight.
SunFrame is designed to comply with the Uniform Building Code,1997,
Chapter 16,and the California building Code,2001,when installed
according to the SunFrame installation manual.
The SunFrame is designed to fit KC 130GT, 130TM,175GT and 200GT.No sizing is necessary.

Standoffs
Standoffs are used for flashed, roof-mounted installations. Part numbers 310017-31024 have vertical flanges with mounting
holes for direct connection to the SolarMount rail and are used to substitute for standard L-feet on tile or shake roofs. See the
SolarMount Price List (page 23) for quantity of L-feet packed with each SolarMount. Part numbers 310009-310016 have a flat
top with a 3/8" threaded insert nut, bolt and flat washer.They are used to support strut to which L-feet and/or tilt legs are
attached. Part numbrs 310027-310038 are flat top aluminum 2-piece units that are especially convenient when installing over a
tile roof because flashing can be precisely fitted over secured base prior to installtion of shaft.Two 3 1/2" x 5/16" stainless steel
lag bolts included with all standoffs. Marine-grade zinc-plated welded steel construction.

Charger Controller / Regulators
CHARGE CONTROLLERS /
REGULATORS
The main function
of a controller or
regulator is to fully
charge a battery
without permitting
overcharge while
preventing reverse
current flow at night. If a non-self-regulating solar array is
connected to lead acid batteries with no overcharge
protection, battery life will be compromised. Simple
controllers contain a transistor that shunts the PV charging
circuit, terminating the charge at a pre-set high voltage
and, once a pre-set reconnect is reached, opens the shunt,
allowing charging to resume. More sophisticated
controllers utilize pulse width modulation (PWM) or
maximum power point tracking (MPPT) to assure the
battery is being fully charged. The first 70% to 80% of
battery capacity is easily replaced, but the last 20% to 30%
requires more attention and therefore more complexity.
Why you need
a Controller
How controllers work
and available options
The circuitry in a controller reads the voltage of the
batteries to determine the state of charge. Designs and
circuits vary, but most controllers read voltage to control
the amount of current flowing into the battery as the
battery nears full charge. Features of a controller to
consider include:
• Reverse current leakage protection – by disconnecting
the array or using a blocking diode to prevent current
loss into the solar modules at night.
• Low-voltage load disconnect (LVD) – to reduce damage
to batteries by avoiding deep discharge.
• System monitoring - analog or digital meters, indicator
lights and/or warning alarms.
• Overcurrent protection – with fuses and/or circuit
breakers
• Mounting options – flush mounting, wall mounting,
indoor or outdoor enclosures.
• System control – control of other components in the
system; standby generator or auxiliary charging
system, diverting array power once batteries are
charged, transfer to secondary batteries.
• Load control – automatic control of secondary loads, or
control of lights, water pumps or other loads with
timers or switches
Solar Electric Products Catalog • May 2006
• Temperature compensation – utilized whenever
batteries are placed in a non-climate controlled space.
The charging voltage is adjusted to the temperature.
• Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) – an efficient charging
method that maintains a battery at its maximum
state of charge and minimizes sulfation build-up by
pulsing the battery voltage at a high frequency.
• Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) – a new
charging method designed to extract the most power
possible out of a solar module by altering its operating
voltage to maximize the power output.
Sizing a
Controller
Some systems require most
of these functions, others
require only one or a certain
combination. Your KSI dealer
can help you select a unit to
meet your specific needs.
Charge controllers are rated and sized by the array current
and system voltage. Most common are 12, 24, and 48-volt
controllers. Amperage ratings run from 1 amp to 60 amps,
voltages from 6-60 volts.
For example, if one module in your 12-volt system produces
7.45 amps and two modules are utilized, your system will
produce 14.9 amps of current at 12 volts. Because of light
reflection and the edge of cloud effect, sporadically
increased current levels are not uncommon. For this reason
we increase the controller amperage by a minimum of 25%
bringing our minimum controller amperage to 18.6.
Looking through the products we find a 20-amp controller,
as close a match as possible. There is no problem going
with a 30-amp or larger controller, other than the additional
cost. If you think the system may increase in size, additional
amperage capacity at this time should be considered.

