Most of the larger solar panels with a power rating of more than 50 watts already have MC4 connectors. MC4 is the name of all solar panel connection types, which stands for “4mm multi-contact”. It is a circular plastic housing developed by Multi-Contact Corporation, with a sin...
When connecting Slocable solar pv system, the most ideal approach to add assurance is by using fuses or circuit breakers. The correct use of fuses and circuit breakers is important to maintain safety. Fuses and circuit breakers are used to protect the wiring from getting excessively ho...
People often have a misunderstanding that as long as the solar panel is damaged, it can’t work, and naturally it can’t generate any current. The following experiment tells us that this is the beginning of the danger.
How terrible is a broken solar panel? Watch the vide...
Regardless of foreign or domestic, the application proportion of 1500V system is increasing. According to IHS statistics, in 2018, the application of 1500V in foreign large ground power stations exceeded 50%; according to preliminary statistics, among the third batch of front-runners i...
Northwest China has the richest solar energy resources in China. It has a dry climate, very little rainfall, and direct sunlight for a long time. Many large-scale photovoltaic projects are built here. However, frequent sand and dust weather caused great trouble for solar power generati...
Wire types vary in conductor material and insulation.
Aluminum or Copper: The two normal conductor materials utilized in commercial solar installations are copper and aluminum. Copper has a more prominent conductivity than aluminum, thus it carries more current than aluminum ...
Photovoltaic modules have a design service life of more than 25 years. Correspondingly, corresponding requirements are set for the working life of its supporting electrical components. Each electrical component has its mechanical life. The electrical life is related to the ultimate benefi...
The current carrying capacity of an insulated conductor or cable is the maximum current that it can continuously carry without exceeding its temperature rating. It is also known as ampacity.
Whilst the cables are in operation they suffer electrical losses which manifest as...
