A solar controller is used to manage solar power system and it saves electricity during cloudy days. It happens in solar power system that power runs back into solar systems and the energy stored during the whole day gets wasted. The charge controller maintains the energy in the bank of battery and prevents electricity from getting wasted. There are two types of charge controller available to use for solar power system. PWM and MPPT is the best solar controller and preferred by every user. There are also some chargers available with additional features like load control and lightning control but the main feature of a solar controller is to manage solar power in the bank of battery.

What is MPPT and MPPT solar controller?

MPPT solar controller – MPPT solar charge controller or solar controller is a converter which optimizes the match between PV panels and utility grid. MPPT is maximum power point tracking system. The charge controller converts higher direct current voltage to low direct current voltage through solar panel and the low direct current is required for charging battery of the solar power system.

What is MPPT?

MPPT is a panel tracking used to optimize the output from the sun and it seeks the sky to get maximum amount of sunlight. The charge controller evaluates the panel’s output and it compares the output and battery voltage of solar power system

What is pwm and its benefits in solar power system?

Pulse width modulation controls the digital signal to control the whole device and it decreases the power loss. Pulse width modulation is also used for providing constant voltage to battery to get charged.  It reduces the issues like gassing and heating of the battery and it also has the capability to return the battery capacity backup to it.