Morningstar Controllers
ProStar Charge Controllers
Morningstar has upgraded their very popular ProStar line of pulse width modulated (PWM) charge
controllers to include several new features.The new design is still dual voltage at 12 or 24 volts with an
optional LCD display,but it is now available only in 15 or 30 amp capacities.Morningstar has added a 15
amp 48 volt model to the ProStar lineup that comes standard with the LCD display.A 15A/48V positive
ground model (PN 34939) is available.The ProStar’s LCD display still shows battery voltage,array
amperage and load amperage (if applicable),but now it also shows system information when a self
diagnostics test is performed as well as error codes to let you know what is going on if it detects a fault.
Internal temperature compensation is still standard.These additional features make the new ProStar
controllers one of the most advanced on the market.Five year warranty.

BATTERIES
Batteries are a key component in a grid-tie with back-up or a stand-alone renewable energy system that all of the other
components rely on for operation. Without proper maintenance, batteries can fail prematurely and shut the whole system down.
However, toiling over your battery bank with a voltmeter, hydrometer and a gallon of distilled water every day is not necessary.
With simple monthly and quarterly maintenance procedures, your batteries should last for a long time. On the other hand,
neglecting your batteries can drastically shorten their life span. The following statement sums it up best, "few batteries die a
natural death, most are murdered". The following information is designed to tell you how to get the longest life and best
performance possible from your battery bank. Most of this information is for flooded cell lead-acid batteries; alkaline (Ni-FE & NiCad) and sealed gel-cell battery charging characteristics are completely different.
Battery Types Used in
Solar Systems
There are three types of batteries that are most popularly
used in solar electric systems. Each type has its pluses and
minuses, so we will also include the systems the individual
types are best suited for.
Flooded Lead Acid
Flooded lead acid batteries have the longest track record in
solar electric use and are still used in the majority of standalone solar systems. They have the longest life and the least
cost per amp-hour of any of the choices. However the other
side of the coin is, in order to enjoy these advantages, they
require regular maintenance in the form of watering,
equalizing charges and keeping the top and terminals
clean. Some examples of flooded lead-acid batteries used
in solar electric systems are 6 volt golf-cart batteries, 6 volt
L-16's and 2 volt industrial cells for large systems.
Absorbed Glass Mat Sealed Lead Acid (AGM)
AGM batteries are seeing more and more use in solar electric
systems as their price comes down and as more systems are
getting installed that need to be maintenance free.This
makes them ideally suited for use in grid-tied solar systems
with battery back-up. Because they are completely sealed
they can't be spilled, do not need periodic watering, and emit
no corrosive fumes, the electrolyte will not stratify and no
equalization charging is required. AGM's are also well suited
to systems that get infrequent use as they typically have less
than a 2% self discharge rate during transport and storage.
They can also be transported easily and safely by air. Last, but
not least, they can be mounted on their side or end and are
extremely vibration resistant. AGM's come in most popular
battery sizes and are even available in large 2 volt cells for
the ultimate in low maintenance large system storage.
When first introduced, because of their high cost, AGM's were
mostly used in commercial installations where maintenance
was impossible or more expensive than the price of the
batteries. Now that the cost is coming down they are seeing
use in all types of solar systems as some of today's owners
think the advantages outweigh the price difference and
maintenance requirements of flooded lead acid batteries.

