Whether for off grid photovoltaic systems, wind power systems or even grid tied solar systems – in order to ensure a constant, consistent and sure flow of power – a battery is required.
THE PROBLEM: Premature failure of batteries in deep cycle applications:
SOLUTION #1 THE DESIGN OF THE POWER SUPPLY:- Trained and experienced designers will ensure that the power supply is designed around the power requirement, the area in which it is situated and the other components in the system.
If the power supply is incapable of supplying the power required – the batteries will not receive the charge they require and they will fail – no matter what quality they are.
Specialised Battery Systems offers trained and experienced system designers – eliminating failure due to poor power supply sizing.
