June 3, 2019 - Vista, California - Axiom Test Equipment, an electronic test equipment rentals and sales company headquartered in North County San Diego, has published a blog post entitled, "Investigating Inverters as Part of a Solar Array," which discusses the technical and test requirements for the subject. Solar power supplies are being used for remote and/or unmanned communications and data collection and reporting locations across the globe, and careful attention must be paid to component selection. RF Cafe visitor Joe Cahak published a great whitepaper entitled, "Solace in Solar," that provides a detailed look at his personal solar power installation project. Sophisticated test equipment is required for development and installation, all of which Axiom Test Equipment can provide on a sale or lease basis.

Investigating Inverters as Part of a Solar Array

by Axiom Test Equipment

Solar energy is a clean alternative to other sources of electricity for many business and home users of electricity, once the right equipment is installed. It requires the highly visible solar panels placed in a position and an angle best suited to "catch" the sunlight for the maximum amount of time each day. The number of photovoltaic (PV) cells used in those panels is determined by the amount of electricity required from a PV system and the maximum amount of power will not always be the same due to cloudy days and rainstorms which will limit the amount of electricity from PV sources. But solar energy is a renewable resource and is inexpensive once a PV system has been installed and the different components working properly. This can be done with the proper tools and the right test equipment to evaluate the conversion of sunlight to direct-current (DC) electricity and then, if necessary, to check on the change of DC voltage to AC voltage through an inverter. For many solar energy arrays, that inverter is the most important part of the mix since it is only one step away from the coffee maker!

N8957APV Photovoltaic Array Simulator Manual - RF CafePV-powered energy systems are becoming more common as individuals become more environmentally aware and businesses become more bottom-line conscious. Such systems are easy to identify by their large arrays of PV cells (hopefully) pointed towards the sun and converting sunlight to DC electricity. The number of solar cells in each array is determined by the amount of available sunlight, the amount of electricity generated by each panel, and the amount of energy that will be consumed each day ...