Gelled Electrolyte Sealed Lead Acid
Gelled lead acid batteries actually predated the AGM type
but are losing market share to the AGM's. They have many
of the same advantages over flooded lead acid batteries
including ease of transportation, as the AGM type, except
the gelled electrolyte in these batteries is highly viscous
and recombination of the gases generated while charging,
occurs at a much slower rate. This means that they typically
have to be charged slower than either flooded lead acid or
AGM batteries. In a solar electric system you have a fixed
amount of sun hours every day and need to store every
solar watt you can before the sun goes down. If charged at
too high a rate, gas pockets form on the plates and force
the gelled electrolyte away from the plates, decreasing the
capacity until the gas finds its way to the top of the battery
and is recombined with the electrolyte. For use in a grid-tie
with back up system or any system where discharge rates
are less than severe, gel batteries could be a good choice.
Think of your batteries
like a bucket of energy...
Batteries are simply a storage vessel for the direct current
(DC) power produced from your charging sources (solar
modules, wind generator, micro-hydro or generator/battery
charger). If you aren’t familiar with the water to electricity
analogy, please read the Basics of Electricity section on
page 10. If you don’t have time to read that whole section,
then just remember that pressure = voltage and flow rate =
amperage. The size of the bucket determines how much
water it will hold which is analogous to the amp-hour
storage capacity of a battery (bigger, heavier batteries hold
more energy like a larger bucket holds more water). If you
connected a pressure gauge to the bottom of a bucket and
started filling it with water you would see the pressure
increase until the water reaches the top. The same holds
true for a battery as you put amperage or current into it,
the voltage level rises.
In battery lingo, a
cycle on your battery
bank occurs when
you discharge your
battery and then
charge it back up to
the same level. A lead
acid battery is designed to absorb and give up electricity
by a reversible electrochemical reaction.
Deep Cycle vs.
Shallow Cycle
Solar Electric Products Catalog • May 2006
How deep a battery is discharged is termed depth of
discharge (DOD) while the state of charge (SOC) is 100%
minus the DOD. This means that a 25% DOD equals a 75%
SOC. A shallow cycle occurs when the top 20% or less of the
battery’s energy is discharged and then recharged.
Automotive starting, lighting and ignition batteries (SLI) are
of the shallow cycle type and are not recommended for
use in a photovoltaic system. The lead plates inside an SLI
battery are thin with a large overall surface area. This design
can produce a high amount of current in a very short time
(which is ideal for starting engines), but cannot be
discharged very deeply without damaging them and/or
shortening their life span considerably.
Deep cycle batteries on the other hand can be repeatedly
discharged to 80% DOD and recharged without damaging
them (although repeated deep cycling will shorten the
battery’s life as compared to the same number of shallow
cycles). Deep cycle batteries have thicker lead plates which
have less overall surface area as compared to an SLI battery.
Because of the lessened availability of surface area for
chemical reaction, deep cycle batteries produce less current
than a shallow cycle battery but can produce that amount
of current for a much longer period of time.
The depth of cycling has a good deal to do with
determining a battery’s useful life. Even batteries designed
for deep cycling are "used up" faster as the depth of
discharge is increased. It is common practice for a system to
be designed with deep cycle batteries even though the
daily or average discharging amounts to a relatively shallow
depth of discharge. To get the longest life out of your
battery bank, purchase deep cycle batteries and shallow
cycle them.

Determining battery
state of charge
The speed of the charging and discharging chemical
reactions occurring inside a lead-acid battery is governed
by temperature and charge/discharge current. The colder
the temperature the slower the reactions and conversely
the warmer the temperature the faster the reactions. Hence
a cold battery will deliver less amperage in any given time
frame as compared to a warm battery. Most of us have
experienced this effect when trying to start our cars on a
cold morning; the engine just doesn’t turn over as quickly if
at all. Warm that same battery up and you will see a major
improvement. (See the bar graph of temperature effects
below). The optimum temperature for a lead-acid battery is
around 77°F, but 60-80°F is acceptable. For this reason we
like to see batteries placed indoors or in a heated and
ventilated space to maintain them between 60° to 80°F. If
you do install them in an unheated space, battery capacity
must be increased to compensate for this derating. On the
other extreme,

