Solar power usually is associated with a sense of high-tech. In reality, it is quite simple and appropriate technology.
Design of solar power system starts with a survey of needs and location data (step 1-3).
The first, most logical, but also the most difficult question concerns the power demand.
The system reliability is closely related to the system autonomy. How long is the sun supposed to stay behind the clouds maximal?
The irradiation is obtained from the internet. The NASA developed a database for you.
The general system lay-out is not by definition the most logical for your situation.
The choice of the battery is crucial.
The performance of a solar panel is expressed in Wp (Watt-peak). In this step, you determine the capacity you need.
Power from solar panels is more and more competitive to power "from the plug point".