Battery state of charge is determined by reading the static
(i.e. not charging or discharging) battery voltage or the
specific gravity of the electrolyte. The density or specific
gravity of the sulfuric acid (H2SO4) electrolyte of a leadacid battery varies with the state of charge and
temperature. The density is lower when the battery is
discharged and higher as the cells are charged, (see the
table below). This is because the electrolyte is part of the
chemical reaction, it changes as the chemical reaction takes
place. Specific gravity is read with a hydrometer which will
tell the exact state of charge. A hydrometer cannot be used
with sealed or gel-cell batteries.
Batteries aren’t 100%
efficient
Energy is never consumed or produced,it merely changes form.The
efficiency of conversion is never 100% and in the case of new
batteries averages around 90%.This means that if you want to
discharge 100 watt-hours of energy from a battery you must
charge it with approximately 110 watt-hours of energy.
Due to impurities in the chemicals used for battery construction,
batteries will lose power to local action,an
internal reaction which occurs whether you are using the battery or
not.This slow discharging is termed self-discharge and it’s rates vary
greatly among battery types and increases along with temperature.
The rate also increases with the age of a battery,so much so that an
old battery may require significant amount of charging just to stay
even.Even new batteries may lose 1 to 2% of charge per day.Lead
calcium grid batteries have the lowest self-discharge rates,but are
not designed for deep cycling applications.
Voltage meters are used to approximate battery state of
charge. They are relatively inexpensive and easy to use. The
main problem with relying on voltage reading alone is the
high degree of battery voltage variation through the
working day. Battery voltage reacts highly to charging and
discharging. In a PV system we are usually charging or
discharging and many times are doing both at the same
time. As a battery is charged the indicated voltage increases
and as discharging occurs, the indicated voltage decreases.
These variations may seem hard to track, but in reality they
are not. A good accurate digital meter with a tenth of a volt
accuracy can be used with success. The pushing and pulling
of voltage, once accounted for by experience, can also help
indicate the amount of charging or discharging that is
taking place.
By comparing
voltage readings to
hydrometer
readings, shutting
off various charging
sources or loads
and watching the
resulting voltage
changes, the
system owner can
learn to use
indicated voltage
readings with good
results.

Monitoring battery
state of charge is the
single largest
responsibility of the
system owner. The
battery voltage should
be kept at or above a
50% state of charge at all times for maximum battery life
(see the battery voltage table). Be sure to keep the battery’s
electrolyte level at the marked full level and never let the
plates become exposed to the air. When refilling the
batteries, use only distilled water - not tap water. Water is
the only element used by your battery, you should never
have to add additional acid to your battery. Do not over-fill
the batteries or fill when the batteries are discharged. Overwatering dilutes the acid excessively and electrolyte will be
expelled when charging.
Monitoring &
Maintenance
As batteries are
charged they create
bubbles of gas,
produced when the
chemical reaction
cannot keep up with
the energy input. Some
gassing is necessary in flooded cell batteries. The amount
and duration of gassing varies from one battery to another.
Gassing mixes the electrolyte and compensates for the
tendency of the electrolyte to stratify with the more dense
acid on the bottom. Gassing is the product of splitting
water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen. This consumes
water and creates the need for its periodic replacement.
Battery
Gassing
A slight acid mist is formed
as the electrolyte bubbles
upon charging. This mist is
highly corrosive, especially
to the metallic connectors
on the tops of the
batteries. Inspect for
corrosion and carefully clean these periodically as needed
with baking soda and water. Be sure not to get any baking
soda into the battery electrolyte as it will have a
neutralizing effect. Corrosion buildup can create a good
deal of electrical resistance, which can contribute to
shortened battery life and
the waste of power. It’s
always a good idea to wear
goggles and protective
gear (goggles, rubber
gloves and apron) when
working on your batteries
as the sulfuric acid can
seriously damage your
eyes and eat holes in your
clothes.
Corrosion
Solar Electric Products Catalog • May 2006
Equalization is a
controlled overcharging
of a fully charged
battery. This overcharge
mixes the electrolyte,
evens the charge among
varying battery cells and
reduces permanent sulfation of the battery plates. It is
energy invested in lengthening the life of the battery.
Though the PV system battery bank receives a good deal of
cycling and gassing through normal activity, equalization is
a complement to this activity and as a rule of thumb should
be done every 60 to 90 days. The equalization process
consumes water and produces much gassing, so your
batteries should be well ventilated during this charging.
Equalization charging voltages vary widely, as do duration
times, so the batteries should be monitored closely during
this process. Check periodically during the EQ process. You
don’t have to check every cell each time, but watch any that
show a high variation from the rest of the cells. Keep
checking the specific gravity of the electrolyte until you
receive three readings of 30 minutes apart which indicate
no further increase of specific gravity values. Keep a record
of individual cell voltages and specific gravity before and
after equalizing. Equalization will take your voltage to 15
volts or higher (30 volts on a 24 volt system) so make sure
any DC loads are disconnected before you begin.
Equalization
(EQ)
The connections from
battery to battery and
on to the charging and
load circuits are critical.
Before connecting your
batteries together, be
sure that the
interconnects and battery terminals are clean. When
making your series and parallel battery connections, be
careful not to torque the connecting hardware too tight as
the battery’s lead posts can break easily. After all battery
connections are made, go back to each battery terminal
and apply anti-corrosion coating or grease to minimize
corrosion build up. Torquing all bolts equally avoids
variations in resistance. This variation in resistance is the
main reason we prefer to minimize the number of parallel
strings in the bank. Higher resistance values on one string
of batteries result in less charge to that string and
consequently shorter life. We also place the main negative
and positive on opposing corners of the battery bank. The
goal is to keep the variation of resistance from one parallel
string to another to a minimum.

Like most things, you get what
you pay for. Used lead acid
batteries, especially large two
volt telephone type cells can be
found for sale at some very
attractive prices. While used solar modules and inverters
are usually an acceptable risk, used batteries are not.
Should you consider them? In our experience it is difficult
to know just how an older battery has been used and cared
for. Our recommendation on used batteries is to inspect
them carefully in person, get as much information as you
can on them (manufacturer, age, amp-hour capacity and
type of system they were used in) and have them load

tested. Without load testing used batteries you are really
guessing as to their remaining life. If you are considering
telephone cells, realize that they are normally shallow cycle
lead calcium grid construction, and should not be used in a
system designed for deep cycling.
DON’T SKIMP ON BATTERIES!
A correctly sized battery bank is vital to the proper
functioning of your system. Compromising on the battery
bank can lead to poor performance and dissatisfaction
with the entire system. Do not skimp here.

Safety and Disconnect Equipment
SAFETY AND DISCONNECT
EQUIPMENT
To have a safe code compliant photovoltaic system you need to install the appropriate disconnects, fuses and/or breakers
throughout your system. The National Electrical Code (NEC) states that a disconnect is required for every piece of equipment
(charge controllers, inverters, etc.) to isolate them from all sources of power (solar modules, batteries and generators). This might
sound complicated, but it is really pretty easy. On the following pages you will find several disconnect and overcurrent protection
options for your system. If you aren’t sure which disconnects you should use and where, just give your KSI dealer a call and he can
point you in the right direction.

Inverters
INVERTERS
The inverter is a basic component of PV systems and it converts DC power from the batteries or in the case of grid-tie,directly from the PV
array into high voltage AC power as needed.Inverters of the past were inefficient and unreliable while today’s generation of inverters are
very efficient (85 to 94%) and reliable.
Today,the majority,if not all of the loads in a typical remote home operate at 120 VAC from the inverter.Most stand-alone inverters
produce only 120 VAC,not 120/240 VAC as in the typical utility-connected home.The reason being,once electrical heating appliances are
replaced with gas appliances,there is little need for 240 VAC power.Exceptions include good-sized submersible pumps and shop tools
which can either be powered by a generator,step-up transformer,or possibly justify the cost of adding a second inverter.
Most utility line-tie inverters produce 208,240 or 480VAC.
Two types of stand-alone inverters predominate the market – modified sine and sine wave inverters.Modified sine wave units are less
expensive per watt of power and do a good job of operating all but the most delicate appliances.Sine wave units produce power which is
almost identical to the utility grid,will operate any appliance within their power range,and cost more per watt of output.
Utility-tie systems / sine wave inverters for utility interactive photovoltaic applications,provide direct conversion of solar electric energy to
utility power with or without a battery storage system.These systems are designed to meet or exceed utility power company
requirements and can be paralleled for any power level requirement.They are listed to UL 1741 for photovoltaic power systems.
Inverter Component
Checklist
While an inverter can account for a good portion of the
cost of a PV system, it is really a sub-system that requires a
number of additional components. To make a safe, reliable,
code compliant installation one should provide the
following:
Inverter to battery cabling
Because of the high current required on low voltage
circuits, this cable is large, commonly #2 to 4/0 in size.
Smaller conductors than required are unsafe and will not
allow the inverter to perform to its full rating.
DC input disconnect and overcurrent
protection
AC output disconnect and overcurrent
protection
If the breaker panel, which is fed from the inverter, is
adjacent to the inverter, then the main breaker will serve as
the inverter output disconnect and overcurrent protection.
If, however, this panel is not grouped with the inverter, then
a separate unit should be installed. This also holds true for
AC circuits coming into the inverter from a generator or
utility source. A second breaker may be needed if these
breakers are not grouped.
Inverter Sub-System Checklist
_____ Inverter to battery cabling
_____ DC disconnect and overcurrent device
_____ Inverter conduit boxes
_____ Inverter output breaker box
_____ Generator input breaker box
_____ Shunt(s) if required for monitoring
It is important to have safe installation with a properly sized
DC rated, UL listed disconnect. Typically the disconnect
works in conjunction with an overcurrent protection device
such as a fuse or circuit breaker. These components are
usually installed in an enclosure which can also house
shunts and additional equipment or circuit breakers.

Inverters
Most larger
inverters can
operate as
battery
chargers as
well.This is
easily and
economically accomplished because of the design of most
inverters. Inverters step up low voltage DC power and change it
to 120VAC power. Battery chargers do the reverse of this.
Built-In Battery
Chargers
Transfer switches are also incorporated into these Inverter /
Chargers so that the AC loads can be powered directly from the
generator when the battery charger is operating.
57
Comparing Inverters
Inverters are compared by three factors:
• Continuous wattage rating. Hour after hour, what
amount of power in watts can the inverter deliver.
• Surge Power. How much power and for how
long can an inverter deliver the power needed
to start motors and other loads.
• Efficiency. How efficient is the inverter at low,
medium and high power draws. How much
power is used at idle.
From a reliability, performance, and economical standpoint,
built-in battery chargers are the way to go.
A typical 12volt lead-acid
battery must
be taken to
approximately
14.2-14.6 VDC
before it is
fully charged. (For 24 volt systems double these figures for 48
volt, multiply by four.) If taken to a lesser voltage level, some of
the sulfate deposits that form during discharge will remain on
the battery’s lead plates. Over time, these deposits will cause a
200 amp-hour battery to act more like a 100 amp-hour battery,
and battery life will be shortened considerably. Once fully
charged, batteries should be held at a lower float voltage to
maintain their charge – typically 13.2 to 13.4 volts. Higher
voltage levels will "gas" the battery and boil off electrolyte,
requiring more frequent maintenance.
Multi-Stage
Battery Charging
Most automotive battery charger designs cannot deal with the
conflicting voltage requirements of the initial “bulk charge” and
subsequent “float” or maintenance stage. These designs can
accommodate only one charge voltage, and therefore must
use a compromise setting – typically 13.8 volts. The result is a
slow incomplete charge, sulfate deposit build-up, excessive
gassing and reduced battery life.
The charger available in our inverters automatically cycles
batteries through a proper three stage sequence (bulk,
absorption and float) to assure a rapid and complete charge
without excessive gassing.
Factory battery charger settings on most inverter-charger
combinations are optimal for a lead acid (liquid electrolyte)
battery bank of 250-300 amp hours in a 70°F environment. If
your installation varies from these conditions, you will obtain
better performance from your batteries if you adjust the
control settings.
The Maximum Charge Rate in amps should be set to 20-25% of
the total amp-hour rating of a liquid electrolyte battery bank.
For example, a 400 amp-hour bank should be charged at no
more than an 80 -100 amp rate. Excessive charge rates can
damage batteries and create a safety hazard.
The Bulk Charge Voltage of typical liquid electrolyte lead acid
batteries should be about 14.6 VDC. There is no one correct
voltage for all types of batteries. Incorrect voltages will limit
battery performance and useful life. Check the battery
manufacturer’s recommendations.
The Float Voltage setting should hold the batteries at a level
high enough to maintain a full charge, but not so high as to
cause excessive "gassing" which will "boil off" electrolyte. For a
12-volt liquid electrolyte battery at rest, a float voltage of 13.213.4 is normally appropriate; gel cells are typically maintained
between 13.5 and 13.8. If the batteries are being used while in
the float stage, slightly higher settings may be required.
Charge voltage guidelines used here are based on ambient
temperatures of 70°F. If your batteries are not in a 70°F
environment, the guidelines are not valid. Temperature
Compensation automatically adjusts the voltage settings to
compensate for the differences between ambient temperature
and the 70°F baseline. Temperature compensation is important
for all battery types, but particularly gel cell, valve-regulated
types which are more sensitive to temperature.

affordable. Now anyone can install a solar array on their home or business to reduce or eliminate
their monthly electric bill while doing their part to reduce air pollution. To take full advantage of
this type of a system, net metering from your utility company would be a big plus as it allows you
to turn your existing kilowatt-hour meter backwards when your PV system is producing more
power than you are using.
GT inverters incorporate all of the NEC and IEEE required AC and DC input/output and grounding
connections as well as an AC/DC disconnect switch. Ground fault protection is included for
installer convenience. With a NEMA 3R rated enclosure the inverter can even be mounted on an
outside wall near your utility service entrance. Conduit box is removable.

Backup Mode
The SW Series II includes a
powerful battery charger
and a 60 amp AC transfer
switch.When utilizing the
charging circuitry, we
typically program the unit
to activate the battery
charger, and switch all AC
loads to generator power
via a pre-programmed low
voltage set-point.
Extensive automatic
generator start features are
standard and user
programmable. Gen start
can be triggered by battery
voltage, load size in amps
or time of day."Quiet time"
can be set during which
the generator is not
allowed to start unless a
"must start" override
voltage is reached. "Warmup seconds," max cranking
seconds," and "max charge
amps and/or gen amps AC"
are some of the user
adjustable parameters.

Sunny Central 125
The Sunny Central is the culmination of many years of experience with the Sunny Boy and European
Sunny Central photovoltaic inverters. The design incorporates the same proven MPP tracker found in
more than 100,000 fielded Sunny Boys’ . The high efficiency power stage produces a perfect AC sine
wave exceeding the latest FCC and IEEE requirements. The AC system isolation transformer is
incorporated into the inverter cabinet and is disconnected whenever the inverter is not producing
power. This eliminates the unnecessary and costly power losses.
The enclosure is powder-coated aluminum and stainless steel designed for long-term outdoor
installation in the harshest of environments. The power electronics are air cooled and protected in an
isolated enclosure. The magnetics and isolation transformer are housed in a separate enclosure,
thermally isolated from sensitive electronics.

OutBack PS1
Grid-Tie Solar with Battery Backup
Introducing the new PS1, a revolution for grid-tie solar with battery backup. Designed with
an emphasis on performance, ease of installation and low maintenance, we have
eliminated all concerns about batteries in grid-tie systems.
A grid-tie solar system incorporating battery backup is common sense.The PS1 system
performs better than some battery-less inverters. In side-by-side, real-world testing, the
PS1 performed within 5% of the kilowatt hour performance achieved by the current
industry leading inverter.
All fears about the complexity of grid-tie solar with battery backup are eliminated, thanks
to our “install ready”design.The PS1 system is a factory wired solution with a complete
ETL listing.The type 3R rainproof construction ensures that there is plenty of flexibility in
where you choose to install the PS1.
The PS1 system is designed to use sealed AGM type batteries - eliminating the need for
periodic watering. OutBack’s advanced charge control algorithm and smart battery
management techniques allow for battery life to exceed 10 years in most grid-tie backup
applications.These units come with a 5 year warranty.
The PS1-3000 uses a vented inverter, the PS1-2500 uses a sealed inverter.
BATTERIES NOT INCLUDED.

Xantrex T-240 Transformer
The T-240 transformer from Xantrex can be used in several ways;
step-up, step-down or as a balancing transformer. Typical use of
this transformer is to operate a 240 VAC well pump from a 120 VAC
source like a single inverter. The other application for the T-240
transformer is to better balance the output of a 120/240 VAC
generator feeding into a single 120 VAC inverter/charger. The T240 has a 3400 VA continuous output at 25°C with a 12 W idle
power consumption. The T-240 is mounted in an indoor-rated
powder-coated steel enclosure with numerous 3/4 inch and 1 inch
knockouts. Two year warranty. 46 lbs.

Wire Sizing Tables
Use these tables to determine the appropriate wire size for charging circuits in your PV power system. These tables will show you the
maximum one way wire distance the conductor will pass current at the rated voltage drop. Resistance in wiring has been calculated for
the round trip based on one way distance. Cross-reference by wire gauge and current (amps) to find length. For example, on the 48V
table, 30A with #6 wire will run a maximum distance of 81.5 feet. This is based on 5% voltage drop and maximum temperature of 75°C.
R=Resistance in Ohms per 1000 feet of wire.

Wire Sizing Tables
Use these tables to determine the appropriate wire size for charging circuits in your PV power system. These tables will
show you the maximum one way wire distance the conductor will pass current at the rated voltage drop. Resistance in
wiring has been calculated for the round trip based on one way distance. Cross-reference by wire gauge and current
(amps) to find length. For example, on the 24V table, 30A with #6 wire will run a maximum distance of 32.5 feet. This is
based on 4% voltage drop and maximum temperature of 75°C. R=Resistance in Ohms per 1000 feet of wire.

* The maximum input current is calculated by multiplying the inverter's maximum continuous power output by 1.25 and then dividing by 0.85 and the lowest voltage that the inverter will operate at (11V
for a 12V unit, 22V for a 24V unit and 44V for a 48V unit). For example, a SW4024 is a 24V unit with a 4000W continuous output so you would multiply 4000W by 1.25 to get 5000W. You would then divide
5000W by the lowest inverter efficiency of 0.85 to get 5882.4W and then divide that by the lowest inverter voltage of 22 volts to get 267 amps. We downsize the overcurrent protection to 250 amps for the
SW4024 so that we can still use #4/0 AWG cables.
* With OutBack inverters, the full power efficiency should be calculated with a lowest expected full power eficiency factor of 0.90 instead of 0.85 as used with the other brands of inverters.

The cable size is the same for free air as in conduit. This preserves the performance of the inverter (motor starting surge) and maximizes the conversion efficiency of the system.
** Minimum cable sizes are for 90° C rated cable from NEC Tables 310-16 & 310-17. Also refer to NEC articles 240-3b and 240-6a for proper sizing of overcurrent protection devices. Cable sizes are good up
to 10' of one way distance. If you use "free air" size cable in conduit, the NEC requires that you use double conductors (two positive and two negative cables). Multiply the rated cable ampacity by 0.8 for
parallel conductors.
Smaller cable sizes than those listed here may be used as long as the overcurrent protection is reduced as well. We typically sell #2, #2/0 and #4/0 AWG inverter cables that should be matched with 110A,
175A and 250A overcurrent protection devices respectively. Using larger cables is perfectly acceptable, but you might run into problems fitting them into various disconnects and fuse blocks.
MCM stands for "thousands of circular mils" and it represents the cross sectional area of cables larger than #4/0 AWG. See NEC Table 8 "Conductor Properties" for details.
1
Cable is sized for 10 feet total length. From 10 feet to 20 feet total length, double the recommended wire size.
2
Cable sizes are recommended by the manufacturer for inverter performance, i.e. surging, ripple and voltage drop. For that reason, cable size given is the same for conduit and free air.

Battery Installation and Wiring
Batteries may be wired in either series or parallel configuration. When a battery is wired in series the positive terminal is wired to the
next battery’s negative terminal. This increases the voltage while maintaining amperage of the two batteries. With parallel wiring the
positive terminal is wired to the next battery’s positive terminal, and the negative to the next negative. This arrangement increases
amperage while maintaining voltage. One common mistake is to believe that both amperage and voltage will increase when wiring
batteries together. It will not; only one value will increase with respect to the arrangement. A battery bank may combine both series and
parallel wiring configurations. Series strings of batteries are used to achieve the correct voltage, then a number of these series strings
are attached in parallel to increase the amp-hours of the total battery bank.
